If you don’t know what the #$%& you’re talking about, then don’t say anything. I don’t like it when people who are in charge of something don’t really know what’s going on. This is one of my pet peeves. I know that it happens, but how can you be in charge and not really know what’s really going on? Or worse yet, give out misinformation?
I am so glad that I thoroughly research whatever I’m interested in, or else I would be up the creek without a paddle. What am I talking about you ask?I am talking about someone that I spoke with recently regarding my application for L.A.U.S.D.
Except for my C.S.E.T. results that I get tomorrow, I have everything that I need to become hired as a University intern for L.A.U.S.D. I know because I have done extensive research. Well, why then did I get a different answer when I spoke with this person in question. She told me that I had to be in my credentialing program for at least a year (not true). She only told me negative stuff; what I couldn’t do. Okay, it’s fine to tell me the realistic aspects of what I can’t do, but THEN counter that with what I can do; with what I need to do to help me reach my goal.
Never once did she try to offer up any type of solution to me or give me other alternatives. When I tried to ask her more questions, she didn’t entertain them. She was pretty dismissive. This pisses me off. Had I been anyone else, I probably would have been discouraged. Since I didn’t get the answer that I wanted, I simply called back.
After speaking with my advisor a couple of days ago, she told me that even if everything didn’t go well regarding the C.S.E.T. , then I could ask for a provisional University intern contract. This is basically an emergency credential. I just wish that the person @ L.A.U.S.D. would have told me that. But you know what, I am very resourceful. I always find out what I need to know. I make it a habit of asking, asking and asking some more until I find an answer that’s satisfactory to me. I’m glad that I have a fantastic advisor.
This is for all those out there who don’t know their job. If you don’t know what you’re talking about, find out the answer(s) from someone higher up or maybe even an underling who knows the real answer.
That my dear sir or madam is my rant for the day!
