Job-Fair Week in Average-Land

I’m heading off to the West coast for two weeks on Friday. I’ll be visiting my relatives (who are scattered around Langley, Vancouver, Surrey, White Rock, Victoria – you name it, I probably have a relative there) and my fabulous sister Dizzy’s family – pictures of adorable niece sure to follow.

While I’m away, I’m trying to find some guest bloggers to fill my shoes and take care of the plants since Falwless almost killed them last time she stayed in Average-Land (PS. Falw, red wine is not good for plants – no matter how many “nutrients” it supposedly has).

The Imaginary Reviewer
inadvertently gave me a fabulous idea based on his hilarious post and the fact that I’m searching for a new job. Instead of asking people to just write an entry, I’m asking everyone and anyone to send me a story that has to do with employment.

Anything at all about a job: finding one, having one, losing one, hating one, loving one, first job or current. Anything really that has to do with a job. It’ll be job-fair week in Average-Land!

Send any stories: short, long, sad, funny or ridiculous, (hell even just make one up) to aliceinaverageland@gmail.com by October the 9th at midnight. I’ll be sure to email you back with the day your post is appearing and give you lots of blog loving on the post itself (links etc.)

  1. Have a good trip! You might be hearing from me …

  2. I’m the HR Director for my company, so I have literally THOUSANDS of good stories about employment. (Do they have “HR” in Canada? I always get confused by the metric system and whatnot.)Anyway, here’s < HREF="http://www.extraneous-kickassery.com/2007/04/dont-call-us-well-call-you.html" REL="nofollow">a funny story<> I posted on my blog awhile back.
