I have a job interview today! (updated)

I am not preparing for this interview. I don’t have the time. This way I will not have anxiety, and have time to ponder negative thoughts. I have 13 years experience in this field. I know they need help and I know I’m more than capable. I am going to just relax and be myself. I know if I relax, I will say the right thing, I can update this post, so we can see how this goes. I wrote a blog post about how to prepare for an interview. https://michellescrazybusylife.net/how-to-ace-your-next-job-interview-and-land-that-dream-job/ I’ve been told this agency hires healthcare workers with any certification that pass back ground check and a drug test. There is a shortage of healthcare workers, so I believe it.

This job is just a supplemental income. I will be an “independent contractor”. I have to do my own taxes for this job, but the upside is that I can deduct gas, and clothing from my taxes. I pick my own schedual, I don’t have an assigned boss or manager, like a 9-5 job, just the managers at the facility, probably oversee me. They can rate me and give me 1-5 stars.

This contracting job pays very well. This is what I need. My regular job pays poverty wages, for an extremely hard work, stress, and has a lot of responsibility. I have kids, they deserve so much more.

The agency is called Kare. It is for CNA’s and QMAP’s, with a CPR card, to work in assisted livings and Nursing homes, that are short staffed. The facilities pay bonuses anywhere from $75-$400 a day, on top of regular pay. If you get a 5 star rating, you get paid the next day!

Have you ever been an independent contractor? Is it worth it? Is it risky? This company could go out of business. They do not offer benefits. I have health, dental, and life, through my husband. They do not have 401K. I have 401K at my other job, but I make so little and they do not match it. If I have this job I can save my own money for retirement.

Choices, choices. I need to way the benefit versus the risk. Easier said than done… I am exhausted, I shouldn’t be online… I would like to be blogging right now, but I need sleep!

*Updated, so yeah, I got it. I just have to do my TB and drug test. I aced it. This is how it went.

It was a phone interview, he called me up, but I didn’t hear the phone ring, so I called him. Then we had a bad phone connection. He asked me if I was employed, I say “yes”, then because of the bad phone connection, I don’t know what else he said. Then he asked me how I would “handle grouchy residents”, I told him “I’ve been a caregiver for 13, and they have health aliments and dementia, so I know that they are like that, and I understand why, I said I would be sweet to them and try to take care of them and meet their needs. He loved my answer he said. That was it.

    Firstly, best wishes! I have done independent contracting for decades. It’s good. Some basic rules.
    1. All time is billable. Any time you spend on behalf of your client is billable.
    2. Never bill less than 30 minutes. Time is sold in blocks not seconds, minutes.
    3. Cancelations are billable in general 2 hours minimum.
    And so on.
