Pursuit of Employment in the New Millennium
I was recently subjected to the utterly exhausting pursuit of employment. At the behest of my colleagues, I
decided to share my experience -- which was educational, inspirational, and comical – to show other job seekers that there are opportunities to work anywhere.To celebrate the end of my pursuit of employment, I rented the movie The Pursuit of Happyness, which is based on Chris Gardner’s inspirational autobiography. I especially enjoyed his explanation that the Declaration of Independence states that we have the right to the pursuit of happiness, not happiness. For this article, that translates to “the right to the pursuit of employment.” The manner in which you pursue employment directly impacts the outcome. My coworkers were amazed at the number of interviews I secured in such a short period of time.
