Job Sharin’

My idea of Job Share is as follows.

I see a great job that I’d love to have but I don’t have the qualifications or background or the hundred other attributes that employers usually demand.

October 1,  2015 and I just found what looks like a great fob for someone

Not me I tell you

Not for me

I am an artist

You will agree

Not exactly

My cup of tea

But for someone

A Bathurst job

Paying good wages

Is  such a dream

Eureka!

An artist job

Can this be true?

Only multi-media need apply

Mixed-media artist

Just will not do

 

My dream job is in Toronto. Like any good Canadian I love Montreal. But I love Toronto even more and would be so happy to live there.

So, why do I mention it? Because I was born to share I guess. My need to share comes out of years of experience. No, I am not speaking about actual paying-job experience. I’ve had little enough of that. I mean the sort of experience one gets from years of job-hunting, groveling before gatekeepers and volunteering help wherever and whenever I have seen a real need.

So …
If I were a salesman I might tell you that you’d better jump at this job since the offer is only open for one or two more days. Sigh, how many times have we heard that one?

So … My name is Sharon (I love how that sounds like sharin’) and here is the dream job I found today.

And why would I need a job, some might ask. Don’t I already have so much to do in my lovely studio at 212 St Andrew Street in Bathurst? Yes, but like most artists I am unable to make a living by my art. While I love what I do, winter is coming, NBPower rates will be going up and the studio will be getting cold. Already I must wear a warm sweater and leg warmers. Soon I will be wearing gloves to work as I did when I rented my studio at the Doucet-Hennessy House a few years back. This year I am presented with an additional challenge. A broken leg keeps me somewhat immobile and unable to move around enough to keep warm while I am working.

We missed another deadline, George. Oh well …m
Go to Toronto? Do you think? Evenafter the warning I just received?

Oh, did you not see it?

Someone just warned me that I might die if I left Bathurst, NB.

Hooooo … Hoooo … Hilarious, George. Like that is not just one more been-there-done-that scenario? Talk about those experiences? No George, you wouldn’t believe me anyway.

Ask any homeless person how scary and dangerous is life for those who dare to venture outside the boundaries constructed for them.

Maybe ask the warriors try to help them.

On the coldest night of the year?
George, have you no heart inside that wee black and white feathered breast?
