On The Job


I’ve decided that its time for me to return to the workforce.  I’ve been out of work for a year and the stay at home life is starting to bring me down a little. I have nothing to do once Amani is in school aside from reading and catching up on television. Money is way too tight for me to travel too far, so tvand books take me where I want to go. I’m sick of television!

I’ve brushed off my resume,updated it and starting today,I’ll  be shopping it around.  My hope is to secure a job before my government assistance program sends ne back to their job search program. Dont get me wrong, its a great resource for families on assistance looking for work. I got my kast three jobs thanks to their services.  However, if the job representatives(they look for jobs they think match your skills and set up interviews) have no interviews for you that day or you havent set up any interviews for yourself, you’re in the classroom all day.

Nothing wrong with the classroom either. There is a very capable instructor who teaches classes on interviewing,proper resumes,attire, filling out job applications,and mock interviews. WhatvI don’t like is that it is mandatory to be there from 9 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday to similate a regular work week. If, for whatever reason,you miss a day you must report back the next day with written documentation explaining your absence. Remember as a kid when you were absent from school and your mom had to send a handwritten note or doctor’s note explaining said absence? Yeah, that.

I understand that there are rules and sruff but I don’t appreciate being monitored like a child  even though I’m asking fir assistance. Its a bit demeaning. So to avoid all that,Im going to look for work that suits me and my skilss by myself. I have to say my dream job is bookseller at Barnes and Noble. This is a new year of dreams so I will be knocking on Barnes and Noble’s door. After all Matthew 7:7-8 says “ Ask,and it shall be given you; seek,and ye shall find; knock,and it shall be opened unto you: For everyone that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth,and to him that knocketh it shall be opened”. Amen,y’all!
