But I got it done, my resume that is. I finished it today. Tommorrow I am sending it out with job applications online to a few retail stores at our local mall. I only want to work part-time and then see how I go from there. Wish me luck because I am going to need it. I've done the first part, now all I need is to wait and see when and if I receive an interview/s and then take it from there. Thanks to my friends for your support and encouragement. It has helped me tremendously :) Let the games begin LOL :)

first of all thnx for the BR! that's cool! and i have read your other discussions about the job, i just need to get over and respond.....i'm trying to get caught up myself! i'm FINALLY done with my trng as well, graduated tonite! so i'm crazy excited, just for some extra income ya know? it's so nice, and is SO scary to go back to work though, so i feel ya there, but i'll tell you something, i like being a mommy and the such, but sometimes work helps put things in balance, like i feel like i help my hubby provide for the fam again, and that i'm not just mommy, i also help others, not just in my home, ya know what i mean? SO congrats on the job, and YAY! it'll be great for the holiday season to have that extra income!! good job!! proud of ya!!

Thank freckle :D:D

Goodluck to your first resume, i hope that this is your goodluck resume, because lot of people try many times before they got what they want to do in their life. Why did you choose to have part time job?

Hi anettenasser. I chose to work part time just to keep me busy now that my son is in school. Working over the holidays is all I want to do right now. I have never worked in retail before so this will be my first time working in that field and even though it can be demanding, i am looking forward to starting my job this afternoon. I had a full day training yesterday and it was a lot to take in so fingers crossed it goes ok today.

If you like to earn as part time then go to my profile and visit my blog. Their are two ways to earn, first by applying as a freelance, and bid for project. It won't cost you a thing. The second one is just by answering questions, yes they pay when you answer a question for them. The price per question is $5 - $20. It all depends on your area of expertise. It you want to be professional, just go on over to the search box, which is posted on my blog. Then apply to be one

Well I do wish you goodluck, I hope you pass the interview and get the job. You're right about the "first part" thing, as the rest will be up to you!;) Part-time or not, the best thing is you get paid for money and earn money for the holiday seasosns!;)
