Tuesday I dutifully showed up at the Careerlink office in the old Alcoa Building. Nothing quite as horrible as I was expecting. In fact, it was more useless than anything.
Basically, I filled out a form, watched a stupid little video about the career center, then had one of the people there teach me how to use the search engine. I could have written that goddamn thing and done a better job of it, and someone thought I would need to be taught how to use it.
So I could've saved myself three hours, along with $3.50 in bus fare, had they not been so asininely vague in their letter and just told me what the hell was going on.
But then I could have done everything myself from home in about 20 minutes, and then they wouldn't have been able to count me as someone who had to come in begging for their help.
