Not Here

Last week, I got notice that there was a job I may be interested in. The plant is right down the road from me, only twenty minutes, but I needed to apply through the IETC (Illinois Employment Training Center) in Dekalb, about 45-50 minutes away. Not a big deal. When I got home, I had an email informing me of another job, and this, too, required I apply at IETC Dekalb. Grrrr....

So today, I'm trying to get myself together, and make my trip efficient, killing as many birds as I can, with just the one stone. It's not going too well. See, I don't exist.

The site that's set up with Illinois Skills Match (which I would recommend, normally) will not recognize me. At all. I entered the site via an e-mail that they sent to me, and when I tried to log on and was rejected, I asked that they e-mail my password. I was informed that my e-mail did not exist. In fact, after trying everything I could possibly think of, I exist not at all. If you're reading this, you've tied a good one on.

Pass me that bottle...

That's not a good sign.

Wouldn't that be because you died like 2006 years ago? Just wondering...

Time to get on the phone with them and figure it out... this one is beyond email. Not that I think they can help anyway! Yikes!

OMG...I'm so glad you posted this, I forgot to register with that stupid skills match site. Thank you for reminding me, lmao.

I assure you, you exist... somewhere... And hey, if you're just invisible that might actually be kinda fun! uh...

('Course that's me, little miss "bright-side")

I'm sure this will all resolve itself. Frustrating, though! :{

"Skills Match"? If Major Dad ever makes me go out and get a real job I am SO done for.

Quit whining and bring me lunch, as long as you're over this way.

I wonder how many well meaning citizens, good and bad, are screwed over by our friend, the computer, every day.

Best to just give in and not struggle. The government knows best, they say you don't exist, go on welfare and begin a firm daily regimen of no shaving and consuming large amounts of alcohol. Cartoons are optional.
