The Job Search

I like to think ahead. So much so that I've already started applying for jobs. For some careers, now is the time to start. For others (like the ones I intend to go into) the recommended protocol is to send your resume 2-3 months in advance of when you'll start working.

But, much like the travel bug that had me looking at flight discounts last night, I've got the career bug.

This weekend I spent an inordinate amount of time looking up potential careers. The top contenders at this point are: Simon & Schuster, Random House, McGraw Hill, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, ABC, CBS, CNN and the Martha Stewart Brand. Preferably, I'd like to be an assistant producer, publicist or assistant in the publishing industry. Ideally, I'd like to work with an Early Show/Today Show type set or with Martha Stewart's magazine. Yesterday I told my mother that I'd give my left arm for the Martha Stewart job. She replied, "I think you'll need that left arm AND another right arm!" She's probably right. But I've got the bug.

I spent the whole afternoon applying for an Assistant Managing Editor job with Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. Come April, I will be a nutcase.

Prayers are appreciated.
