Yet another edition of the Southampton Press came out today, which is pretty much my sole lead to jobs in this area. Sent out weekly every Thursday to subscribers, it features local news and a decent classified section that, for the most part, isn’t littered with the typical “scam jobs” (ie. “Make money from home” and other jobs that direct you to a 1-800 number). Looking through it and not seeing anything that overly jumped out to me, I realized that this job search thing was hitting a dead end the way I was going about it. So, I had to try something different.
Enter the 10 Job Challenge.
This Friday, I will attempt to send off 10 resumes to ten different companies offering positions to which I should be able to perform reasonably well. They may not be interesting jobs, or jobs I would normally send a resume to, but they (obviously) have to be jobs that I would accept if given the opportunity and do my damnest to be the best I can be at the particular position.
The Press didn’t look too bad this week, so more info will come later. However, softball once again entered the picture tonight as we lost a tough game, 21-14. We gave up eight runs in the bottom of the sixth, to make a reasonable 3 run defecit into a 11 run hole, and despite getting four more runs in the top of the 7th, we took the loss.
I, however, had a damn good game at the plate, and not a horrible one in the field. I started at first tonight, my first action at first this season (making starts at 1B, 2B, and C this season). I got on base four times in four times to the plate, driving in two, scoring twice, and even stealing a base (whether it can really be determined a steal is questionable considering there was no effort made to throw me out, but I’ll take it anyway). That puts the current stats at:
G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB CS BB SO BA OBP SLG
