[your phone is ringing and on the other end is a slightly nervous sounding man with a question]

Um, I've been here for a while and I was wondering how you go about applying for a job? I have experience in Teaching and a degree in accounting from home, but I prefer the teaching route. I'm also fluent is Spanish.

You weren't... just assigned a job?

I don't think so. My arrival was a little hectic though, maybe I missed it?

You may have gotten a call about it.

What? Wouldn't they call back if you never showed up for work? I don't want to get fired from a job I didn't know I have.

They usually don't fire you, but they will call you to let you know you've "missed work".

That seems, strange. I guess I'll just wait for a call then.

Thanks for the help then.

Normally we're just... assigned jobs. You wake up one morning and your drone-family tell you "Mother, aren't you going to work?"

Or "Father" in your case.

That's strange. You can't apply for them?

If you want to be pro-active, I suppose you could.

I'm beginning to think I might just want to wait for this phone call everyone keeps talking about...

Ya actually want one? usually if ya wait around long enough, they just give ya one.

I really enjoyed my job at home even with all the...well it's not that important. I just thought it would ease the transition, to do something familiar here.

I just hope I don't get stuck with an accounting job.

that icon. o_o

I guess that makes sense. Aw geez, I had an accounting job before they changed it on me. It's tha worst!

It's soul crushing, probably why I went into teaching instead of perusing a career after school.

Be lucky they just didn't assign ya somethin', then. ya could be just about anythin', no matter what ya did before. Like a doctor 'r a barber, 'r somethin'.

Date: 2011-05-26 03:04 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] bustsamove.livejournal.com
A Doctor? I'm not sure that's a good idea. I have no medical training.

[pause]

I did cut my own hair back in college though...

Best bet then is ta contact tha school before Mayfield decides for ya.

I guess it's worth a shot.

If the town hasn't already assigned you one, I suppose you could try private tutoring, ja?

Date: 2011-05-24 05:13 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] bustsamove.livejournal.com
Hmm, maybe. Thanks for the idea.

Is there a reason as to why you want to apply for a job here?

From: [identity profile] bustsamove.livejournal.com
It seems kind of strange not to have one, it's probably silly but I was hoping it might make the transition easier.

Date: 2011-05-26 05:21 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] gaydrill.livejournal.com
[ . . . ] Well, ja, work can quite successfully take your mind off the fact that you're stuck here.

Date: 2011-05-26 03:07 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] bustsamove.livejournal.com
Right. I have a tendency to use work as an escape I guess...

No matter how numbning, it brings a certain kind of routine to the otherwise dull days.

Which here, for obvious reason, can be appreciated.

Hopefully I'll get that call soon then. Everyone keeps saying I should just get one telling me to come in. I just hope it's not a bad job.

Usually they assign a job that has at least a slight connection to your presumed skills. I used to work as a prosecutor slash musician back at home, now I'm just a mere lawyer, but there are some exceptions from this norm.

I'll keep my fingers crossed then.

Most folks just wake up one morning gettin' calls from their new boss, as though they've been working there all their lives. Not sure how to apply normally, but I oughtta warn you, it might not last -- I went from bartender to teacher one day with no real explanation. They can switch it up however they want.

Bartender to teacher? Really? I guess a resume is useless here...

Date: 2011-05-25 10:44 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] idkmybffcoffee.livejournal.com
Some change of pace, yeah? But you can kinda see the logic if you look hard enough -- I worked as barista for my own cafe back home, with a little designing on the side, and artist to art teacher isn't too bad.

Date: 2011-05-26 03:06 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] bustsamove.livejournal.com
I guess that makes a little more sense.

What was it like to teach here?

Date: 2011-05-26 04:20 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] idkmybffcoffee.livejournal.com
Hah! Don't expect it to be much like home, that's the best advice I can give. In a class of thirty, you might have ten normal dedicated kids -- then ten more who're only there because they have to be, two robots, a couple gods in kids' bodies...

It's not hard to figure out who's invested and who's not, but dealing with all of 'em together? That can be tricky.

Date: 2011-05-26 04:55 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] bustsamove.livejournal.com
That actually doesn't sound too different from back home, well except for the robot and gods part. You are right that I'm only used to teaching real kids.

Date: 2011-05-27 01:24 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] idkmybffcoffee.livejournal.com
Outta curiosity, what was it you taught? They've stuck me in a high school classroom, which isn't too bad, I knows kids that age. And the robots might be a challenge, but they're interesting enough to make up for it.

Far as I can see, if you're a guy who likes people, the town's not half as boring as folks make it out to be.

I taught Spanish and I directed the school's Glee club.

... Glee club?

[ He's got no idea what that is, sorry bro. ]
