I walked into a local dollar store, dressed nicely, politely asked for an application and filled it out.
No sooner did I get home that I got a phone call and asked to come back.
Got a job that same day.
Turned out the gal I got the app from was the assistant store manager and she was so excited that she ran back and told the manager to hire me, lol.
Was I over-qualified?
That doesn't mean they won't hire you.
The only down side was that I always always always got stuck on the cash register (I wanted to be in the back unloading the truck, lol!).
That was because I had people skills and could do math when the register broke down (which happened often!).
It was hard work for just $40 a day but it was better than no work.
Of course, when I left the manager said, "Dang it! I knew it was too good to last."
The message I took from that: he wouldn't do that again.
He knew he wasn't going to keep anyone "who could do better" for very long... and it wasn't worth his while.
Still, you do what you have to do to make ends meet...
I would try to get a job...
But don't let yourself get too comfortable...
Remember your goals!
