    I had an interview yesterday

    for a full time apprenticeship as a business admin in Children and Young People Services. (CYPS) I was interviewed by 3 women, one I already knew as she works with my Dad. Of course, I was absolutely nervous and I stuttered like mad! Part of the job description was to know...

    Daycare Center $7.50 Per Hour

    I'm a college grad. First, let me say that I know people are still looking for jobs, and that times are hard, and everyone's struggling....STILL, I need to get this off my chest.  Where I'm working is a lot of work for little pay--because they're dealing with babies and children...

    Well....Almost

    I recently was interviewed by a company to drive around from city to city and do work at various companies for them. Everything went swimmingly and I was offered the position. However due to circumstances (and me not listening to the universe) I turn it down. I kept kicking...

    Finally!

       I got the nod today.  It isn't much, but I needed a job desperately so $7.65/hr & part-time will have to do for now.  Hopefully, I can leverage this to a position in the electronics department before Christmas.  I can easily work as a cashier as I've done it before, but I...

    Unemployed for 11 months,

    1,173 interviews later I've finally got a halfway decent position. After an industry bubble last year it was impossible to find a similar job... So I get to start back at the bottom in a new industry 😌

    I was so depressed without work.

    I couldn't find the right job for me. My career went down the wrong path. But I didn't give up. I kept pressing on and somehow I got a job I never thought I'd be considered for. God has truly blessed me even though I thought all hope was lost. I'm glad I didn't give up.

    Fast Food . . . Again

    I rushed to find a new job after my husband quit his.  I hope to become a manager there and pay for my hubby to go to school.  Although fast food doesn't pay well, I enjoy doing it.  I think that this company will be a fun place to work.

    So Happy I Could Just About Die. Or Scream. Or Scream and Then Die.

    That title pretty much sums it up. I'm going to be making more money doing something I love, and I don't have to do selling of any sort and I don't have to do customer service. To hell with Rollaids. Relief is spelled J-O-B.
