To My Future Employers:

The big deal in job hunting these days is that everyone gets Googled. Fortunately for me, when my real name is Googled, neither this website nor my myspace page is found. Isn't it great to be a rollergirl and have an alias? Although it's not that hard to link my real name with my derby name, I'm going to assume that most people just don't have the time. With that said, here's what this post is really about...

My next employer should refrain from pressuring me to work 50+ hours a week. As you can see from this blog, I have a rather demanding personal life that doesn't allow me to work long hours. I have no problem with working through lunch or staying 30 minutes late or coming in every once in a while on a Saturday to help out with student orientations, but when my hours are posted on the door of the library and on the library website and on countless pieces of library propaganda, don't expect me to greatly deviate from them. Doing so tends to cause confusion for everyone involved. I feel that my devotion to my job when I am here (the same devotion that makes me skip lunch and stay late and come in for special functions) is sufficient enough for a "salaried" employee. So there, you pompous administrators, and if I never work as a professional again, at least I'll still have my health and my happiness.
