Then, they get all agitated and spend money telling the sheep to "think outside the box" when they were hired because they DON'T!!!

    I started another job this month for less pay than I made 20 years ago. I am grateful to have it, and I know that after 2 years of searching, it is not a perfect job, but it is good enough for now. Every job opening has hundreds of applicants in this area, and employers can be as choosey as they want to be.
    CONGRATULATIONS, Moonpi, I know that you had been looking for a job for a long time. Maybe this one will lead to another one (with more $)

    Best of luck with the interview, Kjo5!

    Hope you get the job! Sending positive thoughts!

    I just got a new contract today (I'm a writer) so I'm employed again for the next month. Hubby (also a writer) makes good money, but his contract ends in September, and he might go to half hours then, so every little bit helps!

    I'm fairly confident I'm not going to get an offer for the job I interviewed for on Friday. :( Now I'm trying to decide to summit my resume for a job that would pay just over half as much as I make now and would only be for 3 months but is more in the area I want to work in.

    Is there any possibility at all that the job may stretch out longer or become permanent? Or lead to another position in the company? I can only imagine how frustrating this must be...

    There might be the possiblity that it could lead to another position, but it's actually an internship that's set at 450 hours.

    How did you do on your second interview, Dorothy? Hope all went well.

    CONGRATULATIONS, Kj05! I was so glad for you when I read that you got the internship. WooHoo.

    I have no idea what the above means, but good luck to all of you looking for work. I was laid off in January and said at 64, that's it. I'm retiring. Stopped at a store on my way home from SS and the woman, who had just opened, said "Wow! You retired? Do you want a part time job?" That was in April and love it - work 15-20 hours a week. 1 mile from home. Things will work out!

    The thought of job hunting terrifies me - not only are my skills rusty, but my mouth is not!

    I tend to be truthful - I've finally learned that "not saying" is not the same as lying, but --- and sometimes that goes over like a foreign object in the punch bowl. I don't do "suck up" very well.
