I Already Talked To The HR Guy, Will He Think I'm A Doofus If I Re-Apply?

I applied for a job online at a really large company, got as far as a phone screen from someone from their HR department, but never got called for an interview. The job has just been reposted. Do I apply again? Do I call the HR person I spoke with back? Do I just let it go? [more inside]

Where do music festival vendors find good help?

Asking for my 22 year old daughter who would like to spend the summer (or longer) working at music festivals. She has service industry experience, including restaurant work, and she's been to several festivals over the past few years, so she's familiar with and comfortable with the living conditions. She's going to a Summer Camp (Chillicothe, IL) in a couple of weeks and will talk to vendors there. In the meantime, where should she be looking?

CFA worth it for a role in Real Estate Investment?

Need a kick in the ass for work direction.

I am wanting to get a job in Indianapolis where I am from. My wife and I have lived in my current city for 4 years and have not managed to make any close friends and am not finding much to do here. I am average at my job IMO where others could do much better and have more passion (librarian) (i.e. I don't deserve this job...but that is another story...). Question: trying to figure out what I might be better at and leave library service altogether to more qualified people and find some unrelated job that I can at least make 35 K to start paying off student loan. Is this asking for too much in today's job climate? I am 41 with the M.L.S. if that helps clarify and have solid work performance and have no qualms about ever being a librarian or anything like it again.
