On 8/30/12 I attended a job fair at the Dearborn Double Tree hotel in Dearborn, Michigan USA.
The job fair was a big let down. Most of the jobs were for sales or for $10 max pay and would not utilize my experience or any of my degrees. Although, I did ask the security guard table if I would get to carry a weapon. Sadly, they said no.
After wading through the sad professionals in their 40s and up who had come in search of a good career also and seemed displaced by former professions, I sat down at a table and sketched people secretly. I mean, well, it wasn’t much of a secret. I was openly drawing for a half hour, looking right at people. Most people didn’t even notice me. One man noticed me though and he wanted me to draw him, but the chance escaped me as he was leaving to get interviewed for some sales position.
