I've been a teaching assistant at my university for the past academic year, but my contract ended in early May so I have been left to look for work. I've been having a rather difficult time with the shabby economy and all. Also, potential employers seem to disregard me right off the bat as "too educated." I didn't realize that a master's degree might actually hurt my chances of getting a job. I've applied for several job openings and finally have interviews scheduled for two of them. Tomorrow I interview for an assistant to the Public Communications director for the city. Next Tuesday I go in for an interview and a test to become a DPS police communications operator. I'm really nervous as I haven't actually had to interview for a job in a loooooong time. I really need to land a good job - and rather quickly as I've been out of work for a few weeks now. Any advice would be most appreciated and please send me some good luck vibes! I'm going to need them!!
