The Job Search Process

John's new job search wouldn't be taking place under the favorable auspices that had surrounded his job search as a graduating senior in geology. He and his friends in engineering, hotel administration, and business had been fortunate then that the economics in their fields produced interviewers bidding for the best of their graduation class. His friends in the social sciences and humanities, on the other hand, had not been so warmly greeted for twenty years, and so they had to tackle the more complicated job search immediately out of college. Now John would have to concentrate as his friends with English and history majors had done from their first search.

John felt fortunate he still had an income to pay the bills while trying to square his values with his job description. As an older and a wiser searcher, he knew this process would take time. His friend Cheryl, an accountant, searched on her own for a year before finding a job in her home state that allowed her to make the jump into management. Although she had sent out seventy-five impeccable letters and résumés, her search was prolonged by applying to companies that had not advertised positions. John knew he could expect a shorter search time since there was still some movement in his own discipline.
