So. I had the Vet Tech job interview last week. From my end, it went smashingly, and i *really* wanted this job. They were supposed to decide on Monday morning. On Monday afternoon, i phoned to check up and was told that the Doctor who owns the practice had been in surgery all morning, so decisions hadn't been made yet. By this afternoon, i was feeling pretty bummed about it--not only was it a job i fancied an awful lot, but i've never actually been turned down for a job after i got to the interview stage, so i was feeling a bit inadequate.

This evening, *ring.* The Vet Hospital on the phone to tell me that something happened and they're only going to be rearranging their current staff's hours at the moment. {sigh} Then, however, the statement "But we want to keep your resume on file if that's ok, we're certain another position is going to be available in the very near future, because we all loved you and really want you to work here." Immediately felt a whole lot better until it dawned on me that i simply don't have the money to stay unemployed for another few weeks in order to wait for this job to materialise. Still...

So, does anyone know of some short term/temp work around?

Sorry to hear it. Can't you just take some kind of crap job that you secretly plan to quit the moment the vet hospital frees up? I could put you in touch with my uncle for some inspirational talk about the heady joys of pizza delivery ;)

Wasn't it Mill who said, "better to be a pizza jockey dissatisfied than a pig satisfied."
