so, after being all excited about the new job, and all nervous about telling the other Spas I was quitting on Mondays and Wednesdays....

I call N. at the new place. she says that she is delighted that I accepted and will talk to her boss regarding sponsorship and pay rates. she calls me back in half an hour:

"How are you? Im so sorry, but M. decided that she doesnt want to take on sponsorship right now. Im really sorry about this. I thought you were sweet and really talented, but she just doesnt want to sponsor someone. We are expanding, so please call us back in the fall after you have your license."

BUMMER! :( I mean, it's a lead later, like in October, but I need to pay for life now! Ugha. Disappointing.
So, Dave just left for work. I have to be back in Brooklyn to be on call by 2pm. So, this morning, I'll be revamping my resume, and searching for some more job options.

Ive signed up to take the National Certification Exam on 8/18 and State Boards are offered on 8/25. Yay for August. Cant wait to get through that! I was down yesterday, but Im feeling a little more motivated today to keep truckin. Dave is so supportive. He took me grocery shopping in his 'hood and took my mind off everything with a few ugly heads of lettuce and bad Key Food customer service.

Is the limited permit\sponsorship thing because you need so many "hours" of massage therapy under your belt before you take the test (like, lets say a pilot) or is it basically to let you work and earn a living until a test is offered? Has the school helped you with any leads? It's always hard finding the right fit with a new career, good luck to you!

It'd sure be nice to see that new red hair of yours in a LJ icon :) but I know you're having computer problems (is it totally dead?).

Maybe Key Foods needs an in-house massage therapist? ;)

I just have to be sponsored to work in NYS until I can take the test and receive my license#. No hours required.

Key Food? I used to shop at the one in Riverdale. That was ages ago. My folks preferred Waldbaum's down the hill (that was the only time I got fired from a job as a "bag boy" at the Waldbaum's). One of these days, you're going to run into my mother.......

That place is now a Stop and Shop. At least that's what Dave says.
