My Search for a Job

I leave to London in approximately 7 months and I need to find a job. I am leaving Tampa, Florida where I thought I would have tons of connections to get me a great job fresh out of college, but that’s not the case. So what now? Is the question that seems to boggle every graduating college student. I am thinking that eagerly searching online is the first step and checking to see if I have any useful connections to land me a job.

Let’s see I updated my LinkedIn profile, updated my resume, and signed up for Twitter. Today, I also browsed through U.K.’s Monster.com as well as the American Monster.com. I found nothing that would hire me with my lack of experience. I was unable to intern while in college because I had to work full-time.

Oh, I did however applied to  London Burberry through LinkedIn. I don’t have any fashion experience, so I doubt that would get very far.

Chipotle is opening up in London in April of 2010. At least that is comforting to me. I would really miss Chipotle when I left the states. It’s bad enough the weather sucks and even the residents hate the weather there, but the food won’t be nearly as delicious as here in the states. Maybe I should apply to Chipotle?

I am literally starting fresh in London, I know a handful of people. None that could benefit me in my field, I don’t think. Any suggestions?

“Obama has Balls…Big Ones!”

U.S. President Barack Obama flew to London yesterday to attend the  G20 Summit.  This was his first overseas trip as an American leader. He was greeted by hundreds of thousands of people. Security everywhere, including Scotland Yard’s finest.

Yesterday,  I spoke with a valued source and a close friend of mine who is a detective for the Metropolitan Police of Scotland Yard.  He was amazed at how fearless my American President was after the meeting.

Apparently, Obama jumped into his vehicle, put down his window and waved to his screaming fans as they drove off.  WOW! Those bulletproof black, heavily tinted Escalades are so heavily armored and  concealing for a reason, right?

Obama demonstrated how we, as Americans, should not be afraid anymore. Hence, the reason for banning the term “War on Terror” to “Overseas Contingency Operations” and trashing the colorful threat level we used to eagerly wait for on CNN.

So lets get some balls like Obama and stop living in fear!!
