If anyone out there, like me, is looking for a job, I would highly recommend that they do not use Monster.com. Basically, here is what happened when I searched for a job on Monster.com:
I click "government and policy" as the category, hoping to find a think tank job
--> The jobs listed are "Engineer -- U.S. Army," "Truck Driver-- U.S. Air Force"
I click "marketing" as the category, hoping to find an advertising agency job
--> The jobs listed are "Recruiter -- U.S. Marines," "Ad Specialist -- U.S. Army"
So I click "Entertainment" as the category, figuring this has got to have some jobs I want
--> The first job is "Executive Assistant -- Disney, Inc."- Maybe not my thing, but fair enough at least it's in the civilian sector.
The next job is "Administrative Assitant -- Fox News Corp." - Again, close, but not quite there.
Then the next job is "You like entertaining? How about ENTERTAINING THE TROOPS! -- U.S.O."
Tired of the military shills at Monster.com, I decided I'd look around for some jobs where I would tele-commute from home. Then I remembered from my past experience during an internship i had last winter that basically a day of tele-commuting goes like this:
-wake up at Noon
-strip down to t-shirt and boxers
-fire up the computer
-open work document
-minimize work document
-IM with Tom
-realize it's already 2PM
-order delivery food
-eat the food
-rub one out
-feel like shit because rubbing one out is what a chimp would do if he were in a lab experiment and the researcher told him to fill out an Excel spreadsheet
-wake up at 5:30AM and hurriedly finish the work before real people's work day starts
