Finally, some calls!!!!!

It's finally happened folks, after how many months I can't even say. I got two calls today about jobs!! The first one I got was for a helpdesk position working for a company that has a contract with Dell, it was actually the second call I got from them, a phone interview. But that's standard. They do that with everyone who applies that has even a rudimentary knowledge of computers. It's the THIRD call that I was waiting for, and it came about 30 minutes later!! They want me to come and start filling out the paperwork for the background check, and for getting fingerprinted and getting a security clearance (the contract involves working with the US Army). It doesn't mean I'm hired just yet, but it sure is a step in the right direction!!! I'm ecstatic!!

The other call I got was from Advance Auto Parts, to be a part time driver. I have an appointment tomorrow at 3 to talk with them!!! I can't believe it, TWO calls, on the same day, after all this time, all this futility. I hope to be able to accept BOTH jobs, as the helpdesk position has night shifts as well as day, and that way I could work during the day with Advance.

Granted, I'm not guaranteed anything yet, I mean I don't actually HAVE either one of these jobs, but I am so happy that finally I got some action, that SOMEONE finally called and wants to interview. I know soon though that I will be able to post that I have a job, and in the present state of the economy, I am grateful to be getting noticed. 

To anyone else out there who is unemployed, know that I feel your pain, and that there IS a light at the end of the tunnel. If it happened for me, it can happen for you too, no matter how bleak things look.


  1. Congratulations. You may not be guaranteed anything, but the first one sounds promising. Why make you come in and do all that paperwork, fingerprinting and security clearance and if they don't have a strong interest. I have a good feeling.

  2. I'm so happy for you. I know you've been waiting this for a long time.
    I agree with Mary, they wouldn't bring you in for prints and stuff if they didn't have an interest.
