Yesterday in the midst of all my bitching and moaning about not having gotten any leads in the job search, I had sent off a bunch of online apps for Data Entry positions. I hadn’t thought about this approach before, but Stacey recommended it while we were chatting, so I figured it was worth a shot. Today I had a return e-mail waiting for me, and now I’ve got an interview set up for Friday morning at 9am.
Turns out that when Cathy (the lady reviewing the online apps) saw my resume she realized that I was somewhat over-qualified for a simple data-entry spot, but also knew that there were positions opening in the reprographics industry that I’m eminently qualified for. Sounds good to me…and hopefully my interview goes as well as the phone conversation today did.
Wish me luck!
