I know its not just me

This would be my first ever post in my very own blog. Few of my friends who has been bloggers for a while has been asking me when am i gonna join the rest of the world bloggers. So here i am.
What should i write first. The title says, "i know its not just me". Im actually talking about getting a job here in sunny Southern California. Hah! If u think its easy, please do think again .. and again. Work experience is not as useful (or is not as powerful?) as contact. Of course luck has got its hand in it too but when you already have more than 10 years of working experience with big companies and have worked with the who's who in the industry, wont it get to you if you cant even get that damn admin position????? maybe it means that im over qualified. (if there is such a thing!). bruised ego? You damn right my ego is bruised!! its so bruised i think my skin is now the colour of purple. sometimes i wonder if i should just say that iv never worked before? but then again, they might tell me that they want somebody with some sort of working experience. sigh.
