10 Jobs I Won’t Take

So I’ll be graduating on June 13th with an MLIS (Master of Library and Information Science) and will have to find a job. Being a sprightly young man (though not this sprightly), I’m sure I can do many things. I won’t, however, be answering any of these ads:

1) Product Tester at Wasabi Factory

2) Parking Enforcement Officer at Muscle Beach

3) Animal Trainer at Flea Circus

4) Head of Complaint Department at the Department of Motor Vehicles

5) Stockbroker (just saying…)

6) Pirate Impersonator on cruise ship off Somalian coast

7) Jelly Bean Counter in Jar Full of Jelly Beans Store (“Oh no, I lost count…Empty it out again, Bubba.”)

8) Prison Comedian

9) Wetter of moist towelettes

10) Skull used by Shakespearean actor in production of Hamlet

…and for good luck, 11) Saddle Maker in two horse town

    I’m actually working in my college’s library this summer.

    The pay is lame, and some of the work is tedious and dull, but I love when I work the front counter and get to read for long stretches of time. I’m probably going to get through more books this summer than in the past 5 years combined.

    Congrats on the degree. Are the job prospects good for your degree-type?

    The market is pretty slow right now because budgets for City departments are getting cut, and libraries are typically part of municipal budgets.
