Re: nursery interview apparel

I'm sure it will be mostly outdoors.  Arbor Farms deals more in Trees and
shrubs, but does also carry perennials.  No annuals.  Job is stocking,
watering, customer help.
I do have resumes into a couple of others, one would be more potting and
such I think.

Another drawback to any of these jobs is their temporary nature.  The one
I'm interviewing for runs March to December - then what?  Unemployment I
suppose, but less unemployment than I am currently eligible for.  The
potting job, I'm afraid might even be less $, and less time.

I know I don't sound very confident, and I do appreciate all the
encouragement you'all've given.  But another piece of info has come to
light.  I spoke with IN unemployment today.  What if I can't manage the job?
She told me it is a gamble.  I may or amy not be able to collect
unemployment if I try a job and don't stay with it.  Scary.
