So some of you may remember I took a test in June to see how smart I am Kidding, it was for work. DH works at the shipyard up here, and it's the best job around essentially. So I've been applying for the past couple years, it only opens up once a year, and you have to apply, and take a college placement test, and then if you get a high enough score, you get an interview, and if they like you there then you have a physical, mental, and background check to pass. If you pass all that then you get in.


SO.


I was totally bummed the other day I got an email saying I qualified, but nothing else, and then I got one saying I wasn't placed high enough, so I was all upset. But it never mentioned my score in it. Which was weird, so today I got an email with "Notice of Results" in the title and it said (If I'm reading it right, but DH looked at it and agreed with me) I got a 90.2!!! Which is SO much higher than I've gotten before!


I am hoping and praying the first two emails were flukes (they have a weird new system they're using to send out results and stuff, and they're still having issues with it) and the second one is right. They're hiring something like 150 people, and there is just NO WAY I don't get an interview if my score is really 90.2. Last time I got an interview and my score was only 80, and that was right when the recession hit and there were 3500 people taking the test. This year much less people took the test, and I am SO EXCITED!!!!


Either way I'm happy, but I just would be pumped, because last year I got a 78, and this year is 90.2. I studied my BUTT off, so it would just be such vindication!

So. Prayers and Thoughts would be more than welcome! A) That I got an interview and B) That it's not when I'm busy giving birth! O.O

I hope you get the interview. I'm sure you'll dazzle them once they meet you.

Way to bring up your score!!! Seriously, that's a big jump, you must have worked really hard and you should be super proud of yourself! I will be keeping my fingers crossed that you get an interview!

Thanks!! I was so proud of me, and DH was too, I am just so excited. Either way I'm happy, Daycare will take a HUGE chunk out of my paycheck, but it's a good long-term career, and it pays great and it'd be nice to get our tushies out of debt and onto getting a house and a new car.

So there are pros and cons either way.
