How Can I Find A Real Job In A False Economy?Submitted by Ranger_Will on Wed, 11/27/2013 - 00:33
As a graduate of 2008, I have been dumped into the worst economy this country has seen in recent years. Since then I have worked 4 jobs, all for states and the Federal Government. My username might just clue you in on my profession, but to make it blatantly obvious I have been a Park Ranger of the non-lethal variety.
I have a B.A. in History, have worked in libraries, national landmarks, battlefields, natural wonders, etc. My primary duties involved giving educational tours for school groups and other visitors, historical research, and (my favorite...not) fee collection. However as a result of the lack of opportunity in the Federal Government, and also as a result of a change in my personal beliefs, I no longer want to continue this career. The work has always been seasonally based which meant spending whatever I'd earned through the year (i refuse to take unemployment) when the job came to an end and I had to survive in the off time.
In short, do you, my DP friends has an suggestions which dont involve being a peon for The State?
(I would include teaching for public school as also being a govt job.)
