Found out today that I need my social security card. If I get a job the employer needs a copy of it so
My card was stolen years ago, along with my whole purse and it's contents, from a local fast food place. I forgot it and when I returned to get it, it was gone.
Within 2 hours someone had tried to write some checks. Someone else found my check book at the side of the road and called us. I think my license was with it. Everything else was gone.
All that to say, I didn't replace the card because I have my SSN memorized. It will take ten to 14 days to get a replacement. Just one more thing to slow me down in my job hunt. I'm sure learning a lot.
So tomorrow, it's off to the the SSN office with birth certificate in hand to prove that I'm me. Funny thing is my feet have grown so much since they took those prints. I don't know how they'll know it's me HA!
Also, I haven't had a resume written in many years, so I'll try to get that done this week too. It's funny I hadn't thought of these things. I'm so out of touch it's unbelievable.
The applications I've been filling out on line hadn't required the resume and cover letter or mentioned my SS card. I just recently started another application that required these. I am surely experiencing the real world now.
I guess it just won't be going as fast as I thought it would. I'll learn patience too as I continue on my merry job hunting way. It'll be okay if I don't go to work right away. It'll be an easier transition for the kids going to school. Easier for me. I don't know about them.
Ah yes, life is full of fun surprises.
