I wish I could tell you that progress had been made. But really, it hasn't. I had another phone interview and got moved to the testing phase... scored 95% on the testing (they consider anyone who scores 65% or better) and moved on to the second test phase plus the face-to-face interview where I was told that there were 500 applicants and that I am the first of "two or three weeks" of interviewing. So... yeah... I am wise enough to not hold my breath for this one.
I've been trying to connect with some other people who have called. It's not going overly well. I guess that once I am done writing this, I will try again.
Other than that, not much to report. Although I am signed up with over a dozen agencies, none of them have anything for me. Meanwhile, I've exhausted my Unemployment Benefits and due to the shenanigans currently going on with the government, I am not in line for Emergency Unemployment (at least until things get straightened out) so I am in just a bit of a panic.
So, here's hoping that I will be able to catch up with the folks who I've been playing phone tag with and that one of them will be making a decision (in my favor) earlier than "2-3 weeks" from now.
