It’s been a while since I’ve posted here. Years, I think.
Right now, I’m sitting up late at night. I can’t sleep as I’m pondering my future. It looks bleak. I can’t seem to catch a break.
I’m still working in Public Parks. I have been since May 27th 2013. At times I’ve enjoyed what I have been doing. But I think those days are become fewer and further between as each moment passes.
For a while, I couldn’t get an interview to save my life, even for positions that I’m certainly way overqualified for. Maintenance? Nope. I’ve applied for Park Ranger positions six times, even with letters of recommendation from Ranger management while working for their same boss. But not even so much as an e-mail, let alone an invite for an interview.
Here at DSA, at least I’m being interviewed. The other day, I was passed over once again for a Lead Parks Ambassador position that I’m way overqualified for. The person they hired was someone that I’d trained.
Once again, I get to see other people around me moving up into better positions. It’s starting to look like I’m never going to have my day. Forever stuck in my entry level position.
