Job Searching Blues

Updated on October 4, 2013

Went back to school to improve my station

But the weak job market brings limitation.

Accomplished so much, awarded for deeds

Yet still can’t seem to find any good leads

Searching out companies, researching them all

Waiting each day for that important call

As frustration sets in, I have started to worry

The future it seems is looking quite blurry

How do you start in a new chosen field?

Unrelated experience, unable to yield

Months have gone by, dwindling hope

Look to family and friends to help me cope

They say good things come to those that wait

But waiting is something I truly hate

Being proactive used to serve me well

But this time it seems only time will tell

I can’t let down those who are counting on me

Last week in my search so we will see

If I am not successful I will have to settle until

With a job I don’t want that will pay my bills.

      Truly spoken from the desperate heart, VernalEquinox. You speak for so many. Well done, succinctly put. I wish you much luck and plenty of blessings in your search. Keep your head to the sky (said EWF :-) Voted up and awesome.
