Shit and Other Such Matters

I've been told by an industry contact that it will be hard to get a job with them, and I think they were my #1.

Shit shit shit!!! Poop on a platter!

Oh yeah, and crap. Crap crap crap!!!

Just my luck to be graduating during a shitty-ass downturn! Craptastic! Craptacular! I am so happy. Right.

what kind of industry are you looking into? My uncle does comp sci/engineering-ish stuff...

Oh god...I know your frustration. Better half is currently looking for a post-doc in our current BigCity while I finish up my PhD...it's a real sciency sort of place with plenty of labs so I figured I'd just join up with my favorite advisory committee member.

But she just told me that while she'd love to have me, it would be financially irresponsible of her to offer me a position right now - grants are hard to come by and she's stressing about how to keep the people she's got already. Ugh. Bad timing all around. Good luck!

Yeah, same - all my assumptions about finding employment, places I was basically counting on, are out the window! Time to scramble for massive country-wide search. Good luck to you and Better Half. :)
