Rant, Then Pictures!



I'm very glad I'll be leaving for school in just over a week, and not have to think about looking for a job right now. Even more glad that on the back end of school I'll be more desirable to employ. Lately I've been getting very annoyed however, and it goes back to what I was talking about before.

Even though I'm not actively searching out a position right now, I still browse craigslist and Canada Job Bank daily to see what's being posted, in case I miss any possible opportunities. Well, there are 2 companies who continue to pop up in these ads. One of them is a company I had an interview at. They never got back to me to say why I didn't get the job, but the general feeling (based on a comment by the man I was interviewing with) was that it was because I was still a mid level apprentice. What grinds my gears though, is that they still continue to post for a position there, and the ad states that they want someone with 2 years to less than 3 years experience. How is it possible to have a journeyman with 2 years to less than 3 years experience? I have 5 years experience so far. Aggravating, to say the least. I feel like applying there when I'm done school, then ignoring them. Immature? Yes. Pics!


These are a couple of the shots I got while we were at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle.

He is their favourite guy. You can see it in their faces.


 Snow leopard cub, can't remember how old they were, but this one was hunting his sibling who had the soccer ball.


Bengal Tiger.

  1. You reminded me why I didn't have a job for awhile after school. People wanted experience, but how can you gain experience when no one is going to hire you without it.

    And big kitties! lol

    Also, you should totally apply then ignore them. And then do it again. xD

  7. You wouldn't be the first person to re-apply just to give them the shaft! Feed them to the snow leopards. Which are awesome.
