For the first time ever on USA Jobs one of my applications says "Reviewed." It means someone looked at it but no clear decisions have been made about it. However, I did get an email saying I didn't meet the qualifications for the GS-07. No word about GS-05. But this application was so weird, like, it said GS-05/07. I really don't know what it means when they combine the two. Are they looking for a combination of both? Some parts of the application confused me, and the email didn't help much. So I'm not sure if they're still deciding on something or if I won't ever hear from them again.

Even so, I don't want to be a 5 somewhere else. I was in it for the 7.

I applied for another 7 today for places in Idaho, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming. I'm curious to know if that one will go through since my last one got rejected. I didn't read the little blurb under the "Not Referred" status, and it basically said I wasn't qualified. ??????? But the application I put in for the same exact job in places in New Mexico said I was among the "best qualified"??????? I don't know if someone made a mistake or if maybe I answered too confidently on some of the questions and they thought I was lying or something. It just felt like a slap in the face. I guess they're looking for people with more experience and skills, I don't know.

Today was the unemployment orientation. I came back feeling lower than ever, mostly because I realized I made a few mistakes during this process. I have to attend workshops on things I already know how to do. But I figured maybe I could learn something new or brush up on some things. Aside from archaeology, which my chances with are slim during this time of year, if not completely nonexistent, and I can't travel, either, my only other option is retail. I have been applying to retail jobs, but I was hoping to do something different, but I don't have experience anywhere else--well, besides the library, but they don't like hiring short term. Actually, it seems like a lot of places don't like doing that. So retail becomes my only option.
