I actually had jobs before I was a mom. Shocking, I know.
Once I got pregnant with Jayce, we then decided that I would stay home with the baby. At least for awhile. And the rest they say, is history.
But, way back in the day, I worked retail. I even went to college.
For a few Christmas seasons, I worked seasonal jobs. When we only had one kid and my husband's schedule was a little more predictable.
Then we had more kids and hubby got a different job.
But, for the last few Christmas seasons, I've put in applications anywhere and everywhere. The extra money would be nice but it would be a headache trying to fit everything into an already hectic life.
We figured if it was meant for me to work, I'd get an offer.
I've never even received a phone call. Nothing. Nada. Zip.
I figured I just can't compete with young people who don't have huge gaps in their resumes.
The other night, I once again filled out apps., online.
The next day, I got a call! Woo-hoo!!
The lady asked me if I could type at least 25 w.p.m with 80% accuracy.
Yes! ( Thank you blogging!)
Could I run a multi-lined phone?
Would I be able to give good customer service?
Yes! (I'm really getting my hopes up at this point)
Could I work 12 a.m. to 7 a.m.?
Ummm.... NO! (which is why I wrote I wanted to work evenings on my app!)
Oh well. At least I got a call.
