Good luck to all you bees!

I got an email on Friday saying that the position I interviewed for a month ago was filled with another candidate (no surprise there), but that they had an even better position open that the operations manager thinks I’d be ideal for. I didn’t hear from him so I finally just stopped in their offices, and the manager of the department the job is in was totally shocked that the operations manager had emailed me since he’s not ready to even begin the hiring process for another month yet! So there is not actually a job right now and when there will be, it sounds like the dept manager wants to do full rounds of interviews again… oh and they forgot to mention it’s part time. The department manager is going to talk to the operations manager (who was out sick) and they’ll get back to me. I’m so frustrated because the email was so promising and made it sound like the job is mine if I want it. Why did the operations manager even bother emailing me in the first place, and if they are this shoddy with communication now, am I going to get anywhere if I am hired? Ugh. I am so fed up, but I really do need a job.

I hear everyone too. I’m trying to get a job in KC, so that my FH and I can NOT be long distance. Apartment places won’t take us without jobs, and jobs won’t take us without places to live! It’s SO frustrating. We’re going to have to end up having his parents on the lease with us just so we can actually live somewhere!

College is great and all, but it doesn’t mean that people still aren’t looking for experience. Um, sorry…I’ve been in school for the last 4 years…
