First I want to thank GOD.... secondly I want to thank gt6974a for the advice. I followed his advice and went onto computer jobs . com last night and started emailing my resume to recruiters. I got a phonecall this morning from one of the recruiters to come in and take a skills assessment test and an interview. Even though I was pretty nervous I went in with the confidence that I knew I was going to get whatever job they placed me with. Well I took the microsoft office test, then data entry. They then had me to take a customer service assessment. When I was done with all three they asked me to go sit in the lobby while they reviewed my scores. They left me sitting out there for like 20 minutes so I was starting to grow kinda nervous about it and then she came back in and signaled for me to come into her office. From that point she formally extended a job offer that's contract to hire after 6 months. I was so happy I almost burst into tears. Man its like such a heavy burden off my shoulders. Everyone that gave words of support and prayers I am very appreciative. So excited I can't even sit still. I start on Wednesday, full-time 8-5.

Wow! This IS GREAT NEWS!!! I'm so happy for you. Wish I had better clerical skills. I'm a fast typist, but that's about it.
