The Search

I have never enjoyed looking for a job. No one really does, do they? To me, it's akin to being the pale model on the catwalk, envious of the shiny-faced teens walking by you, confident in their stilettos as you stumble in yours. I never feel I'm good enough, despite my accomplishments, despite my education; I hate the actual interview process even more. That's the part where the photographers are snapping photos. You may look great to start, but upon further review, they realise the shiny-faced model has a bit more colour in her face than you do. It's so frustrating.

And in today's job market, at least here in the US, how does one make herself stand out as a cut above the rest? I wrestle with this every day that I reword my cover letter.
