In my life, I’ve been a mover, a barista, a mailman, a substitute teacher, a permit technician, a computer repair tech, a farmer, and an author. I have a degree in Physics and an interest in hydrology and horticulture. My total experience in hydrology is reading books, flooding my sandbox as a child so I could dig canals, and trying to dam the stream by my great-grandmother’s house with river rocks. I never considered a career in horticulture until I decided that I liked eating more than being a small business owner and a nearby greenhouse was hiring. Where I agree whole-heartily with career experts: none of the above are particularly good ways of trying to start your career.I also hate the importance that networking has in job searching. I hate it because I suck at it. For two years, I attend a weekly job searcher networking meeting, and have used it to meet a total of 3 people in the water resources industry. But at least I got free coffee. :) I seem to be a magnet for absurdity. I’ve been laid off a week after getting a promotion. At a DUI checkpoint, I failed a field sobriety test…even though I don’t drink (breathalyzer proved my innocence). I live in a town with more than a dozen breweries…even though I don’t drink. It’s gotten better now that Google incorporates social media profiles in their search results (okay, one thing that it’s good for), but most of the results for a search of my name are for a South African cricket player and quasi-British noble.
