I'm back in San Diego to see my son.  I have a bad cold, so I am doing lots of sleeping, but also trying to be a bit of a nag about the job search.  He knows he can't stay if he doesn't get a job, so he's taking it seriously.  However, the process overwhelms him.  To which I am basically saying "too bad", while also trying to ferret out what his fears about it are.  The applications are all on line, and they are long, with questions he isn't used to answering with the proper amount of truth and lies - like, "is it ever alright to bend the rules? Yes or no." On a job application, the answer is always a horrified "No!"  In real life, he knows about civil disobedience.  Or, " do you prefer to work alone or with people?"  Work alone?  You are antisocial and can't perform in a team atmosphere.  Work with people?  You aren't a self starting independent sort of person.

If I can encourage him to get over this he'll soon get the hang of it and it will go much easier, I'm sure.
