Things I Wish My Dad Would Understand

novas-grimoire:

That just because I am not currently looking for a job does not mean I am happy where I am. 

As I recall, he wasn’t all that fucking happy working at Kimberly Clark for five years. Yet he still did it and he wasn’t actively looking for a job! 

No. I’m not overly thrilled to be working at Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart is WAY below my skill level and certainly NOT what I spent thousands of dollars going to college for. But a paycheck’s a paycheck and I need one. And after what happened with Judson Smith, I don’t know that I’m going to be 100% leaving Wal-Mart if I do get another job. I don’t want to be laid off again and have to go on unemployment again, especially if that job is through a temp agency. 

I mean, I get why he’s insisting that I find another job. In April, I will age out of my parents’ insurance. If I’m understanding the benefits policy at the Wal-Mart I currently work at, I have to stay there until next August to be eligible. Unless they are nice and make me full time. Which I doubt because I’m a cashier and they won’t let me leave. 

But at the same time, I’m fucking sick of putting in applications and never hearing anything from them again or being told that they’ve decided to go with another candidate or going on interviews and then the interviews going nowhere. 

And I can’t figure out what the fuck I’m doing wrong! No one’s been able to tell me what I’m doing wrong. I’ve asked people for advice and they’ve told me I interview fine, I look professional, etc. I’ve asked the same thing of temp agencies and they’ve told me the same thing. (And as far as temp agencies go, they seem to have a hard time placing me even if I do call them every week.) I’ve even heard back from some places that I interviewed at that I look very professional and that I interview very well, but they always somehow decide to go with another candidate. So what the fuck am I supposed to do?! 

Well, I guess it’s because at the end of the day, you just didn’t stand out to them as being a benefit to their company or possessing of an incredibly unique skill that they would find useful. Sure you may have interviewed well, but so did the 100 or so others that that person interviewed already. The thing with this job market is that we’re not only competing with our own age group anymore. Many in our parents’ generation are finding that they’re being laid off from their jobs, and in order to support their families or to live, they need to find a job as quickly as possible. So most of them go back to school, some keep searching in their fields, while others branch out into other more successful fields. Also, we’ve got the upcoming generation to worry about as well as they enter into high school and look for the same kinds of fledgling jobs as those in our generations are.

I don’t want to sound harsh or anything, but Art is not something that’s a necessity in this job market in terms of careers. Sure we need art for things, but let’s be real here, ANYONE can pick up a pen and paper or a tablet and draw something. Knowing how to draw well is not necessarily a unique skill. A talent yes, but knowing how to draw well is not exactly going to take care of the aging population or the dwindling job market or the energy crisis. Now-a-days many of the successful artists I’ve seen are either freelance, start their own studios, know many people to be able to get into other studios, or sell their products on the Internet.  This is why things like the Occupational Outlook Handbook is so crucial to college and high school kids. It helps keep track of trends in the job market and which occupations are booming at the moment, and which ones are being cycled out. It’s a sad reality, but there will always be someone out there with more experience/talent/contacts than you, and more often than not, you always seem to compete for the same jobs.

This is why building a skill will almost always win over having a degree. In today’s world, everyone has a degree of some sort. Masters are starting to become as plentiful as Bachelors were in the early 2000s, but as the market becomes ever so saturated with degrees, they become worthless. So you have a piece of paper that says you took a certain amount of credits for a certain field of study, big whoop. Unless you can find a way to better adjust the growing numbers of Autistic kids into the decaying educational system, I don’t see why I as an employer would even give you the time of day. In today’s job market you have to really make your skills something that would be useful to the company you’re applying for.
If anything, I’d start talking to some of your fellow employees or go back to talk to some of the career counselors from Millersville. Your best bet is to network and get your name out there. Submitting applications doesn’t count as getting your name out there because more often than not they’re filed away and forgotten after the initial review if the employer didn’t see anything of value. Start volunteering at various events or locations and talk to people. Go to career and job fairs and talk to people. Doing that will benefit you way better than just sending out copies of your resume. While I can totally understand your frustration with your current predicament, I can also see where your dad’s coming from. He’s worried that you’ll just be stuck in the same loop over and over again, never being able to land that dream job in the art field because of lack of experience or not being “good enough”. Hell, that’s one of the main reasons why I quit following Digital Media my third year in college. There’s just no stable future in art unless you make it on your own. I hate to say it, but you might just have to give up on pursuing art as your career focus and instead look to other fields outside of your comfort zone and ask around about those.

I don’t want to tell you how to live your life or what you should and should not do with your career path, but I think that even you would agree that you don’t want to work in retail for the rest of your life.
