Whoa I finally got a call about a SECURITY JOB!!! This is something I really want and I really had to sell myself through two phone interviews to convince them to submit me for the job. It would be so good to get a job in the Security field, rather than having to take a Desktop Support job. I would really like to use these certifications I just got, and learn, and expand my earning potential!!! Now here’s the rub: they asked for two managerial references. I scratched my head for a good minute, because I could only think of one: Dr. Flaky. Then I came up with Dr. HasHerShitTogether, and I’m like, good! Well, they called my two references. Dr. HasHerShitTogether is out of town, and apparently Dr. Flaky didn’t give them what they wanted, because they emailed me and said that before they could submit me they needed a managerial reference who could speak to my technical abilities. So my whole drive home from my haircut (about a half hour) I’m thinking, can I get one of my friends to fake it? The one friend I’m thinking of, who is technical, and I used to work with, well I think she’s probably too much of a Christian to lie. The other friend who I used to work with, he’s a programmer, he’d probably lie for me, but a little wrinkle, well, he’s on meth and I just don’t know what might come out of his mouth.
SO! I am desperate so I contacted my old boss from my last job three years ago through Linked In. I asked him in the request to make contact if he’d be willing to be a reference to attest to my technical skills. I have NO IDEA what he thinks of me or if he’s going to laugh his fucking ass off, ignore me, or tell me to go to hell. But FUCK IT I HAVE NO PRIDE I WANT THIS JOB!!! So I am trying. And I figure, if it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be and it will work out. If it’s not meant to be, it won’t work out. I’m Bipolar and crusty and I’ve had bad relationships with bosses! What can I say? I can’t beat myself up!
So that’s the crazy news from here, I’m UP and I’m down with this job search. But I keep taking the calls and I keep submitting my resume to every fucker who calls. What can you do? Hope your week is going well, friends….. ❤ BPOF!
