There have been 3 or 4 jobs that I've wanted so badly I could almost taste them. I re-wrote and polished those applications so much that I truly believed that they caught why I would be perfect for the job. And, well, I couldn't even get interviewed for those.
This doesn't mean I didn't try for the other applications, I did. It's just part of me suspected that if the potential employer didn't want me with them, I wouldn't have been so, well, stunned.
I swear blind I only need 2 or 3 interviews before I'll get a job in an area (the first one or two will act as ranging interviews so I can understand how they work), but I doubt I'll ever get that far here.
I know the theory is that I should broaden my job search, but I'm loathe to give up the 3.5yrs of my life and the $50,000 I just spent on my degrees to do something I don't want.
