WIP Wednesday the Twenty Eighth

No pictures this week - but I can tell you that on my Husbands Slytherin Scarf I'm half way through the last green stripe. YAY! It's almost done!

I was also reminded recently that I myself am a work in progress. I'm still employed at my current job, but I've been applying for other jobs because I would like to find a place where there's room for advancement, better pay, and a normal schedule. Thankfully there seem to be a lot of customer service jobs out there - but then I realized that I might be looking for a long long time because silly me forgot to update the email address on my cover letter and resume. I had applied for at least 5 jobs with that outdated information without realizing it. And then once I fixed that I realized that there was a line in the cover letter about a letter of recommendation from my supervisor (I had been copying an old cover letter and tweaking it according to the job I was applying for, and somehow completely missed that line) and I had applied for 5 more jobs with that.

This all has been fixed now, but, man oh man, am I so embarrassed! I can't believe I didn't catch that!

I'm going to go hide now. But while I hide make sure to check out Tami's Amis for less mortifying works in progress!

  5. @ Nicole - Thank you!

    @ Chrisknits - Thanks!

    @ Nothingbutknit2 - Thank you! I'm hoping that I can find a place that I can stay at until I retire. Which is something else about my current job; it's not someplace I see myself working at when I'm sixty, if they're even around that long ;P

    @ Hi I'm Vicki - Thank you - I hope I find something else soon too.
