Well tomorrow I start a temporary job for the week. It is a place in which I volunteered for before and just recently applied for a job. Hopefully it will up being permanent. The pay for the week is about $4 less than my previous salary but a lot more than unemployment
Thanks every one for your well wishes and prayers i really appreciate it
had the second interview that lasted about 5 mins...really. The nurse only told me what the job entailed and that was it. Its between myself and another canidate and I should hear something by the end of the day. I am so nervous that I keep checking the phone for missed calls...thanks every one for the well wishes and prayers
hi all...i need all your prayers, i am going in for a second interview tomorrow for an office assistant position at a nursing facility. please keep me in your prayers, the hours are perfect as well as the benefits
Well i had the interview yesterday at the hospital...i think it went ok. I also took a test for an officer manager's position and am just waiting for the hiring manager to call, apparently I did very well on it plus the unemployment office asked me to fax over an application. Lord I need a job like yesterday
Well I received my laptop back and it cost me $250, I guess its better than buying a new one. At least I have a ton of new programs.
I received a call yesterday for a job, I passed the first interview and then took the computer test. I am just waiting to hear how I did on that, for some reason I think I did really well.
I also received a call from the hospital for an insurance verification position. At this point it is not what I am looking for but the goal is to get my foot in the door learn what I can and move up the chain.
$10 was added to the challenge, I cooked dinner today...yes on a Friday
So keep your fingers crossed and the prayers coming I really appreciate it
I was offered a job today and had to turn it down, had she called me last week I would have accepted. But I have since registered for school, found an internship and committed to it. Some times I second guess my decisions but this one I had no problem with and I do believe that it is God's will and I have made the right decision. I also got my unemployment check today to I transferred next month's car payment to my EF
Oh and my biopsy came back with very mild dysplasia nothing to worry about so I follow up with the doc in 6months
All in all I feel really good and excited about school
Well I received my tax return and of course my mom had her hand out. I usually give her $200 but since I am not working I gave her $150. I thought she would have said don't worry about it since I wasn't working but she took it anyway.... I should have known
So I wrote the check for my car, paid a $100 on the light bill, paid my internet bill, and cell phone bill all were paid early for the month of April. I'd rather have a credit than to be scrounging around next month trying to come up with the money. I also scheduled my May payment on CC number 2. Even though some of these funds won't be deducted until next month I went ahead and deducted them from my registrar.
I was also able to sock away $900 in to my savings account (this will cover two months car payments).
I should be getting my first unemployment check of about $600 so I'll pay May's car payment and put the remainder into my savings account
I forgot I got a gig next Tuesday answering the phone for $10 an hour for eight hours. This is the place in which I may intern. I went before to do some volunteer work and the HR woman really liked me but the woman she set me up with was so rude I never went back and she sense that. So when I contacted her for an internship she was really excited and then she ask me what hours I was looking for I told her I was wasn't working so any time before 5 since classes start in the summer at 4:45 anyhow she offered me this temporary gig. hmmm you never know I may get a job out of this and this place is a government agency
This is why I simply decided to finish school. I get this call to come in for a interview yesterday so I say ok. Well an hour before our meeting the interviewer calls to cancel an reschedule. Ok fine, but an hour before our second meeting she cancels. This burns me up. Why call if you are so busy?
