 Carol's Journey

Interview Results Unknown

My journey began Martin Luther King Day
Off work that day because of bank holiday
Email came from agency for a job opening
Five month contract noted looked promising

Sent interest reply along with some questions
Asked potential permanent hire and location
Yes for right person with closer commute noted
She requested I update my resume as indicated

GED or diploma with year and high school name
Year of college degree with still more of the same
Add start and end months of employment history
I provided all information with some reluctancy

Later my online research confirmed my suspicions
Dates on a resume reveals illegal age information
Most people graduate high school by age eighteen
Anyone can calculate age with a few years between

Despite older age my revised resume now indicated
Two days later an in-person interview was requested
Follow up email had every detail scheduled already
Set up on Jan. 28th and I confirmed by phone as reply

Interview only about 10 minutes seemed to go well
Later regret of blunders made but results would tell
Recruiter said she was waiting for interview feedback
After email follow up I have not heard anything back

They wanted someone available to start right away
If chosen, I would give my temp job notice 2-3 days
Two interviews after mine were yet to be conducted
Then back to back snowstorms the process delayed

Perhaps I am not ready for a 40 hour week position
My body has changed over past 18 months duration
Multiple falls still cause intermittent pain in my back
Two part-time jobs last half December energy I lacked

God may have used resume revisions as red flag warning
His way to show me entry level position not worth pursuing
For reasons I may never know I sense God closed the door
He is in control of the future and has a better plan in store
