The age of chivalry is gone. That of sophisters, economists and calculators has succeeded.

...trepidation...

Well, I've finally done it.... I've quit my 'temporary' job! Yes, I am about to launch myself, like a confused minke whale, onto the silty shores of the full-time job-hunt. It worked for Wide (after the better part of a year), so I'm convinced the brazen terror of a dwindling bank account should be a good incentive to write more than two applications a month...
So, I'm going to treat this as a job. Get up early, get cracking, investigate contacts, telephone, cold call, smear attractive posters of myself across the lobbies of any development or lobbying organisation I can locate, call in all my favours. I'm even going to set myself targets- instead of 2 applications a month, I'll have at least two interviews. I might even go for training as to how not to frighten interview panels and yet provide a good soup├žon of character. Mmmhmmm.

I really can't fail- 2007 is going to have to up the ante: another year in limbo (employment wise) would not be good for my soul...
