How can things get so ridiculously crazy in such a short period of time!?!?!?!

I come into work this morning to hear rumors about some of us losing our jobs, due to the hiring freeze/spending cut that's been installed. See, as student assistants, and since most of us were brought in at the end of last calendar year (my anniversary is 3 weeks from tomorrow), we have a 1500 yearly limit on our working hours, and even though when we get through those and our term expires, we are supposed to get automatically picked up again. Well, with a hiring freeze, we weren't sure how we would be affected. But we figure, if a few of us are lost, IT is seriously fucked, so even if it becomes a possibility I think they will allow some wiggle room. There's no way the remainder could manage the whole Dept of Parks.

I was at work today when I get an IM from my roommate. He tells me that the Loud Rock guy at the radio station left a message for me. Turns out he was asking if I might be interested in interviewing.....

*drum roll*


It was like someone just asked me if I would like to fuck Ashley Judd, as she had already agreed. I can't remember the last time I was so near hyperventilation. I mean, interviewing my favorite band? Gee, let me think! *thinkthinkthinkthink* OK!!!!

I guess the details are that I have to do it between 2 and 6 EST this week, which sounds to me like its a phone interview. No matter. I dont know how long I would have either, but OH MY GOD its a dream come true. Wish me luck on that one.

2 papers I have to write for tomorrow. With all the nervous energy going through me right now, I might not even sleep. I'm wired from anxiety.

Where are you a student assistant at? I'm a student assistant at the DMV. :)

I heard the hiring freeze isn't going to affect student assistants because we're like on contracts, so we aren't full employees. All I know is my boss is screwed if she loses me since I 0wn the DMV. :)

I work at the Dept of Parks & Rec. Are you exploited as much as we are?

My boss loves me. :) My workload isn't too bad...

When I got in today, there was an email about the hiring freeze and students. It just said no new hirings, but that they could use students to fill vacancies (like, promote students, I guess?). DMV has a lot of old farts retiring.

Thats awesome.. good luck :)

I doubt that the hiring freeze will have anything to do with student assistanct jobs, Especially renewals.. If it had, I probably would have heard of it too. It would have been announced somewhere. It would have to do with on and off campus too, as I am a "state employee" as well.
