Ok, I have been out of work since 12/1/08. I have sent resumes, one right after another. I have followed up, but I think I have had one or two interviews in all this time. The economy here stinks, plus the are 10,000 people looking for the same job I am.
Ok, as some of you might know from my facebook, that I twisted my foot on Halloween (before happy hour ) and I heard something pop. Ended up going to Urgent Care on Sunday morning and having it x-rayed. I have a "slight fracture" and I have popped a ligament off that bone. OUCH!
Well today I was job searching on the internet and a job posting shows up that is right up my alley so I send a resume online with a cover letter. I thought, well if I ever get the call it will be in a week or so, because nobody has been in a real hurry. Usually there is a short phone interview then they call you back and set up an appt if you get that far.
The resume I sent in today online, I just got a call and they want an interview me next Wednesday! I said yes, of course, and I am praying that I can walk in there without a cane, without a "post op" boot on and that I can wear a shoe, let alone a dress shoe.
UUUUUGGGGGHHHHH! This has not been my year!!!!
Any suggestions on how I explain my foot accident and have them still consider me for the position??? Hopefully I will be able to walk somewhat normal by then!
