…here is a sketchbook page I drew half-asleep at 1:30 last night:
Should I be posting pages like this in the middle of a job search? Should I be posting pages like this at all? Probably not. But why not? Shouldn’t we all be honest with each other?
Looking for work sucks. It sucks horribly. The worst part is figuring out how to fit what it is that you do into language that a hiring manager can dig.
And quite honestly, I’m sympathetic with hiring managers. I’m sympathetic with all participants in the hiring process. How do we communicate what we’re looking for? How can we get on the same page? Finding work sure is a pain in the ass, so I can imagine hiring good workers must be a real pain in the ass, too.
I did a re-tooling of my sidebar on this page to try to distill what it is that I do and do well into a few sentences. I want to make my living communicating with pictures and words. It’s that simple. Communicating with pictures and words. That’s my passion, that’s my skill.
“But we need health care” is the punchline to our lives.
