Looking for a job

I continue to look for a job. Things aren’t looking good right now, at least not around here. There seems to be quite a few listings for two general types of employment here. There is either the really low level, entry level kind of job (deli clerk, petco associate, etc.) or the really specialized, highly technical jobs (pashto linguist, intelligence analyst, engineers, etc.) but nothing in between. As a jack-of-all-trades, my lack of specialization is hurting me right now. I do feel that I can be really useful to some company, perhaps in a variety of positions, but I can’t seem to find a good fit. I know, things are tough all over, but this is the longest I’ve ever been without work in my adult life.

Part of that is due to my health situation. I’m still trying to figure out what’s up with me and what it means long term. I feel kind of odd looking for jobs when I’m not really sure what job I can actually do. Hopefully that part will be cleared up before the economy swings back around…
