...............I applied for a job. On a whim the other day I applied for a library card online. I used to love going to the library but got away from it for one reason or another. So, yesterday the card comes and in the info that came with it there was a sentence down at the bottom that said, "Interested in working in the Library? We are always looking for good people, check our website out for openings." So I did and there is an opening in the very library here for a page. I read the qualifications and decided that everything I was trained in as far as retail was concerned, I could relate to this position. I just had to find a way to point that out to them.
So I put together the application package which included an application from the site, a resume and a cover letter. I took the opportunity to explain to them in the cover letter why I am the perfect candidate for their job and delivered it to them today. They will call back for interviews. This is only a part time job but I am desperate and will take anything at this point, plus I really would love to work in a library and maybe it would lead to full time. You never know. AND......I checked out two books. Which is a good thing, considering I'm back into reading and I don't have a job to afford to buy them.
