Hi, I am still getting chemo, but would like to solidify a job before treatment is over, to lower stress. Because stress in regards to this issue is really hurting my recovery I think. The hard thing is, my desired location is a little far away. I live in CT and want to (actually, have to, for my fiancée, who is going to study) relocate to the DC/metro area.
I have called a long list of numbers and have gotten advice on other places to check out. Then I call those numbers and get advice on other numbers to call, ad nausea. I just want to learn how I can better direct my energy, in a more efficient manner. Because I feel I have expended a lot of energy in things that have turned out to be dead ends. My goal: To find a job with a non profit cancer organization in the DC area, or something to do with patient navigation or advocacy. I have a BA in sociology and don't have the money to pursue any further education at this time. How do I get the ball rolling and find people who might want to check out my resume? I am also looking for networking advice in regards to finding my desired job.
I can post my resume if someone is interested. Maybe I just need a guiding hand, someone who is willing to take a shot on a young passionate guy who might not have a huge amount of exp., but is willing to learn quickly and fight for others, in the future, who are dealing with what I am dealing with now.
