OK Universe, my Pagan friends say this works, so I'm putting my needs out to you. *

I have a lot of talents, a lot of education, and a lot of skills to offer the human race, and right now, I feel like the resources I offer are being totally wasted. It's been a month since I graduated from University. No one is taking advantage of what I have to offer, and my time here is running out.

This is what I need RIGHT NOW: A job, or some other means to pay my rent. Something short-term, just to keep me from being evicted from my apartment (this is a real danger for me right now).

Me being homeless would be a total waste of what I have to offer the world.

Longer term, I need a career, preferably employment in Canada (British Columbia or Yukon), meaningful work where I can make a positive difference in the world, doing satisfying work that I can believe in.

That's really not too much to ask, is it?

* Yes, [livejournal.com profile] teledildonix, I can hear you now: I'm engaging in "Magical Thinking." But think of this as an empirical test. And I've clearly articulated my needs, and a plan, and posted it on the WWW -- all clearly beneficial acts on my part.

And, Stranger things have happened.
Homework from my DVR class. Comments welcome!

Written for my DVR class:

Highly Intelligent gentle giant, an articulate ideasmith and lover of knowledge, information and analysis. A problem-solver and troubleshooter, specializing in synthesizing creative, imaginative and out-of-the-box solutions to observed problems. Highly individualistic, an envelope-pusher and adventurous risk-taker, fascinated with exploring the edges of consensual reality, and doing it with flair. A skilled wordsmith and published writer, able to create entertaining stories about experiences and convey complex ideas in an accessible manner. A technical communicator with a background in visual and written communications. A pioneer, trailblazing and creating ideas, organizations and informational tools for others to use. Compassionate, concerned with justice and the success of the underdog.
The 3-week workshop I am participating in at the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) has been focusing on my "dependable strengths" - those characteristics or skills I posess that make me valuable to an employer. As part of the process, I have been working with a small team of peers to identify each other's strengths.

Below is the list of my strengths, as seen by my peers in the group. These aren't my views, but others. Some of them surprise me (People skills? Responsible? Me?), but most are nice to hear from others.
