Throwing in the towel
I've come to realize that, as long as I'm living in Buffalo, I am never going to get a full-time librarian job. I've had my MLS for 4 years, and all I have to show for it is a series of part-time or temp positions. My husband has a well-paying job, but it's not one that he likes and he's looking to get a new job. That means he might be starting from the bottom and making less money, so I'm going to need to contribute more to the household. For various reasons (long story) we won't be able to leave the Buffalo area for about 2 years, and I don't want to have to wait that long to get a "real" job. Is there anyone here who doesn't work in libraries anymore, and was able to translate their skills into a job where the competition isn't so fierce? I'm tired of feeling like a leech who has to be supported by her husband's salary.
