- I must have used up all my "nice paper" in the final flurry of JobQuest2010 mailings. Did not give it a single thought while I was at the office supply store making photocopies today after work.
I guess plain white paper will have to do.
- I have hard copy confirmation of only one of my three required clearances, even though I reapplied for everything (including getting fingerprinted for the millionth time in my life) last July when I signed my new contract. I checked with the H.R. office*, and they don't have anything, either--other than the copy of the one thing I have!
I will be writing an explanatory paragraph about that little oversight in my cover letter.
Yeah, so none of this stuff bodes well, but at least I tried. That said, it has been my experience in the past that every once in a while, there does come that unexpected response (i.e., not a rejection).
*How did I ask about them without raising any red flags? Well, I have been thinking about taking a summer job working with kids, so. . . I do need them and that's not lying.
