Having completed my resume and cover letter, I have officially put in applications for 5 open positions at the local hospital, which I could commute to using the bus, if needed, during bad weather, otherwise, it's a 5 minute drive. This is for various customer service positions, a career change for me that should not include hours of work taken at home, off of the clock, which I've done for years. I've focused on my people and language skills, as well as various positions prior to my former career, where I was in customer service. This is option one for me. It this pans out, I figure that I can test working in the medical field, gain some training and advancement, perhaps advance within the hospital if not move to a position at a physicians office. I am keeping all of my options open, not putting all of my eggs in one basket.
If for some reason, they are not interested, I move on to other options, seeking a position locally that will get me out of the home, creating additional income, one that will offer insurance in a year when my current insurance will no longer be an option. I have kept an eye out for help wanted postings as well.
