For good or bad ...

October 11th, 2006 at 05:39 pm

I applied for a job today. There's a local company that some friends of mine work for that's hiring for an accounting related position. It's actually doing some other admin stuff too but I think that'd be a good starting point really. The only catch is, I have no clue what the pay is. I don't know what my friends make, I never thought it appropriate to ask. The gal who sent me the job description said she didn't know what the pay range was either. So that's a potential downer. I cannot take less than $18/hr. They are only requiring a HS diploma. The jobs I've seen that only require that don't usually go above $13/hr around here. Especially with the added commute, it would definately stretch my budget even at my lowest required pay.

So I guess we'll just wait and see. I know I can do the things the job requires. However my resume doesn't exactly show that. I probably should have written a cover letter but it's already been submitted with a personal recomendation from my friend that works there so perhaps that will balance out. They really do prefer to hire from withing their own circle (ie people who know people who work there) it would seem. So I guess we'll just wait and see.

Though every time I see I have a new email I pause and wonder if I really want to check it.
