Sometimes my still being unemployed depresses me greatly (Although my periods of depression typically last no more than thirty minutes.)

The biggest problem in my job-hunting woes is the fact that the type of job I want varies greatly from what I have training in. I want to be involved in IT or programming, but I don’t have a lot of the skills necessary to succeed in those fields. I will probably always regret not shifting to Computer Science or even Computer Engineering early on in college. If I had I would’ve probably had a much easier time.

In any case, I’m going for an interview with Texas instruments on Friday. The job is not an optimum one for me — I don’t really want to work as a product engineer although I am qualified. (Heck the chances of my being accepted are probably too small for me to even consider — I have the requirements but I’m sure a lot more qualified people will be applying. I’ll have to wow ‘em with my incorrigible attitude). But the pay is probably good, it involves overseas training and if I get accepted it’ll mean I have something to do in the meantime as I try to earn the skills needed for a job that I _would_ enjoy.

Hopefully the TI guys never read this. O_o
