My day was spent looking for work. It started off with me making a few trips through the city's "furniture sector" and applying at a nutrition store and a furniture & mattress clearance center. There was another furniture and mattress clearance store that I applied to last week and the salesmen there said that they liked my resume and wanted me to return on Monday. I returned there on Monday wearing a business suit and all only to have the same salesmen tell me that their manager's flight was delayed and that he would return the next day. Fair enough. I returned there the next day (yesterday) wearing the same suit only to have the salesmen tell me that the manager won't be in until Thursday because that is the day that he takes inventory. At that point, I knew that these guys were fucking with me so I thought "To hell with them" and moved on with my job hunt.
My last resume of the day was dropped off at an automotive sales park which is located just outside of the city. Unfortunately, since I did not have a car and there are no bus routes to the auto park, I had to wing it by foot. Yeah, I was walking along the side of the highway in a business suit, resume in hand, just so I can get to a damn auto park and possibly get a job interview with management.
After dropping off my resume and nearly getting whipped in the face by a dancing air-filled tube man blocking the office entrance, I made my way back to the first bus stop I could find and took the rest of the way home.
I'm only hoping now that there will be a job interview in the near future but the family and I are going on a trip to North Dakota next week and I am afraid that I will get calls for an interview during the time we are gone.
I honestly need to get a job right now because I quit my previous job due to personal and professional reasons. I'm hoping this all works out.
