You know, shit like a snowstorm really puts a damper on trying to do anything useful. [ He looks away from the camera, somewhat distracted, but focuses himself back on the NV after a moment. ]

Then again, so does having your apartment bombed, I suppose. [ A small bark of a laugh. ] Anyway, I think it's obvious that if I don't want to be a useless waste of space and dead, I need a job, and pronto.

So I suppose I'm a bit spoiled. Shit, really spoiled, since it doesn't look like there's much room around here for politicians, is there? But then again, the plan is that I'll still be evicted from the towers here in a few weeks, if I can go back to the towers. If anyone wants help with that, by the way, I used to be a Civil Engineer. I kind of miss it occasionally, too.

Goodwill offers out of the way, it's not the point. The point is I'm kind of stranded, and it's putting a damper on my job hunt. I'd take this as a sign to take a break, but I don't like taking breaks. So I guess what I'm getting at is that I'm looking for a job.

If you want experience, I can list it off, but I think it's bordering on fucking useless, since I can't exactly prove it. [ He has a somewhat strained grin for the camera now, but he's mostly calm, unlike the last time he'd shown up on the NV. ] But you know, maybe knowing it would do someone some good, huh?

voice

You know, if the employers are also snowed in they're going to have a hell of a time setting up an interview.

voice

True, but I could do it with someone over the NV, or schedule it for later, if it ever stops snowing.

voice

I'm pretty sure snow is the default around here.

Wouldn't it be more innovative to abstain from pitching yourself over the NV?

What, and make myself a website instead? That tends to require initial capital.

permavid

No political office for you? That's so sad.

Apparently, they just had an election last year. I think I need to wait a bit until they swing around, and I'd prefer to not be broke in the meantime.

[voive]

Well, I don't envy you- not for the situation with the towers, nor rebuilding a career. Civil Engineering might be tough ground to crack open, for a newcomer. I don't suppose you brought along paperwork on you? But... I believe Raul Creed may know some people, up at Lion's Gate, among the regulars? That's where I'd begin, anyway.

[voive]

Paperwork? [ He laughs ]

Honestly, I'd prefer to get into my actual career, but that's going to take time, and I'm pretty sure I don't want to be living on the street in the meanwhile, you know?

[voice]

A full list would be useful. Some employers take your experience on faith, after all.

[voice]

I don't know, does Mayor of New York City, Ambassador to the United Nations, and Vice-President of the United States sound remotely like something someone would believe without some credentials behind it?

[voice]

Frankly, it would be so audacious a lie that it actually has the ring of truth about it. But I'm not even referring to specific jobs. List your accomplishments. What duties you've performed and how you have performed them.

We had been talking about advocating for a Newcomer to sit on some sort of council to the Governor... Maybe it's time to finally get that in motion.

It is unfortunate that we have not been able to get the Newcomer Office set up within the current government, as of yet. It's one of the many things we have been working on.

[Pauses.] Unfortunately, politics seem to be the one area where time is a much bigger factor then just skill.

[voice]

[ A soft laugh ] That's for sure. The time necessary is practically a full-time job before you even get the job.

[voice]

[That makes him smile, just a little.] Politics are much different back home. Most of what the NPP has come up with has been... guess work. Adapting.

I can offer you a job working with the NPP. It's not a board position, nor does it pay much. But it could get you started, and you can fill out your resume, while you look for another job as well.

I hope you find something suitable -- It's difficult to start from scratch when you have a political career.

Difficult, yes, but we all start has relative unknowns when we first run. I'd like to think that makes me a seasoned veteran at this building a career thing.

Or weary to do it all again?
