1st of May, 2011 by User993705
When I inquired about a job posting I saw on craigslist, I received an e-mail telling me to go onto Yahoo! messenger for an online interview. The interview as well as the company seemed promising until I started receiving the same useless answers to my questions, and no information whatsoever about where my money would be going or who I would be working for.

someone telling me what to do. My weakness is probably that I do not
like to leave things unfinished, and have a hard time moving on when
things are left undecided.

when my daughter is out on her own (she is only 2 and 1/2 now) I want
to be able start a business of my own, pertaining to either baking or
aquariums (my two biggest passions). I do not think I would need
extensive training. I'm already very familiar with computers and
Microsoft Office applications, and I'm a very fast learner. I would
describe myself as a very laid-back person who is easy to get along
with, who is also very persistant when I know what I want.
