what a whiner

It's a damn good job my holidays are coming up, otherwise (WARNING! Over-sized whingey sentence coming up) I might start dwelling on the fact that despite a degree in Psychology and Philosophy, a masters in European law, the experience I got from an internship at an international NGO in Brussels and a second at the European Commission, two EU-financed year-long projects, all the brownie points from volunteering with disabled people, refugees, homeless people and poor communities in various countries, four languages (and a tiny bit of Spanish from evening classes) all my fan-bloody-tastic people skills, not to mention all the writing and editing and the bloody great smile on my face, NOBODY has given me a Proper Job yet.

What's a girl to do?

I think you have the right to whine. You have paid your dues, sister.

Honestly, I think it's just a matter of time until the right job comes along.

I whole-heartedly disagree. Find a company you'd like to work for, walk into their personnel department, slap the secretary hard when she tells you that her boss is busy, walk into that office, kick the person in face, tell them your salary demands, drop a business card, and spit on the floor as you walk out.

I have a feeling aggression and violence may not work in human rights NGOs Aaron, but I appreciate the suggestion :)
