Desperately Seeking Employment


Someone I know had to spend a whole lot of time reviewing online job application sites while trying to find many candidates for a certain hourly part time job. What follows are answers to the request "Tell Us A Little About Yourself". Some are poignant, some are disturbing, and some are crushingly sad as reflections of the state of the job market in America right now. All display a wild range of literary style from grammatically indecipherable to waaaaay too much information. I've changed names and places to protect the innocent. Enjoy?
