Some career advice from my Warrent Officer:
The jobs I interviewed for a few weeks back didn't pan out. They would have paid really well, but the shifts would have made keeping active with cadets challenging.
But earlier in the summer Wierdy-Beardy mentioned a friend who owns a small factory in town and he'd put in a good word for me.
"I'm not looking for anyone right now but maybe in the fall" says the friend.
"Ride out Ottaway (my temp job) for the summer and see how New Form (the friend of Wierdy-Beardy) shapes up in the fall" says Mrs. Rabbitman wisely.
Weekend before last Wierdy-Beardy says his friend was looking for my resume and couldn't find it. I resubmit and Wierdy-Beardy takes a copy in person to put right in his hand.
So Thursday I had an interview plus another one at a different factory. Friday New Form calls back and can I come in for a second interview on Tuesday?
The second interview was a job offer starting at a few cents shy of what I'd worked up to at Schaeffler before that went sideways, plus it's straight days and weekends for myself.
I start Monday.
