[ Look! Up on the screen! It's ... a youngish, nondescript white dude! Now how about that. ]

All right, I hate to live the cliché, but I've come to realize that while I'm here, for however long I'm here, I have ... responsibilities I need to live up to. Now, I'm not knocking temp work -- I know I'm lucky to have even that much going for me in this economy, as an imPort -- but it's not panning out into anything long-term, and long term is what I need.

[ He spreads his arms mock dramatically. ] And so I come to you, Cityzens, invisible hat in hand! Looking for any and all leads into paid employment of indefinite duration.

As far as the all-important yet completely unverifiable job experience goes, I've spent most of my adult life as a photographer working for a newspaper called The Daily Bugle, if that means anything. I got my Bachelor's in Physics at a university that doesn't exist here, and have a couple years of post-grad biochem work under my belt. I've taught science at both the high school and undergrad levels.

I can also juggle, knit, and work a sewing machine, but somehow I'm thinking those aren't quite as much in demand as far as job skills go. I hope not, anyway.

So there you have it, Network. Hit me!

[ He reaches out to turn off the communicator, then pauses and points at the screen. ]

And for those of you not familiar with 21st century American vernacular, that does not mean you should actually track me down and punch me.

Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Can't be overly concerned at the moment!

Why couldn't it be both? [says the triple-doctorate]
Edward Nygma: Reason.

I'm sure, were it both, he'd have already specified it.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Upside-down smile!

It's possible that he may be modest.
Edward Nygma: I haz a point.

On a verbalized resume? Modesty would be a stupid thing.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Might I just add...
bluepurrymuffin on March 10th, 2011 05:39 am (UTC)
Possibly, unless he wanted to avoid offers in that field.
Edward Nygma: I haz a point.

The guy has tried Taco Bell. It seems illogical for him to shy away from medicinal avenues if he's that desperate.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Well this is pleasant.
bluepurrymuffin on March 10th, 2011 05:45 am (UTC)
Well, you never know. If he had a particularly unpleasant experience he didn't wish by any means to be reminded of, it's entirely possible!
Edward Nygma: In conclusion: I am right.

You're of the mindframe that medical training is limited to one field? That's a bit of a fallacy, don't you think? You have no idea what a potential employer could be looking for, in terms of experience, and to sever one is in itself ludicrous. Purposefully limiting oneself? The experience alone, hypothetically, is enough to open new doors that aren't literally tied to medicine.

You're arguing for the sake of arguing, and I can't help but wonder why.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: How very interesting...

[Personal amusement.]

However, as a medical doctor myself, I've known many colleagues who have, for one reason or another, felt a need to put the business behind them for a time. Perhaps you'd find such a decision illogical, but logic simply has no place in certain matters

And, after all, there can at times be no uncertain amount of stigma directed at a doctor who will not practice.
