Like it or not, ready or not, I said I would start looking for a job after the holidays – and I have. I’ve applied for two professional positions for which I am qualified, though I’ve not done the specific job before. One brought no response. The other was quickly turned down. I applied for a part time position at a national chain pet supply store last night. WAY over qualified, but it would be something. And has insurance. It was quite a long application and I had to do an online assessment, afterwards, that had 89 questions and was timed per each response – though you didn’t know the time. There were tons of questions about customer service, how you react to stressful situations and integrity situations. I tried to answer quickly and honestly. We’ll see. This week I also plan on transferring my teaching credentials. Then what? What do I do if I’m called? How will I be?
Ready or not, here I come.
