This past weekend I tested for a position with the CHP and I have to tell you that it was exciting and nervous all rolled into one. I originally applied for this job last year and I just now got the invite to test, I had actually forgotten. I know that over 75 people tested on the day I took the test and I have a slim chance of getting the job, but I feel like I took the first step.
I test for the IRS next week and although its lower pay and the only seasonal its a stepping stone. I would gladly take either one. I feel like maybe things are turning around for us and I hope that the new year will bring us some much needed luck.
Working on one thing at a time is my new motto..
