I had the best job in the world - a zookeeper, but was fired because I don't fit in with the team. I feel I was put on earth to look after animals but there is no other zoo in the area and even if I can get into another zoo who's saying the same thing wont happen again.
I have been told many times that I should try selling my painting but I don't think that would ever make much money if any. So I am just trying to work out what to do.
Joel, you've got "nothing to lose" by trying to get more job experience as a zoo keeper somewhere else if you can find that. Hopefully, you learn more as you go along with each year and each experience that comes your way. Also, not every place of institution has a union you can join. Some unions are helpful, and some aren't. I hope this helps.
