I must say things are back on track. My late assignment in Diversity Management was accepted and I was given full credit. The class is actually not difficult, it just requires a lot of reading and writing; well, it is a college course, but don’t avoid it if you need an elective, it is actually pretty interesting. I am feeling the mid-term lull coming on as different projects are going to be underway and Spring Break is approaching. This week my group in Business Policy is working on our group project. I a have a nice set of members, everyone is contributing well and I believe we are ahead of the curve. This LEP class is challenging me because I have no real interest in having an online identity. The discussions seem to focus on things that make me feel out of touch with our youth I can’t relate at times. My Personal Finance class is pretty neat. I wish had the class 20 years ago.
I have started my job search this week. I spent much of yesterday scrolling through job listings, then something occurred to me, I don’t want a commute. Well, nothing to far or too long. I live in Shakopee, and there are many businesses. I suspect many are hiring that I will never know about. I drove around the industrial parks yesterday. I decided I am first going to identify as many business in my area and visit their web sites. I also am looking at state and local government sites. Then I will apply starting close to home and then going outward. My previous work experience was in manufacturing and the shifts were usually aligned with non-rush hour, hours. Frist shift would start at 6:00 a.m., the roads are quite bare. Commuting to DCTC in Rosemount, I often had to go during rush hour. 169 north out of Shakopee is a night mare and when it snowed, the on ramps back up. Just leaving Shakopee is unpleasant, then you have the actual commute.
