One of the things that drives me nuts is when I'm talking about employment searches, and I tell someone what my MA is in, and they suggest that I should work at the Smithsonian.
Really? You think that someone who moved to DC to get a degree in Museum Studies wouldn't have thought of working for the Smithsonian? I know that people mean well, but it's just so f*cking obvious. And not that easy. The Smithsonian isn't always hiring, and frequently when they are, I'm not qualified (I don't have a PhD in a subject area, which means I won't be hired as a curator, and my background's not art history, which rules out pretty much all the art museums).

That's up there with people telling me (especially during that long stretch between graduation and a job) that I should work for the UN. Except that, you know, the UN looks for people fluent in three of its six official languages, which I am not (especially since they prefer Russian or Arabic, as I recall, to accompany English and French). As you say, they mean well . . .
