After going over my application with John, something I wish I had done before I entered it, I have been informed of some mistakes I have made. The biggest one being that I did not explain my years of absence from the work force. John said that I should have put Home Maker as my last job, at least in a way of explanation. Oh well, live and learn. I suppose it doesn’t mean that I won’t get the job. John, half jokingly said, maybe they will be curious enough to know where I have been to call me in.
Anyway, it was only my first application, so as I said, live and learn. There will be others I am sure. I would still love to get this job though. The idea of even having a job at this point makes me feel happy.
A couple of other things I might want to put on there is the book keeping and pay roll I did for years at our own family business. I thought if I didn’t get a pay check, it didn’t count. Why shouldn’t it count?
