How to Get the Job You Really Want, part I: The Basic Basics

This is good advice for everyone, whether you’re looking for a job or not!

Skyrocketing Career

We have been meeting a lot of people who are looking for work lately. Many have sought help from career and life coaches, joined career development organizations, and started success teams in order to stay focused and on track in their search for employment. Finding a good job in this economy is no easy business, and results can take several months, or sometimes a year or more.

It is important to stay the course in your job search. It is easy to get demoralized or even depressed, but there are steps that every unemployed or underemployed person really needs to take to remain sane, hopeful, and happy. Being in a good state, both mentally and physically, is really important right now, because we project what we experience in the world.

A Dream Within a Dream

Cloud Peek

By Edgar Allan Poe

Take this kiss upon the brow!

And, in parting from you now,

Thus much let me avow:

You are not wrong who deem

That my days have been a dream;

Yet if hope has flown away

In a night, or in a day,

In a vision, or in none,

Is it therefore the less gone?

All that we see or seem

Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar

Of a surf-tormented shore,

And I hold within my hand

Grains of the golden sand—

How few! yet how they creep

Through my fingers to the deep,

While I weep–while I weep!

O God! can I not grasp

Them with a tighter clasp?

O God! can I not save

One from the pitiless wave?

Is all that we see or seem

But a dream within a dream?

Gravitational Waves

(a found poem)

Cosmologists are digging
searching
subtle twist
polarized
gravitational wave
the fabric of spacetime

the universe will look a little hotter
The photons will scatter
astronomers to uncover evidence
the big bang
universe expanded
 — inflated — by at least a factor of ...

a theoretical framework
we can’t explain

would have driven such a massive expansion
born from quantum fluctuations
something incredibly fundamental
what was happening when the universe was only 10-34 seconds old

it’s crucial to remain skeptical
distorted by intervening clusters of galaxies
