I really need to get back into the habit (or did I ever really start?) of posting here on a regular basis. I really think that it would be a good forum to "clear my mind" as they say. I am still VERY much unemployed, which is going to start putting a major crimp in our financial situation soon. Ray started working today at a factory job in Oxford through a temp service. It isn't the greatest pay, but it is definitely better than nothing. Hopefully we hear something form the county soon. The last I heard they were still conducting the background check. He is also sending a resume and application to Crossroads for Youth.
Myself? I had an interview this morning for a position in Fenton through Kelly. It is a definite temp position filling in for a woman while she is out on maternity leave. I also stopped at Cornerstone Staffing in Grand Blanc and submitted my resume to them. I took there tests and the woman that I talked to said that she has a position in mind fo rme. I am sure that they will have check my references first. I also heard from Liz at Option One regarding the position at SPO - she said that the person at SPO would make a decision by Friday. Even if I were to get that position, it doesn't start until after the 2 week shutdown.
One definitely positive note - I mailed out a batch of 10 resumes yesterday, and I got a call back today about one. I called him back and left him a message - going to follow up again tomorrow with him. I am hoping that something comes through really soon here - I am so tired of being laid off and I definitely am sick of the financial stress!!
Aahh! I feel better --- although I must apologize for ranting and raving - don't want to start to sound totally negative - but I definitely needed to vent! Thank you for listening and TTFN!
