Subject: Help Nally Find A Job

Any advice for him would be nice, since Jeff has been trying for a new position after his layoff.

Thanks... I had an interview this past Monday, which seemed to go well. It was for a part-time position involving some accounting and data entry work. There were other candidates who were going to be interviewed; sometime next week I should find out whether I "make the cut" for the next step in the process. I'll keep you guys informed. :)

But if I do get hired for something, I will definitely let you know. 8)

Hope you get a job you at least can stand. Better yet, a job you love!  8)

Not sure if you're the squeamish sort, but if you're not you could try to become a dialysis tech. It only takes 2 months to train and then you get certified. (I know because every so often its suggested to me once I receive a kidney.) Then you go to a clinic and work.

Good for you. That field has not really been my sort of interest, though. :) Thanks for offering.

I'm primarily looking for an accounting job, or at least something involving it.

I might also want to mention, for those who don't know, that I have a bachelors degree in Liberal Arts with a minor in math, which I completed 7 years ago. And last year I furthered my education by taking the accounting program at a vocational place near my home.

I have just given an update in reply #61 of the December thread... in a nutshell, I have followed up with the person who interviewed me and I will be taking the next step in the process.

And now here's another update... earlier this week I received an email from the person who interviewed me, indicating I did well in the interview... and next week I will report there again for a screening and drugtest (a requirement) before officially starting!

By the way, this is going to be a part-time position, for only four hours a day, two days a week. So this will give me time to continue seeking other employment.

One other thing...it is a 27-mile drive from my house, but at least I don't need to go there every single day.

This is not that big a commute really.  My husband drives about 30 miles twice a day, every day

Thanks. My parents used to drive a longer distance than that each day to work.

But that's not necessarily something I'd like to do in a car that we've had for 12 years. That said, I'm having second thoughts about taking the position. However, I will take the required drugtest tomorrow morning (I set up an appointment to do that).

In fact...this week I received another offer for a full-time position closer to home, and I expressed interest in it. It's also an accounting job, and I found out that there are two other candidates interested in the position. We'll see how it goes.

I heard nothing from the person at either place today. So tomorrow morning I'm gonna call both of them and ask what the status is.

Update... this morning I went to the place in Agoura (27 miles from my house); today was originally going to be my "start day" there, but things got a little complicated. The person who interviewed me had sent a "background check" form to me in email, but for some reason I never got it, so when I drove over there this morning, I had to read it and sign it there, which I did. After that, I found out that my new "start day" is now going to be sometime after the first of next year (date to be determined, and it'll still be part time). I also explained that I have at least one other potential job offer closer to home, and I'm waiting to hear back from that person.

Perhaps I should post another update about this part-time job (the one that's 27 miles from home). Yesterday I received an email from the employer, saying that the results of my background check and drugtest have been reviewed, and everything is fine. I was also informed that my start date will now be Tuesday Jan. 19th, so I replied to the email, accepting the offer.  I will still continue to search for full time work.

And now I have been in this job for a whole month, and everything seems to be going well. I am using Quickbooks and MS Access for the tasks that I need to do... while continuing to find other work closer to home.

That might be helpful as well. Perhaps I can get a smartphone (like my mom has), so that I can access the internet on the go.  Right now I have a stupidphone. ;D

A flip-phone from AT&T. I can send and receive text messages on it, though.

Not really...unless I'm willing to pay extra $$$.

I'd rather use one with a larger display; that's why I hope to get a smartphone someday.
