Honest Jobs for honest people

 

It’s not often that I come across a company like this one.  I first contacted them Sunday, it’s Monday and I have a couple personal emails from one of their Employment/Outreach Specialists welcoming me and giving me an update on my application.

The CEO Harley Blakeman started the company I wanted to start a few years ago, however he did it so with any luck I will get to work for him. 

Did I mention these guys are in the business to help people like me that have been “affected” by the criminal justtice system. Staticstically if you hired me, I would rarely if ever miss work. 

My level of loyalty would be beyond measure, And it’s likely I would outperform my coworkers. My appreciation for the opportunity would be well, great.

Why, well that’s very simple I have applied for 332 jobs in the past year – almost one a day! I’ve had 34 interviews, 5 offer letters and 5 withdrawl letters citing my background as an issue. So I got the job, I had an offer, a start date and I was in one case parked out front 30 minutes early, excited to start my first day. My father raised me to be pragmatic, “son life isn’t fair, stop fucking crying and get on with it.” Good ol’ Bill Cummins, I miss that mofo.

If you’re new to WordPress you may be wondering what’s the big deal behind Pages and Posts. At first glance they appear to be one and the same: if you were to create either a new page or a new post you’d be presented with nearly identical interfaces and in many cases the public appearance of pages and posts will look the same.

Don’t let this fool you. There’s a very fundamental difference between the two and that difference is what makes CMSs, like WordPress, great platforms for integrating blogs with traditional websites.

Pages

Think about the kind of pages that make up a typical website. Most often you’ll see pages like “Home”, “About Us”, “Services”, “Contact Us”, etc. Within WordPress these are often treated as Pages; documents that have no particular regard for the time they were posted.

For example, when you visit the “About Us” page of your favorite company’s website you don’t expect the content to be very different from what was available there a week ago.

MADNESS AND INSANITY

Its Friday afternoon and I just got searched. Don’t worry it’s standard when you get back from a pass. But more on that later, I want to catch the last few minutes of afternoon group. As I lean in the doorway an old vet talks in a soft voice about being a heroin addict. No empty chairs, it’s a small room. It smells like 14 junkies, in fact it smells like a muskrat just fucked a dirty sock in this room. The lack of an empty chair is a blessing. The lack of air conditioning disappointing. This isn’t a pretty place by any means. But a beautiful place without a doubt.
