    I went out in the spring and got a part time job working at the distillery in Turner Valley. When I got called in for an interview they had my resume out and asked what I could possibly want from a job there seeing as I was grossly over qualified. I told them I just had a genuine interest in making liquor and what they do so I was willing to do what ever it took to be a part of that; from running their lab, to driving a delivery truck, to cleaning the fermentation vessels, or sweeping the floor. In response to pay all I said was that I wanted to be paid accordingly for what ever position was available and I didn't have any dreams of having it substitute my career's income.

    If you can get your foot in the door it might be worth while coming up with some boxed answers to interview questions to help ease their minds when they see your qualifications and job history.
    Nicely done!

    I think in times like this, it is good to branch out and go do those jobs that you just want to try and see how it goes. It might not be great for your pocket book, but it is good for the soul.

    Little update to this. Did some work earlier in the summer through my business and the dollars per hour are bloody fantastic. Still haven't figured out how to turn that into an ongoing thing however, which is really frustrating. If I could get even halfway busy with this, I'd never have a real job again. Really enjoy it too.

    To fill up the bank account a bit, decided I needed some "actual" work too. I recently started a 90-day temporary position as a shop supervisor at one of the large rental car companies where I have a family member working. It's a weird gig, basically hanging around during the evening shift encouraging guys to be efficient while they clean cars, and cleaning a few myself when things are busy. Plus helping the big boss out with some paperwork and organizing. It's not fun, but it's something new, it utilizes some of my skills, and it pays much better than minimum wage. yay.
    Help me figure out what to do with my life. Suggestions?

    Ron Artest did it in his rookie year. Well, more like he applied and listed the Bulls president as his reference. lol

    With that in mind, we should start a thread on employee discounts

    Fire me a PM. It sounds like you are a bright guy, and I've been thinking about hiring another research analyst to do some of the (I'll be frank) grunt work. Wouldn't be full time, more "project based" (read inconsistent), but would probably be interesting to do if it's up your alley.

    This job doesn't qualify me for a discount, so it sure won't get you one bro...
