Well, it’s been about four weeks since I was laid off and since then I’ve had three interviews, one cancelled interview and one job. The first interview was as a nanny for a nice family in Laguna Beach. I worked there three days and quit, it just wasn’t for me.
The next interview was for Tutoring center #1. It seemed like the interview went well last week and this week they told me they would make a decision on Monday and let me know. I really want this job because it is about seven minutes from my home! :star:
The next interview was for Tutoring center #2 and was supposed to be last Tuesday but I cancelled it. Although it was close to my school, I wasn’t excited about driving so far everyday and also the people were very unprofessional, which is why I quit my last job. So I called her and cancelled the interview because I knew that even if they offered me the job, I would have rejected it, so it was a waste of time.
The last interview was over the phone yesterday for Tutoring center #3 and it seemed to go pretty well. They pay $18.50 AN HOUR for the first two hours and $16.50 after that. Either way, that’s some pretty nice cash. However, they said that they will let me know in TWO WEEKS. I can’t wait around for that long for them to tell me that they might have a job for me, so I need to keep looking.
I’ve started looking at Receptionist jobs since that’s what I’m most familiar with, but I’m really wary about getting back into an office environment. The politics are just so exhausting and the work is really boring. Plus I would need to buy a LOT of new clothes since I have next to no business professional clothing. 🙁
Blehh I hope something comes up soon. I’m getting anxious about bills and things of that nature. Maybe I’m being too picky about jobs. I’m really worried about the hours and everything since I want to see Mike as much as possible. One nice thing about most Tutoring places is that they aren’t open on Fridays, so I can either hang out with Mike or drive up to LA and spend the weekend with Vanessa. But next quarter Mike’s school schedule will be Thursday, Friday and Saturday and he’ll have to work those days too. It’s going to be hard to see each other. 🙁
Wish me luck!
I think all of your problems will be solved if you get married.
Haaa just kidding. But really, when does Mike graduate? Isn’t his school just a couple of years? At least then you’d just have to worry about work getting in the way of being together, and that’s how your married life would be like anyway, hehe. 🙂
Receptionist/office clerk jobs are really boring. I did have to go out and buy clothes for my job over the summer, but I just got a few outfits and cycled through them, mixing and matching them. I wasn’t too concerned with attracting some HOT BOYS. 🙂 I guess you wouldn’t be either!
Anyways, good luck! Get a job where you can come visit me please. 🙂 Haha, more conditions for you.
Aww I hope everything works out OK. I really do hope you get the tutoring job with the awesome hourly rates! That would be so cool. How long have you been tutoring for, and what do you mainly tutor?
Let us know when you hear from them! Keep searching, don’t give up.
