So, I just passed my state test last saturday.
SUPER STOKED! It feels like the hardest part is over, and a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders. Getting a job actually seems like a REALITY now!
So now, I'm just wondering where to apply and when...I'm in Dayton, OH, and it seems like there are CNAs EVERYWHERE here! There are just a few problems I'm having, that I'm going to be totally honest about.
1. The most minor of them all...I'm going to school for occupational therapy, and have to have the job bend around my schedule a bit. If I could just be a weekend warrior, that would be great.
2. I don't drive, but I DO have a reliable mode of transportation, so that shouldn't be a HUGE issue.
3. This is the big one.....when I was younger, I bounced between relatives a LOT, moved around, switched schools, etc. It got so bad that I dropped out when I was 16. The last highschool I went to was in Columbus, for a day so I could officially withdraw, and I don't remember the name of it.
Here's the good news...I DID get my GED last year. (obviously, or I wouldn't be in college.) I just don't know what to put in the "highschool" section, and I don't just want to leave it blank....it looks bad. But truly, I have bettered myself. I have a 4.0, for christ's sake, so this is very frustrating...I need this job.
