Still looking for a job

Sometimes I wonder if I shouldn't just give it up and apply for well fare.

I was contacted by a company and went through two telephone interviews - one with HR, one with the relevant manager. Then they brought me in for four face-to-face interviews - HR again and three managers. But did I get the job? Nooooooooooooo. According to the email I received (almost a week later than they told me I would hear and after contacting them), I was an excellent candidate, but they hired some one with some unique skills (translation - younger than me).

The supervisor for the college computer lab contacted me to see if I wanted to work there for the summer (no students available for the work). So that's what I'll be doing for 12 weeks. Not a lot of money, but the basic bills starting in June will be covered.

The worst part of all this is that my lack of income means I'm losing my house. I'm trying to see if I can stave it off long enough to try and sell the house myself, but it's not looking good. See my first sentence.

I can call my mom tomorrow, but I think they sold my grandma's house thru ... it was not as much as they could have gotten on the 'market'... but it worked for them and it was quick. Just a thought.

I just found them online. As soon as the erstwhile housemate gets home, I'm going to talk to him about this. It just might work.
