    Update on my job search...

    Hi everyone! Thought I'd give you an update on my job search in CT. The weather SUCKS and I've had to bus it all over the place (just a little vent stuck in there). I do not know how my daughter busses it wherever she goes. But I guess you get used to it.

    Anyway, I applied to MANY temp agencies. I scored 70 wpm with 100% accuracy. Did well on the computer tests. Now all I have to do is pee in a cup when I get in permanently and we'll see what we can come up with.

    I went to a job fair yesterday and applied to anything and everything I was remotely qualified for. Get this...the newspaper I worked for prior to moving to CT, laid off 25 employees about 3 weeks ago. They had a booth there!! They are looking for a full-time phone person to work from 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. manning the customer service desk. I talked to the head of HR, Iris, who recognized me immediately and said she thought I was in Michigan. I told her I was moving back and was very interested in applying for the Customer Service position. She said, "you got it!!" (not meaning I actually HAD the job) and circled my previous job on my resume. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can get my foot back in the door there.

    I'm really pooped out and planning on taking tomorrow (Friday) off and relaxing, seeing as I have to fly back to hell (Michigan) on Saturday. Then I begin packing my stuff up.

    That's the scoop, guys. I miss my kits terribly and can't wait to get home to see them (that's the ONLY reason why).

    I'll let you know if I get any job offers!!

    Till then...

    That's awesome, good for you for getting your name out there. Just like so many other things, it's a numbers game. The more you apply to, the better! Good luck!

    It sounds as if you've got a good plan of attack! I wish you the very best of luck with your job search and with the move! Moving is a pain, but to me it sounds like it is well worth the effort.

    I hope that newspaper job works out for you. It seems as if you enjoyed working for them in the past
