2nd Choice

Well, it looks like they offered the position to the other candidate. I was told if he turns it down then I'm the second choice.

Kinda torn about this. I need the paycheck. Yes, yes I do. I would have taken the job if it had been offered.

BUT here is where my ethics get me in trouble. I would have kept looking. This is not something I want to be doing in 5 years. Hitting the street day after day is hard work. And as I get older, it gets harder. Pretty soon all I'll be is charming, and that would make it even more difficult.

I don't take jobs with the thought that I'll just keep looking for something else. Hiring and training employees is an investment a company makes. An expensive investment. I usually only take positions that I feel will last.

So, for the company, I hope this guy takes the job. He's a street seller. From what I understand this is the type of sales he loves. Me? Not so much. Oh-I'd have done it and given my all. But in the back of my mind......

So anyway - I have an interview this morning and need to head out the door. I got a great lead yesterday that I'm hoping to hear back on early next week. Still waiting to hear from THE company. AND Cuz has come up with some great leads that I'm following. All is not lost.

But damn - a pay check would sure be nice right about now.

It would also be nice to hear from you! I've emailed you a couple of things and not heard a squeak back. I don't know if I've got a bad email address or what...but I need to hear back from you dear. I can't keep beating bushes down here if I don't hear from you.
