I have two good leads for part-time positions; resume and cover letter are ready to go for one, not necessary for the other. The pay isn't that great, but will take what I can get at this point; never know what can come from any position. I did e-mail another letter early Sunday morning, still waiting on a response. Need to contact some of the places I have applications at, remind the management that I am still interested. Two places, I may send a copy of my resume and a letter of interest, both applications were filled at the kiosks and I have not received any interview requests. I dislike the idea of no face-to-face when turning in a application; I can't get a feel for person I may be talking to at a later time. (I also can't stand the online applications, some of them are extremely long. Last thing I want to do is spend an hour filling out an application).
I am still debating whether to join monster.com and/or hotjobs.com; I currently am using CareerBuilders (have been a member for 2-3 years) and wichitahelpwanted.com (just joined this past week). My thinking is the more exposure, the better.
I have heard back the local LIONS club and working to set up an appointment to meet. If I'm accepted they will pay for an eye exam and $50 towards glasses at Lenscrafter. Depending on the frame choices and whether they can do my Rx for that price, I may use Zenni instead. I definitely will for a second pair as they have a frame style I like for under $30. Wal*Mart is definitely out $80 for eye exam, frames would be about $175 if not more.
Hospital paperwork is done!! With the arrival of my package from PA I have access to my tax information, which is what I was waiting for. (I also need to send similar information to the mental health facility I am using for my care of my Bipolar.) Hopefully with the hospital help I will be able to get some assistance until I am able to secure a job.
Have been able to take some time to send some personal letters out also. It's a bit strange sending "snail-mail" letters but it's been a fun. Until I have access to the internet at my living space, it will have to do.
