    Ok. Today, I go out on my 37th job interview. Yep...37 just since August. Vegas is such a tough town to get a job if you're over...ummm...22. And, not blonde with fake tattas.

    If I hear the 'you're over qualified' speech again I'll scream.:why:

    In addition, nearly application is done online. I HATE not having the face-to-face interaction. You're just an email.

    I think I have a job, but have to pass the drug test.:ohmygod: Being a holiday weekend, I can't go in until tomorrow. Which, by the way, will also be interview # 38.


    I don't need to work, but found out REAL quick that staying at home and working with husband 24/7 is not all it's cracked up to be. He's hidden all the knives from me at this point.:sword: He's completely scattered brained...I'm a neat freak. It's not working well as we try to do our business together.

    Wish me well.

    Good luck Abbey!!!! 37, wow. I will have to pass this on to difficult child who thinks SHE'S had too many interviews.

    I hope this one is a YES. (I don't like the online apps either - so impersonal!)

    No...there was no partaking. I'm too much of a chicken.

    Had the interview today, which went quite well. I didn't get the 'you're over qualified' talk, but they wanted someone of a 'senior' position. It took me a minute to figure out what they were REALLY saying. What the heck???? I'm getting hired because I'm older??? They claim the oldest person there is 20. They'd like a nice 'mix' of ages. Geez...what have I got myself into.:why: This is a major bank, mind you.
