I don't enjoy the interview process, being extroverted, which is draining, wearing a suit and pretending to be excited about the company. I don't like braving the cold in a suit and heels to drop off my resume and schmooze with the hiring executive, especially since in this economy chances are I'll never hear back from them. I don't like the low pay and prestige, the embarassment of telling someone I'm an admin, especially if they know where I went to school. The list goes on. Someone just started a thread that says that you should enjoy the process of getting to a goal.
Is the economy really that bad everywhere in the US? It's just the way some people are talking they make it sound as if the entire country is plunging towards third world status, which seems highly improbable no matter how bad things may seem.
But what I'm getting at is, would it be possible to do a bit of research to find out if there are more job openings in other towns/cities/states?
