The Job Hunt: Odd jobs...of the full-time kind, are out there

Despite 13.7 million unemployed people in America, there are jobs out there somewhere. You just have to know where to look.

As one of those looking for full-time work, I often come across odd job listings, some of which I've applied for. I recently came across a weekly list by the Christian Science Monitor of unusual job openings. Here are a few of the recent openings that may still be available if you act fast:

Tenor trombone for the U.S. Army Blues Band in Fort Myer, VA., about five minutes from downtown Washington, D.C. The pay is $51,000 to $58,000 per year. An audition by invitation only is July 7.
