If you were to believe my DD�s Facebook page, she was distraught to be rejoining the workaday world. That was just posturing!
She graduated from Vet Tech school last October, and hasn�t been able to land the job she wanted. She�s studying for the certification exam this Thursday, and has been as irascible as a bear. I�ve also had to talk her down off the ledge a few times when it seemed she was going to self-destruct.
After a couple of out of town interviews that didn�t yield jobs, I started sending her listings for every vet tech position open on craigslist. I was told that they all required experience, or that the job was below her capabilities. Still I pushed. And she went on interviews, all the while telling me why these weren�t the jobs she wanted.
She came home late last night from her first day on the job. One of those jobs she wasn�t going to get. One of those jobs that didn�t pay enough. And she was flying high! Suddenly this was the best clinic in town, though pricey. So I�d be forgiven if I didn�t switch back to using them again (they had been my clinic of choice for many years.) She�s taking Olive the rat in today to be treated for the sniffles; I hope she gets a discount!
Here�s hoping the cheerful mood continues; here�s hoping that Thursday�s exam is successful. I could use a little less stress in my life, and so could she.
Update: exam was passed!!!!
