It seems there's an opening for an administrative Assistant at the Lighthouse for the Blind here in Houston. My job search counselor faxed my resume to the lady needing an assistant yesterday, and I've left a message with the Lighthouse's personnell administrator. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I would like to earn at least $10/hr. or $20,000 a year, but as this is a non-profit organization, I'm not going to demand that. Really, I can't afford to be picky, right now; I need a job. If asked, I won't work for less than I was earning with the state. I think I at least deserve that much, considering the length of my experience.
All this is a moot point at present, though, as I haven't even been asked to interview. It would be nice to get a job for my birthday, though, expecially in a place where they understand about needing adaptive equipment.
Off to look for more openings. I tried St. Luke's yesterday, and their site seemed to be down. I'm not exactly sure why I bother, as St. Luke's has never expressed the slightest interest in hiring me, but it's always worth a shot. I'm also going to investigate volunteering for them.
Olympics: Way to go, gymnast Paul Hamm, swimmer Natalie Coughlin, and the women's beach volleyball team! I never thought I would praise a sport as seemingly silly as beach volleyball, but I can see how it is more difficult than traditional volleyball--sand is more difficult to move in, and you have to contend with wind.
When will they be doing equestrian events?
The little Olympics illustrations on the Google masthead are wonderful! Today's is of a delicate, female weightlifter. (g)
