The job hunt so far is going at a snail’s pace. There are not a lot of opportunities to get hired, and of the ones that do exist, I don’t qualify for most of them.
I have applied by phone to a company that does surveys. I have left a message requesting a job interview, but have received no reply.
I also applied online for a job as a billing clerk at a trucking company; I have received no response from them.
My most recent application is to a discount retailer that is expanding locally. There is an excellent chance of being hired even with no prior retail experience. We shall see how it goes.
