QOTD 54: I could live my life a lot better than I think I am. I guess that’s why they call me….

The Working Man. One of the cool things about the SCSA podcast is that he seems eternally grateful for the fact he’s not a ‘working man’ and appreciates every single listener who busts their proverbial hump driving trucks, digging ditches, and so on. I also saw this video by Mike Rowe about how we don’t appreciate manual laborers as much as we should:

Are you a workin’ man? Hard labor or white collar? Are you satisfied, or do you feel a job should satisfy you? Have you ever had to hire someone? What do you think makes for a great job candidate?

I ask because there is a broadcasters job fair tomorrow and I’m pretty serious about going – but am nervous. My current job pays most of the bills, is relatively low-key (Shit I’m writing this *at* work), but it doesn’t satiate the soul in a way I think a creative job would.

So I’m torn – I doubt I’ll get a job offer that will match what I’m making here, and I’m not sure if I want to toss overboard this gig for something a little uncertain. That’s of course, implying a broadcaster wants to hire me.
