Having worked in the real world quite a bit, I believe in the power of networking and contacts, as well as just being an attractive candidate for employment with a great resume. Maybe it is because I am older, not straight out of college, and have some perspective. I am working with the options I have and trying to make the best decision for me based on them. But I do appreciate all of your thoughts and comments. They are all useful.
No one is saying it can't be done. We're just saying you can't expect it to be easy.
There's a lot of expecting it to be easy going around these days. You sound like you don't have it, which is going to be a big, big help to you in life.
I think you are quite right.
