It paid several dollars an hour less than what I'm looking for, but I figured I would sign up on their staffing website. I wrote the woman back within the hour to say I didn't think I would be able to take a full time position all the way out in Acton with my current commitments in downtown Boston.
Dear readers: in my resume career objective section, it says I am looking for a part-time position on the top of the page. I am very clear with my goals.
Apparently she was frustrated that I was no longer interested in being the fix to her staffing problem. I received an email lecture back, about how this woman knows some very nice musicians, who, while very good at their "hobby" (ugh!), needed to pay the bills. Apparently I have to "make a choice" between my professional and creative lives.
I'm pretty sure this is verbatim the lecture I received from my high school nurse.
Needless to say, I made my choice quickly and deleted her email.
