Well the job fair is totally over. I have some high hopes for getting some interviews from a few of these companies. One thing I know I have to do though and I had resigned myself to this fact... I'm gonna be cutting my hair and going with short hair very soon. I did ask some of the recruiters if they had a problem with men and long hair, and even if they don't have a problem with it, for the initial interview all things equal me against someone else, my long hair could be what bars me from getting the job. So... In the next few days I will just buck up and get it done, much as I'd rather not have to... :/

After the job fair I went back to my apartment and played a little Devil May Cry 4. The game is absolutely gorgeous and fun to play. I've got the entire series now as I purchased a Capcom 3pack collection of the first 3 games. I then went home to visit my parents. We had a good visit. I hadn't seen them since Christmas and had missed seeing them. We talked about the interviews and they really expressed that I should cut my hair and that was what really tipped the scales and I'm gonna do it, most likely next Tuesday. My diploma came in and part of my graduation gift from my parents was a real nice frame to put it in. So we framed the diploma and went out to get something to hang the frame. We decided on the 3M leave no mark strips, though may end up using a more traditional nail/wire to hang the frame. When it was time to leave my parents gave me stuff to take to my brother which I delivered last night after getting gas at a gas station that is right close to where his apartment is. He showed me some stuff he was working on, then I left so he could go to sleep... Then got home, chatted on the phone some and played some more DMC4.

The good thing is... I already know what kind of hairstyle I'm gonna go for when I go short. I think the style will take a little moose and teasing to pull off, but I would like to have my hair be like... this. I don't think it's very far fetched from how I kinda do my hair right now, but I'm not trying to be a "gamer geek"... I just really liked Leon's hairstyle from Resident Evil 4 (RE4). So at least you all know what I will be going to look like soon. To top it off, at some point in the near future I plan on getting LASIK and not have to wear glasses except for the 'look'.

So any thoughts on the "new look" I'm going for?

Oh... and new icon! :P
I dropped off my resume at many places yesterday at the job fair. A few would be with insurance companies as a claims rep. It would pay quite decently and at least it isn't a sales job with commission and whatnot. The two coolest jobs in my opinion would be a marketing position, some of which would be coming up with writing stuff about home automation products for the general public and not make things "technical" for them. Another would be a project manager for a company that does market research. I am feeling very hopeful that at least one of these jobs will pan out and there are a lot of advancement opportunities with any and all of those jobs.

Oh and I want to thank those who have already given me some valentines from my previous post. *hugs*

I will be going to the second job fair thing today and see if there are different companies, if so I'll stay around. If they are the same then no point in staying there. I got me some Devil May Cry 4 to pick up and have fun demon slaying later... ;)