Anyhow the first day of the internship was ok, I'm feeling out things and go back on Thursday
I got a call on Wednesday regarding a front desk position, when I called back the girl says to me that T wants you to come in and fill out an application and meet with some one. So I say when would be a good time she says Friday any time between 8:30 and 4. So today I go in at 10:30am only to be told that the office manager was not in and if I can come in on Monday or if I wanted to fill out the application. Basically she wanted me to come back and my response, I'll fill out the application and leave it. If she wants me to come in then she will call. I left my resume again and a few letter of recommendations
On a different note, I decided to go ahead and pay my auto insurance for a six month period since I have the money and have no idea when I would find a job ($632.09)
My classmate called to tell me she was just diagnosed with Lupus, so please keep her in your prayers
Tomorrow if I don't do anything else , I am going to the library
Ok I'm in my room and my mom comes in with the mail and says to me M sent you your check. I say I know I checked this morning and it was deposited, she then says how much did he pay you? I absolutely hate when she does this, it is none of your business or anyone else for that matter how much money I make and besides I am not working so this money is going into my EF account to pay up coming bills, bottom line. But I simply said he paid me for the two weeks and left it at that
On a different note I got two hours in (studying) and actually found a couple more jobs I could apply for. Now I'm going to read "Beneath the Bruises" which is a book on domestic violence
I have decided to attend different functions in the community pertaining to health care. I figured this will give me an opportunity to get involved as well an opportunity to meet some executives and network. I was planning on doing this anyway but never got around to it, wish I had
Anyhow on the job front, nothing. I only saw two possible openings and applied for both. It amazes me you apply for a ton of positions and only get a couple of calls
I was so ticked off the person at hospital B had me waiting for over 1 hour, what if I had showed up an hour late.
First I didn't eat breakfast because I really wasn't hungry. I get there about 10 minutes early and was told that the person I thought I was meeting was running 15 minutes late due to an accident(which I later find out was a lie by the interviewer he was in a meeting), Then I'm told to allow 20 minutes and before I know it a little over an hour goes by and finally meet with this guy who pretty much ask me the same question as in the last interview and I'm there now close to two hour. If I really didn't need a job I would have left
I called hospital A where I really want to work to see if the position was filled and was told they were still interviewing but someone from within wants the position meaning 9 times out of 10 they'll get it
In the end when I left the interview I was told to allow 3 weeks plus I was starving so I went to Wendy's
Today's total job application submitted 6
I got another call today from a neurology office to come in for an interview, unfortunately I missed the call but will call first thing in the morning, the woman called me around 6pm and when I called back it was about 6:30 and the office was closed. I think she was making calls after hours
I decided to go into the library and pick up a book so that I'll have something to read since I'm home.
Tomorrow is a big day, my to do:
-Fax resume to two location
-Call Dr's office to schedule an interview
-Second interview with hospital B
-Deposit Pinecone check
-Mail application to the city of LW
-Work on paper
Well went with my dad to his rental property and I'm tired. After our pow wow I really don't want to be involved with him and his property but neither he nor my brother know what their doing
I ended up spending money today about $5 at Burger King and another $5 at the produce stand which was well worth it and $102 for the electric bill which is not due until April but since I'm not working I figured I may as well pay it while I have the money
I got a call from hospital number 2 for a second interview tomorrow which is a good sign, not the location or time slot I want but hey it's a job and since I am dying to get in the hospital after graduation, this will be great.
Oh I got $3 from Pinecone today
Well Friday I didn't submit any applications but I did go back and check to see if anything was posted that I would be interested in and there was nothing. Today however, I was able to apply for 5 positions and later I will fax my resume to three locations bringing my total to 8 for the day. I have a feeling that this is the week I would be offered a job, just something in side is telling me (since my lay) that I would be offered a job my second week of being unemployed...I hope so
Went in for an interview at a different hospital there were two different openings. One for Sunday, Monday, Tuesday from 7pm to 7am and the other per diem. I'd rather the over night shift because it's gull time with benefits. I got a call from MD that my paps was positive so she wants to do some procedure, I went ahead and scheduled for next Thursday before my insurance runs out
So my first week of being unemployed, I've applied for over 20 positions and had 4 interviews
On a different note I was so tempted today to go to Burger King twice, but I said to myself [i]you are not working[i]
Tonight I'll do my taxes and get them out, I need the money
I went to an interview today for a security company, totally different than my background. Hours are from 8-5 and is a temporary position from April-September with the possibility of full-time. They gave me the paper work for a drug test so I'm pretty sure I got the job, but I really wanted the one at the hospital near my house. I have another interview today for a per Diem position which is an on call gig at another hospital hmmmm we'll see
I met with the administrator at Plan Parenthood and I have a paid internship for about 8 weeks for a $1000 which averages out to about $15 an hour. However, it is a little less than unemployment but they'll pay me the difference so I'll still be making the same amount as if I got unemployment but it is a great opportunity for me when the summer rolls around and I need an internship
Ok tomorrow is a busy day and I have to jot down what exactly I'm doing.
