Job Hunt

I started first thing Monday morning and by Tuesday afternoon I had approached 16 businesses about part-time work: 13 cold-calls, three responses to advertised positions.

By Wednesday afternoon I was considering five offers, all from places that hadn't advertised.

Two offers I rejected easily because of less desirable hours/pay/job description. After some careful consideration I went with my original gut feeling about where I will most like to spend my time working. I've chosen to go where the boss and staff seem happy, relaxed and friendly and where I have minimal contact with the public and maximum opportunities to bake yummy counter food.
