After I made the first of three necessary phone calls this morning, the phone stopped working. Arrrgh! It's happened before, and it took two days before we got a dial tone again. We thought it must be the phone line, the lady upstairs was having the same problem and the phone company was investigating it for us as well.
What I don't understand is why I can get online right now. Could it be that just our telephone itself is screwed up.. and the neighbor having problems last time was just some freakish coincidence? What a pain in the neck.
So I managed to ring the job agency and have emailed my CV as requested. I've never gone through an agency before, but it seems like a good idea. They have more jobs listed nearby than I EVER see in the local papers.
Maybe they can give me some idea where my shortcomings are in this job market. In some way, I'm sure it's based in the very fact I'm an american. Do they not like my temporary visa, not understanding it'll be made permanent after another 18 months? Maybe they question if I'll really stay here. Are my job references too hard or too much of a bother to check on?
Being really extreme, do they wonder if I've done something illegal... am running from the law in my country? LOL... (NOT true btw!) Perhaps they think, like most of my customers, that I am simply insane, unhinged for wanting to leave the US?
At any rate, while not specifically asking these things, I've asked for feedback or suggestions. I hope I figure this out soon.
As a random aside, have you seen this site ?
