1. The fact that my company has filed bankruptcy for the second time in five years
2. The fact that the Teamsters have authorized a strike
3. The fact that I am tired of falling asleep before 7:00 PM
4. The fact that I really, really (really) miss weekends more than I thought I would
have me back in the job market. Job searching is exhausting, most often discouraging, sometimes exciting and usually monotonous. Today, I came across a posting that was too good not to apply for. The posting read like this:
Swedish Speaking Baker
We need a swedish speaking baker who would be able to read swedish recipes for part time baking. Please respond through email. Thank you.