First turn in the office key
second: drop off application at the city of LW
Next, hit the grocery store
Then meet with Plan Parenthood about a possible paid internship
Last thing on list, speak with adviser about graduation
Tomorrow would be the first time I spent money since my lay off, I guess that is the only best thing that came from me being let go
I received my unemployment letter which stated I was eligible for benefits ($275 weekly) this is good news because I can live off this for a while if nothing comes in and not touch my savings
Things seems to be going well and I know if it wasn't for my faith and my amazing friends, family and of course my blog family here I probably would have lost my mind
My interview went really well, we talked for an hour and M even said that I was a very strong candidate. They are looking to fill the position asap, so I am hoping that I get a call back by the end of the week. I also go another call from a different hospital and will be setting up an interview with them
But I would like to get on at the location with M the pay is about $2 less than what I was making, but they offer benefits and rather than 2 weeks vacation you get 4 weeks
Wish me luck, I have an interview tomorrow at a hospital and I am so excited. I have been wanting a job at the hospital or with the Department of Health since I can remember and have never had an interview. I've always filled out the application but never a call back. I have even research the hospital to find out how many beds, when they opened and the CEO name; in addition, to looking up some of the programs in which they offer so that I am prepared when I go in
Today was my 8th NSD, I guess the best thing about me not working is that I am not spending any money not even driving
I had to edit this post in order to add the link for free Dr.Pepper. When you go on the site the link is to the lower left
I got another lead today from my friend's son so I faxed my resume ASAP to his contact who stated to give her a few days.
Plus one of my coworkers called who has a friend over at H and he's going to talk to her, I had talked to her a few weeks ago about interning for the summer but never got her number. My co-worker said he has not heard 1 thing as to why I was let go and pretty much everyone was shocked
As I'm typing this I got a call from M at the hospital that I applied for and will meet with her tomorrow. Lord I begging you to not let me cry. I'll definitely have to practice tonight on answering my questions
I received $3 from Pinecone today as well as a few days ago, so $6 I can use for my gas.
I also got an lead on a possible paid internship with Plan Parenthood, that would be nice
Thus far today I only filled out 3 applications but since Monday I have submitted about 19 applications and this is not including Fridays' Saturday's and Sunday. I am so proud that I am getting my information out
My old friend always say "claim it and it is yours" and I have done that, by totally staying positive and knowing that God is going to give me a job in two weeks
Another friend called today and one of her son's is a manager/supervisor at company C and will put in a word for me for a position that hasn't even come up yet and her other son knows the director of company L and would give her a buzz. So with everyone looking out for me I am bound to find a job
Thanks to Fern I have been keeping a log of where and when I fill out an application. Today a total of 6. I'm hoping I can keep up the momentum, if so then I should oops would land a job soon
There was a position in the paper for a front desk person but no fax number, so I called and the girl said to come in and fill out an application at 5:30. At first I wasn't going to go because I thought there would be a ton of people there but three of my friends all said I should go so I went.
This Dr. was a jerk his only question was are you married, do you have children? First of all this is illegal and I almost said that to him. Then he stated his office hours were from 6:30 to 7pm and they worked through lunch. I'm thinking you can't force some one to work through lunch. Then he said if he offered me the job I would have to choose between school and work. Now the hours of operation posted on the door stated from 7:20am to 4pm and my classes start at 7pm
I need a job but I would not drop my class that will be over in may that I already paid for
I went to my interview today and it was going OK until she ask me about my last job and I started crying. Can you believe it? I know I won't get a call back but I hate I started crying. I just informed the interviewer that I was upset because working there was like working with family and that I was going to miss everyone there
I can't believe it
There was only on job posted today that I could possible apply for so I went ahead and did that, I have had no phone calls but I'm optimistic
