|09:06 am - Buddy, can you spare a crappy retail job?|
Yes, I do still show up here from time to time, which means I still show up on various flists from time to time. I'm here to ask a favor. I need some seasonal employment, starting yesterday, and going on until sometime in maybe January. (If all goes well, that's when I'll start student teaching.) I know department stores are always hiring, but a lot of people are out of work right now, and will be running over to those places to beg for work. And I don't relish "Black Friday" at all. I went through a long period when I was the Queen of the Job Interview, so I know by now how things will go even before I walk in, even before I apply. While my "that won't work... nope, won't get that one..." and so on may seem defeatist, it's just me being realistic. I know what might be a real lead, and what won't. I also know that it's easy to overlook things. So, if any of you Chicago darlings have any good leads regarding seasonal work (that is, you actually know of a place that's hiring), I would appreciate suggestions!
