Well I finally got notice that I was accepted for a civil service exam that I will take next Weds.

Keep those fingers crossed, say a prayer or two and send positive vibes that first it won't snow that day, at least not too much :( and second that I can keep myself from backspacing automatically on the typing part of the test.

I know I'll do fine on the written exam but that nasty right hand lag time sometimes has me reversing letters.

I guess I should do a third positive thought that there actually be will a job opening with all the cutbacks and they aren't just scheduling the test to get more money in the state coffers.

edit Just noticed I left the E off service so I guess I should have you keep your fingers crossed on my spelling too. :D

Well the computers were messed up when I got there so we had the written test first, which I know I did really well on. Then came the typing test. I have that nasty lag time on my right side due to my neuro damage and it almost got me. I failed the typing test the first time, by 1 error! They let us take it again so I slowed down a bit and did the best I could. Then they told me that they couldn't tell me if I passed. I was so disappointed I felt like crying. After I got in my car one of the women ran out and said she couldn't say whether I had passed or not but I can do this... and she was smiling ear to ear and told me to have a great week. Now comes the wait for a job opening.

Thanks Patti, I had the thought the other day that with the state of the budget in my state right now and all the cuts that they may 'offer' retirement to some of the higher level folks that have been around 20 or 30 years and bump some others up leaving a space for the newer, lower pay scale folks. Keeping my fingers crossed as I sure could use a job that has some form of health insurance. If nothing else there is always retail sales if my savings go to low before I hear anything.

That makes a lot of sense--so many states are looking for ways to trim their budgets.

What a sweetheart! I love it when people reinterpret the rules to do something nice. :)

Good luck on the job search. I hope your dream job is just around the corner.
