Oh man where do I start with this, I’ve updated my bazillonth resume’, networked, netfailed, used all kinds of social media to try and find something that will pay me more than the paltry annual salary I am currently at ( don’t get me wrong, its not bad if I was single, but with a family, I’ve got to find a way to make much more).
Hounding friends is out of the question, but should this be the way to find another passion? I am talented, I know it, and I’m not bashful in saying so,, what I do is a very complex thing, it doesn’t pay the bills however and I’ve got to get something that is above the 60k range just to get my head above the fill line. .. lets see here, let me list some things that I can do maybe I can create something out of thin air…
OTR Truck Driver ( I drove 18 wheelers as a young man, could still do that but would involve being away from family)
Consultant.. probably would be a great job, but need capital to keep the $ flowing
Producer (already doing that, that’s why I’m looking)
Voice Talent (ditto)
Talk Radio Host (maybe)
Ditch Digger (done that too as a young man, probably not going to make 60K doing this)
Carpet Technician (again as younger man, knees wouldn’t be able to take that now)
Dry Waller (yes probably could do this)
well,, that’s pretty much it at this writing.. sad isn’t it?.. No offense to the people that already do these jobs listed above, but I’ve come a long way in this communications career and I’ve got to move on into something different if I want to succeed again. I fancy a gig as an Operations Mgr, Communications Mgr, perhaps Chief of Operations at an NPR station.. perhaps….
oooo I know , I know.. a super talented managerial type hero that specializes in creating and developing winning strategies, ideas and information technologies in an uber-tech society of freshly minted college graduates.
