i suck at applying for jobs

but i did apply for two today!
unfortunately, the resume i sent had my wes address and phone. so, unless they email me...
i did win settlers of catan tho! so, my settling-cardboard-island skills are still sharp.
and... um... i still have health insurance it turns out, for another month and a half. so i get to see every doctor one last time! woot to new glasses and contacts!
oh and i got an idea for a skirt i want to make, if i can find the right fabric. that's kind of a big if, as it also depends on me going to a store and all. we'll see.
oniondreams is doing fantastically, so y'alls should check it out... and we love comments there too... at least, i do, i guess i can't speak for my partners in crime.

  1. comments indeed do rock. that same thing happened to me with a resume i sent. i had my wes phone number from the previous year on it. but the good part is that i got the job anyway! (it's the one i have right now.) even though when they called for my phone interview ... they called dave ruder instead...
    but yeah, i would say re-send them a corrected resume. you can make up some excuse that doesn't sound too lame, right? anything's better than having them call the wrong people! read my blog (once i finish posting in it that is) to hear about some job interviews i witnessed today...

    idea! you could say "I sent you the resume with my cell phone number, but I'm currently in a place without service, so here's the number to reach me at?'

  2. "idea! you could say "I sent you the resume with my cell phone number, but I'm currently in a place without service, so here's the number to reach me at?'"

    That sounds like a good one! As long as they don't somehow catch you.. But that won't happen until someone new gets the number in 3 weeks. And of course, write it as: "..so here's the number at which you can reach me." :)
