Re: The Work Thread

Did I ever mention I'm taking 3 state civil servant tests?  One for general project managers, one for management analysis, and one for networking/systems.  Not until the end of the month, though.  I'll have to remember to study.   (I thought I was done with studying!  lol )

Re: The Work Thread

I really don't like job fairs; having to sell yourself to 10 companies in a row while they all ask the same questions.  But they occasionally have some neat things as giveaways.  (no, not really, it's usually pens, though once a company gave out one of those super bouncy balls- drove Vampy nuts for 2 days with it.  Somehow it disappeared)

And yes, I'm nervous and nattering on because I have no other place to natter on at!  Natter natter natter!  One of those times I wish I could still drink.

Re: The Work Thread

Good luck. Now go out there and sell yourself!

And don't forget the free candy  smile

Re: The Work Thread

Thanks guys.  Nothing great, but I did get out some more resumes.  big_smile
Then came home and slept for 4 hours!  lol

Re: The Work Thread

Hmm, been a while.  Had some email contact recently, setting up a phone call for next week.

And I have my first state civil test next Wednesday.  Perhaps things may turn around?  "Perhaps," says Bobo as he strokes his curly mustache.

Re: The Work Thread

Ahh, I need to channel my zen.

Got an email last night from a company I was talking with, asking me to come in for an interview for a position.  Emailed them back this morning with my availability.  Haven't heard back yet.

I rewrote the email about 3 times.  I had Vampy look at it.  I have re-looked at it several times to see if I said anything stupid.  I'm thinking paranoid, I know it, can't help it.

Re: The Work Thread

Woo hoo!  Next up, on-site interview with the hiring manager,  (Yes, I'll make sure I wear pants for that one, Swollen) next week.

Going to be interesting; it's a newly created position and no one really knows what it all entails, including the manager from what I gathered.  But why not?  I am the Monkey Lord of Chaos, you know.  lol

Re: The Work Thread

This is kind of weird.

My last 2 civil tests (composing of 7 jobs total), I came in anywhere between 1st and 12th in test takers within the my local 6 counties.  Heckuva spread, you think?  The only consistent thing was one county spanked me like a bad puppy in every category, and I spanked another county in every category.

Re: The Work Thread

Hey kiddies,
May I make a request for prayers, pentagrams, good thoughts, voodoo hoodoo, or whatever you do as I have my final interview in 10 hours?  Pretty please?
