Yay! I finally did it!!

I finally sent off my application form for a job posting at the Chilliwack Courthouse. I am such a perfectionist, it was really hard hitting that "send" button - so final! I have been working on this job application form for about a week and this morning was still fiddling with it - using the thesaurus on words I wasn't too fond of, moving sentences around, etc. Let me add - I am so not qualified for the job I applied for which is why I was having such a hard time completing the application. But it is done!

As far as returning to work, it's a work in progress. So far, I have dropped off a general application form with the Chilliwack Courthouse and have spoken with the manager a few times already. We seem to get along which is definitely a good thing. If anything auxiallary comes up, I basically will get slotted in and start as soon as they need me (how terrifying is that?). In the meantime, I have to check the Government Job Site everyday for new job postings and apply for those separately. There is also a Court Clerk position at the Chilliwack Courthouse which is up for grabs, but I don't know if I qualify to return to work part-time. I have put a call into my manager and she is supposed to get back to me on that. Tomorrow I also plan on heading down to the Abbotsford Courthouse and dropping off a general application there. I spoke with the manager and she is quite sure there will not be any vacancies coming up, in fact, they are cutting back. But in government you never know and people quit or move all the time.

So that is my employment (or shall we say non-employment?) status at this time. I'm just hoping and praying something auxiallary comes up soon at the Chilliwack Courthouse. I hate all the testing involved in competitions - very stressful!
