It's Just a Thought....

I know it's been a while but after quitting my job, I have found lots of things to do other than sitting in front of a computer all day long.

Today I had an interview with a job placement agency. I was told that I am over qualified, had too many years experience and there are no positions open that she could offer. I gave her a minimum amount that I would accept for salary and that sunk my ship even deeper....Oh, but according to the agent, I have excellent interviewing skills...go figure and no jobs are available - hahahaha what a joke!

The job I was at had me feeling worthless, not needed....now, I feel like I've hit rock bottom....excuse me miss you have a great resume and qualifications however, we are unable to assist you at this time.

I relayed all this to hubby and ended with the dreaded what if question. His answer was...you might have to apply at Wal-Mart. Nothing is wrong with the people who takes care of us in the retail business....it's just that I haven't done something like that in over 20 years...I'm not saying that I'm better than that it's just that once you've established a career you kind of expect to stay in that field. Even if you do have to make a stand and say enough...I'm not going to be a door mat any more!

On a positive note....I have excellent interviewing skills
