Much has occurred since I have actually ‘written’:
As on July 15th:
I am officially a Registered Dietitian (RD)!
I am engaged to be married
Got laid off from one of my jobs.
I have a Masters Degree in nutrition.
Moved from Cambridge to Gloucester.
So, I am now officially: Jamie L Doherty, MS RD LDN -- Unfortunately despite all of those cool letters I finally have after my name, I have not had to opportunity to use any of them. I have been getting rather depressed lately, namely due to the job search. I have applied to literally hundreds of jobs, had a few interviews, and gotten a lot of rejection and “thanks, but no thanks” emails.
I am thankful to still have my job at MGH as a diet technician, however, since I have spent the last 6 years getting all of those credentials, I would really LOVE to use them.
Yesterday I was temped to write a long whiny post regarding my woes, however, no one wants to read that- even me! So I will chalk it up to:
· Woe is me
· Blah blah blah—the economy.
· Catch 22- no one hired you without experience but you cannot get experience without being hired… but Wait a minute! What about my years of school, internships and diet technician/ nutrition assistant positions?? Those are not experience??
Anyway… that is my story morning glory. Hoping to see more of you, dearest blogspot page J
For now, I at least have Leo to keep me company on the couch.
Jamie and Leo- signing out!
