Help Wanted! Looking for a Job



Yo, how goes it?

Its a beautiful Monday morning here in Boston. Wicked sunny, warm too. Apparently it is suppose to be 80 degrees tomorrow. Wow, mother nature can't wait to warm us up!

Now that the warm weather is here and my work life has calmed down (the crazy season is over), I feel its time for me to devout more time to a job search and to stop procrastinating. Because lord knows I'm a master at procrastinating. I mean, I do have good reason to....its not like I'm suffering at my current place of employment. I do get good benefits, pay isn't to bad...but I'm no longer challenged. So its time to find something new. Maybe a career change...I'm 27, no need to feel trapped in the same place you know?

My problem is...what do I want to do? I'm the product of a great liberal arts education, so I have a problem trying to figure out what I want to devout my time to. I have the following qualifications, so if you have any suggestions, send them my way!

- BA in History
- Masters degree in Public Administration
- 5 years work experience in student affairs
- Supervise 15 people, coordinate administrative functions
- Budget experience, managed a $600,000+ budget
- Hiring and firing people (firing really is not fun!)
- GLBT advocacy work

Ok, that's just some of it. I really don't want to plaster my resume here lol.

I like government, politics, health care policy, and student affairs/higher ed, and history. So you can see my dilemma, where do I go? I think when it comes to politics, I'm more for running for office.

Anyone have any good job searching web sites other than hotjobs.com and monster.com?
