Please Select One (1)
Ok, I’m on fire with my rants today, so one more shouldn’t hurt–I’ve already voiced my complaints about health care and housing over at one of the other blogs – so let’s keep it up, shall we?
I went over to talent.me to clean up and add to my profile there, since it seems that a lot of people are connecting with me there (which, don’t get me wrong, I love – I say as EM Forster does – ONLY CONNECT)!
Here’s Erin’s complaint: under “Status” – I am asked to select ONE of the following options:
Looking for Work
Now – I beg of you – which ONE should I pick? In theory, they ALL fit me! I have a day job, I am a business owner, I’m always looking for cool writing projects and health care work to pitch in and fix, I DO work independently on my books for the most part – AND I’m a student!
I’ll spare you from the drop down box rant on “Industry.” My point is this: why oh why do we love to slap only one label on ourselves? Don’t we all have multiple layers of passions, jobs, things we love to do, and things we are learning?
So–if you want to connect with me over at talent.me – you’re going to see “Select One” as my choice in the drop down boxes, simply because I can’t choose. And frankly, none of us should be choosing just ONE choice anymore.
That is all. Rant over.
