God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can;and wisdom to know the difference.
hi chelsi what was your decision are you gonna go if you do let us know how you made out
Supposedly former employers can only say what dates you worked for them, but I know there are ways around things like that.
You may also want to check your library for computer classes. Also, they may carry material for you to use to learn at home. (our library carried the Dummies series of books for Windows, etc.). You could do this while waiting for your classes to start.
Also, in reality you may have to take a less desirable job just to stay employed to keep your resume up to date. It will show you are willing to work wherever necessary.
The comment your counselor made didn't go over well with you; I hope you'll mention it to her for your peace of mind.
Keep us posted on how you are!
