My last day at my last job was in Septemeber. Since then I have lazily looked for work and applied to some regular 9-to-5 jobs, but I was very distracted by the election. After volunteering six straight days to the end of the Kerry campaign, I am finally ready to turn to the job hunt with full attention and energy. Today I go out and "pound the pavement." My current goal is a an entry-level job in a restaurant. Yes, I'd like to get into food service. Why? Because it's the best way I can think of to earn a living but not have to be up early in the morning. I'm very devoted to my music and the best thing for it is to get out to the open mic's and stay visible to other musicians and see live music and play regular gigs, etc. The only drawback is that I have no restaurant experience, so I guess I'm looking for a hostessing job or a serving job that will train me. Any suggestions?
