Applying for jobs… and pulling out my hair!

I spent two hours today filling out an application for a teaching position… What could they possibly have asked that would require that much time on an application, you ask?  Well, it wasn’t so much what they asked for as it was that I simply had all the requested information scattered about my newly reorganized apartment!  DRAT!

I had to go transcript and diploma hunting, as well as address and phone number diving… All because while I remember my GPA, I don’t remember how many units I completed, and while I remember where I worked, I’ve since forgotten all their phone numbers.  (sigh) So what should have taken but a brief chunk of memory recall wound up a desperate search and rescue mission instead.

I suppose the thing to remember though is that now I have all said information in one location – a lot easier to access next time.  But as I’m sitting here printing this sucker out, I’m wondering if the next one won’t be asking all sorts of different questions that send me back to the excavation.
