Now that some of the excitement has died down, its on to business as usual. I have a test at the Census Bureau through the Employment Connection. I took the practice test and scored 24 out of 28., I'm sure I would have done better if I had taken the time to read the answers carefully. Anyway, the test is scheduled for Wednesday at 2p.m.
Per my usual, I don't want to work as a Census taker. I don't want to work outside and I don't want to go door-to-door, but the money is good, and when the E.C. called me, I said yes. On February 16th, I start the PROES program. It is an employment program for ex-offenders and I signed up for it in January. I'm not sure that I'm eligible for it since I don't have a felony record but we'll see. Maybe they can find me a nursing job match. Meanwhile, I'll be taking classes in resume preparation and interviewing techniques. I hope that they offer Microsoft Office Certification .
