Since I have been out of work for two years, here is what I've been looking for:
A job in sales that is not just commission based, (most jobs I went to at the job fair today were strictly commission only) but has an hourly or salary is verrry helpful.
I can sell (just like my late father), I can write and research, and I understand the Legislative and Political process in Los Angeles, and California and Washington, DC (Lobbying is not a curse word for me, it is an aspiration).
I'd be happy working in a bookstore along Ventura Blvd or at The Grove. I would like to work for magazines, newspapers or new media (more on that on the Southland Fundraiser post). If there is a way to make money writing in the Valley (or get hired to write about what I like), I'm so in (and make a decent salary).
OK, that's what I'm looking for to keep the dream job alive.
