I’ve been looking for a career change for sometime now. I thought with my degree and work history that it would be a lot more simple than it has been thus far. To be completely honest I’m not sure how long that I’ll be able to work. My ailments are multiplying with no answers yet as to what to do about them.
I do still have a couple of applications out that I would like to be able to see to fruition. I recently found out that I was passed over for a national park job that I really would have liked to have had a chance of getting. Other positions failed as well but I’ll continue on for a time and see what happens.
I’ve even applied for a job that I know that I’m qualified for but don’t really want to do. Paradoxical, you might think, but when I became disabled it was from a job just like the one that I had just applied to. My disabilities are both physical and mental in nature and my fairly recent surgery has added a new element in the form of added pain plus incontinence on occasion. Both are more than a nuisance. I hate wearing pads in order to go to work or just to go out.
Next I’d like to talk about labor law a little bit. I’m no expert by any means but I still feel the need to get it out. First, it’s against the law to discriminate against those with a disability but I haven’t heard how one can ascertain if such discrimination has occurred. For example, if one applies for a position but doesn’t get it, how can it be learned about the qualifications of the winning bidder? Laws are worthless without some way to investigate possible issues. I am having trouble wrapping my head around this issue.
Sorry about the ramble. This has been in me for some time and I had to get it out.
