One wants me to outright lie on my resume'. Ummm, nope.

Had a wonderful interview with a man yesterday...I was so excited. My skills are just what he needs and the environment is perfect for me. Unfortunately, it seems that the recruiter failed to mention that it's a part-time position. I need a full-time paycheck. Sadcryface

Still no word on when my job ends.

I have another interview in the morning but after talking to the recruiter for that one I already know it's not the place for me. UGH! I will go, just in case I am wrong about that but my hopes aren't high. And it's good to practice my interviewing skills.

I guess I will go pout now.

I could tell you stories that would make you cry. I hate job hunting. I hate interviews. Blarg!

Would it not be worthwhile to take the job anyway - any job is better than none? And there might be a possibility of going full time?

He was going to go over some figures to see if he could swing a full time position...I haven't abandoned all hope. Undecided

Maine...they are most likely from Maine... it is more neighborly, don't lose your shit over it...we find it fun to slow things down. Evil_monster

In all likelyhood they have rarely seen stop signs that are not four way, are used to country driving on unlit streets with no signs at all on roads that are weather beaten and have different names in different towns (according to local legend) but have no signs posted. They drive 70 MPH till they see some little town and assume it to be a four way stop and 35MPH. They have accomodated by stopping any place where some motherfucker could smash into them...they do not trust other people to stop...

Ah, rural drivingHeart

RE: Small things that make you frown
My dog Ty is a border collie. I like training dogs, and he was just so happy to learn. He was in agility and was so brilliant-just an amazing dog...now he is old and confused and mostly blind and sore from arthritis...still my sweet old guy and still happy, but he gets up to pee now at 3 am and forgets why he goes outside, and this once intelligent dog is not able to remember much at all-he is in his decline and I miss him already.Sadcryface2Blush

I think the head hunters get a commission as a percentage of your annual pay. If you take the part time position the employer's obligation ends with the commission based on your part time pay. Then you can work on turning it into a full time position and save the boss some cash.

I called the recruiter today and he said they are negotiating lower fees to try to get me on full time. I am cautiously optimistic. Smile
