Occupational experience

It’s something you gain at work while solving uncommon problems, yet, the very lack of it keeps you out of work. Weird stuff. And if you’re thinking odd jobs – that’s what I did but no, think again. Would you hire someone basing on a CV without any serious record? I know I would, yet, I’m pretty awesome person (winking at ya!). Even if the interview goes well a reasonable employer will give a job to a guy who doesn’t need further training and showed the same or acceptably less amount of skill. Hiring myself for an unreasonable employer just doesn’t sound like an option.

I look around and see five choices…

First, the common one: do nothing. Did it already – it didn’t help much.
Second, the hopeless: keep sending applications. But how many? And what to apply for? Do I even know what I want to do?
Third, the naive: shred a masterpiece and wait until someone serious gives a crap. And I mean other crap than copying my work.
Fourth, the science-fiction: start my own business providing services related to my occupation, yet, somehow uncommon but still popular on the market. Yeah, right! And finally…
Fifth
, the ungrateful one… Get a job below my qualifications. Fuck.

Not sympathising with any of those,
