I want to work this summer, but am trying to figure out where! When you live in a small town there are not a lot of options.
I applied for a census position but I'm pretty sure that job ends about the time summer starts. I wrote the test for it yesterday and have an interview for it on Friday. I wonder what they will ask! I hate interviews!!
I also applied for a road crew job with the local construction company. Ideally I would like to be a flagger. It pays a decent amount (i.e. not minimum wage), it's long WEEKDAY hours (overtime and no weekends), and it's fairly simple (don't get run over). I haven't heard back from them yet though and I think they mostly hire students. D and other people are trying to tell me it's not a good job, but it's only two months, I think I can handle it for that long.
I applied online to become a respite worker as well. It would be working somewhat within my field. I really hope I get called for an interview with this as well. I think I might do a follow-up e-mail or call next week to ask if they are actually hiring anyone for the summer.
I have a few other places I think I will apply, including a landscaping company. I would ideally like to have weekends off, but that might be difficult. I can also only work July and August until school starts up again. I asked another supply teacher what she does in the summer and she said that she babysits and goes on EI. What do other teachers do?
