Today is fired

I didn't get the job in San Diego. All they're hiring out there now off USAJobs is medical staff and DECA employees. (DECA is the Commissary System).

So I drove to Walgreen's, LHI packet in hand, directed to get my flu shot and an MMR shot. Why the MMR I don't know; I'm 50 years old and immune at this point to all three. The Walgreen's where I had my appointment scheduled didn't have the MMR vaccine on hand anyway. They also didn't know how to handle the LHI paperwork, despite being a provider registered with them. After five minutes of them fumbling around, and more customers showing up, I picked up my packet and left. I drove to the Walmart Neighborhood Market where I got my flu shot last year. Walmart honours TriCare (Walgreen's doesn't) so I got my flu shot with no problem. They didn't have the MMR vaccine on hand either.

I went home and applied for a couple more jobs. I have a phone interview for a six-month contract at Immigration, but no other nibbles. Pima and Pinal Counties both are taking applications, but only to hold onto them until they need to hire people.

I haven't felt this "blocked at every turn" emotion for a long time, and I really didn't miss it.

What kind of gigs are you looking for? I can keep my ear to the ground, but most of what I'd hear about is out here. Not sure what my BIL in Phoenix would hear about, but I can put the word out. (He's an air traffic controller.)

I think Robert Half has a legal division. Also, I've had good luck with indeed.com and glassdoor.com.

I think they want us all to get the MMR because there's so many people not vaxing their kids, and measles keeps having breakouts.

I got hit with the MMR when we came home from AFG - because of course, though I got an update shot after the MiniVixen made her entrance into the world, it never made it into my medical records.

((( ))) Thinking good job-related thoughts for you.
