I’ve been posting my resume on many job sites like Monster, Hot Jobs, CareerBuilder, Jobbing. I’ve even gone as far as to asking professional recruiters like Apple one, Ultimate Staffing and Ajilon for assistance.

First off let me tell you, they are useless. I don’t think they ever even read my resume. I’ve been getting emails with position as receptionist. I didn’t go to college so I can be a receptionist, at least find me a $80K/yr receptionist job if you are going to insult me.

Went to many interviews, but I don’t like most of their immature work environment. One job that I actually kinda like was at the Hilton in Anaheim (2 blocks from Disneyland) I was offered the job, but they only pay $13/Hr. and I would be “eligible” for UP TO 4% increase after 12 months, that’s a $0.52 raise!. Of course I refused, and then figured out that it would take me 22 years to get paid what I had in the past! And that’s IF I get the maximum increase each year.
