Workin’ in the Coal Mine …

Well, it’s a temp job for a background check company, not a coal mine. Although coming along about 5:00 p.m., it feels rather coal minish, without the dust and the risk.

I heard from one of the jobs today; it’s not happening for me — or anyone else they interviewed this go-round. I blame it on the personality profile thingie they did. They have this fixed idea about who they want to hire and if you don’t fit, bang! None of us did. They interviewed more than 12 on the phone, 12 in person and then brought four of us back for a second interview. Now they’ve decided to start over again. I wonder who it was decided that.

Nothing on the second job — I’ve pretty much given up on that. I guess it could still happen, but I’m not holding my breath.

But today, not too long after I got the call about the first job, I got an e-mail about a telephone interview for a job I applied for weeks before.

God willing, I’ll get the right job. Hopefully, it will be soon.
