What next?

I'm beginning to feel like my recently-earned graduate degree is about as marketable as Herr Reiche's arboreal elephant concept, above. Thankfully, my job search efforts are less desperate than they would be if I didn't currently have a job that I'm trying to flee. Nevertheless, I am trying really, really hard to not even entertain, let alone invite, the possibility that I might be stuck in this same job 11 months from now. So far, though, my combined experience and education has only brought opportunities for unpaid committee work. That looks nice on my resume, but it doesn't help pay down the credit card balance . . .

At least being finished with school means I have time to work a second job, if it comes to that. *sigh*
