I just got a phone call from a p. at a district that I applied to last week. He has lost part of my application and was calling to ask if I could resubmit it. He kept me on the phone for a good five minutes, talking about my experience and told me that he really liked my cover letter and wanted to be sure that he gave me a fair chance despite the fact that HR lost some of my papers! This is the highest-paying district in my regional consortium. It is a good 40 min. away which IS NOT what I wanted but let's face it I can't be picky right now. It is funny because I just arrived home from visiting my father at the nursing home. He is not doing well and I was kind of crying all the way home, worried about him and also thinking, well, not gonna get a job either, is anything going to go right anytime soon? Get home, check the listings and see that the posting for this job is still there, bingo, the phone rang!!!! Gotta go get to work resubmitting my stuff!!!!
