I guess too, in the back of my mind, I'm thinking that if I have qualifications and still can't get interviewed, then I'm perfectly justified in throwing in the towel and sticking to my collage of jobs, and giving up on a career. Alternately it might, as you said, get me somewhere! Either way, one of the courses will be interesting (the other's pretty dry), and for $70 each I can't complain. After all these years at home I'm not too keen on being someone's underling (also my husband is tres bossy, so I have pretty much enough confrontation in my life). Unless the work site is great, I'm kind of second guessing having a normal job (and then I think about benefits and paid holidays, and I'm all confused again).
