Re: nursery interview apparel


Judy, thanks for the thoughtful words.   I did include my NPO-MG work on my
resume because it does illustrate things I'm capable of that don't show up
under work experience.  I do have a portfolio of  changes to my garden that
I put together for Guelph, so thanks for bringing that up.  It may come in
handy at the right interview.  Right now the nursery jobs available here are
for plain hard labor, often requiring heavy lifting.  I had to pass on a
Franks nursery manager job even though I fit all the other criteria because
it required you to "repeatedly lift 75 pounds".  I can deal with 50# for a
very short distance.  Since I have no health insurance and am aware I
already have ruptured disks in my neck, I'd have to be careful.

Kitty
