another week, another 1,000 resumes. actually this week, i slacked off. only 500 resumes. :)
so, earlier this week, i was complaining about the fact that i was returning messages but people were not returning them back. apparently, they wait until i feel so crappy that i have to crawl back into bed. i checked my messages on friday nite and i had SIX! i almost collapsed in shock.
one of the messages, was one of the calls i had returned but hadn't heard back from. well, i don't know what happened in the last couple of days, but now they sound desperate. the message is basically giving me all these options of when i can call them back and actually reach them. i am not sure i want to work at this place, but i will see what they have to offer.
another message said it was a voice from my past, mentioned a place i worked years ago, and then mentioned a job i had recently applied for. the problem was i couldn't understand the name and had to listen to the message over and over again. finally, i was like oh my god, i thought this person hated me. i know they complained about a friend of mine. and me indirectly. of course, i suspect it was bitterness as there was a boyfriend swap that had happened. i am slightly suspicious of why i am being called in. i will try and look at it positively tho. or perhaps, nobody else wanted the job. haha. it's actually a pretty cool job. it is short term temporary which is a good thing.
and then there were two messages from the employment agency. one was just general, but the other was the offer of the online retailer again. man, they must be desperate!
i have expanded my job search to alberta now. i am not sure i want to move there but there are seem to be a lot of jobs available. i applied for some simple yet high paying goverment job. a friend of mine who is also looking for work applied for some other high paying government job that is in her field and has totally done before. but jobs like that are hard to get in bc. let's see if they are easier in alberta.
and the government of canada job website has got to be the most difficult website to work. i can't even figure out what the jobs are, let alone if i am qualified for them.
i start my new job tomorrow.
