Update on Job Search

First I'd like to thank everyone who sent out their love and energy to help me find a job. As someone not accustomed to outside help, any thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated.

The position I interviewed for yesterday just wasn't right for me. The staffing service was not accurate in their description of the job. I was thinking it was a clerical position. Its not. I would have been required to enter some data into their computers, but I would mainly be checking in mail and restocking their inventory which would require heavy lifting. Sorry to say but my back and feet just can't handle that kind of work anymore. I did a manufacturing job for a lot of years and toward the end of that job I was in a lot of pain. My husband was able to do some of the lifting for me so I never quit because of the pain, but if he hadn't of been there to take up the slack I would have left for that reason. I have a lot of experience in that area, and since It was a skilled job I could have made more money if I went for it again. But I won't because of the pain.

I guess I failed to inform the staffing service that a manufacturing job just isn't for me. Though to be fair, I said I am looking for clerical!

The job does sound excellent for my husband. So we are going to make sure they see his resume' again. Hopefully we can get him an interview. I know he would be good at it and the company sounds like a good one. So more love and energy for him would be a blessing!
