When is the right time to look for work? I’m going to be traveling for the next three months and I feel the need to look for a job when I’m done traveling, or even look for work while I’m traveling. Isn’t that a little insane? I’ve had legitimate jobs since I was 16 and some under the table sutff before that, but I can say without too much sarcasm that I’ve always had a job since I was responsible enough to take one. I’ve worked everything from construction to flipping burgers and pushing boxes to pinning a microphone on the president of the US. It’s never been dull, my work life, in fact it seems to be getting more and more interesting.
Since I was 13 I’ve worked in the entertainment field, I started by working backstage in high school building sets for the theatre department. One of the first productions I was involved in was a musical called “Oklahoma!” what a great cast and crew that was, I know that was the moment I decided I didn’t want to do anything else in my life. Every chance I got I was in the theatre, building something, or learning how to do something. Since working on those first shows I’ve been involved in well over 1000 productions, they’ve ranged from community theatre in my hometown of Renton, WA to the Asian Games in Doha, Qatar. I can now say I’ve traveled around the world working in the entertainment industry. I can only hope that I will be able to continue working in the entertainment industry for quite some time to come.
Why is it I can write something like this, but I can’t write a simple cover letter for any job I’m applying for? How messed up am I :)?
