I went to the unemployment office today to see if I could meet with a job counselor and get any leads on restaurant jobs. What a waste of time that was. I basically signed in at the front desk, was handed a couple of books that introduced me to their office and was shown where the computers were so I could look up jobs. Well, to be fair I got to sign up for an account with CalJobs, which is really just an online job search, which I can access from any computer. I can also post my resume. I was hoping for a bit more. Alot of other people there were checking on their unemployment check status. I won't go back there anytime soon.

I will just keep on doing what I am doing which is pound the pavement and look for work the old fashioned way. Remember when that was the only way to look for work. No computers. No internet. No facebook. How did we ever survive????? I wish we would go back to the way things were. Posting resumes and applying for jobs on the internet is so impersonal. There is no room to elaborate on why we feel we are qualified for the job, that is if you are looking for work on a company website. Just click on the box - yes or no. Have you been on any of the company sites that have a 50 question psychological survey to go along with the application? Those really drive me nuts!

Tomorrow is a new day and for new possibilities!

Hope your day is fun and don't forget to laugh out loud!

xoxo Inge

So happy to have discovered your blog - I love a sense of humor! I'm kooky too - I put my humor on the cards I design and although I have different styles - the funny ones sell the fastest! Stop by and visit some time....getting ready for ANOTHER snow storm, Jennifer (oh, and planning on learning Reiki)
