Day 1 unemployed

Technically, yesterday was my first day of being unemployed. But, because it was a national holiday, I'm not counting it. Maybe I should, though, since I would have worked yesterday.

So far, I've had two job interviews. Unfortunately, neither of them are very promising since they are both part-time jobs.

Also, I stopped in at the state unemployment office today. It was a very busy place, and the people were not very friendly. In their defense, however, they do a good job of moving people in and out of there quickly. Efficiency as a trade-off for kindness, perhaps.

Have you ever noticed how some job ads state something like, "salary commensurate with experience?" What does that really mean? In my observation, it's misleading. I've never been paid a salary commensurate with my experience. Maybe this time.
