Got a call from the temp agency this morning—they’ve got a two-week assignment near the end of the month, if I’m available.
Oh yeah, I’m available.
It’s something at the post office, not an accounting job, but it will give me a) a paycheck and b) some current employment to put on my résumé. I suspect the ten-year-gap in my work history is hurting my chances as much as my lack of experience.
They’re sending me some forms and the location of their approved drug testing company. Yeah, I’ll have to get drug testing. Passing it won’t be a problem—I’m not even on birth control any more—but it’s still demeaning. But I’ll put up with it for the same reason anyone else does: because I need the work.
