Looks like the mapping career opportunity came through! They offered me the job yesterday afternoon!
Starting next Tuesday, I will officially become a GIS Technician. That means I will be using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to assist in forms of data collection, data representation, and map creation. The company's focus and objective is working with transportation systems (streets, roads, intersections, possibly highways) and developing ways in which to improve them. And with a target area spread over the contiguous 48 states, there are a lot of roads to analyze, and a lot of possibility for travel And I am so excited!
So, yeah, I'm going to have to quit my movie theatre job,after working there for only a day...what a waste, but you do what you have to do
Still, I want to spread encouragement to the unemployed, don't give up hope. There's usually something to take away that you can use as a positive side. With unemployment, the biggest asset is time. You can use that time for physical and health improvement, inner meditation, spiritual growth or just fun. Although, without work, you usually don't appreciate the leisure as much, but with work, from what I hear, you will be wanting more leisure time. If you want to help your situation, try using that time learning or refining a skill (art, mechanics, language, communication etc.), using the Internet to learn new ones (computer skills, design skills, software/programming etc.) that could be relevant to a job. They would make great examples for interviews. Or, try volunteering at a place you love, or a place you're interested in working. In doing so you can add a new entry to your resume and establish a reputation. They very well can think of you first when a position opens. And when there was absolutely nothing else going for me a little prayer never hurt.
But yeah, that's the official update. Thanks for reading. Hope you'll stay tuned for the art or other journals
