Reality Check! 700 Applicants for One Job

     Saw this on Yahoo. This is what I must let go over me, through me, around me. This has nothing to do with what is unfolding inside me right now, or you. Reality check? Yes. My reality? No way.

 

MASSILON, Ohio – Evidence of the slumping economy is stacking up at an Ohio school, which has nearly 700 applications for one open janitorial job.

Officials at Perry Local Schools near Canton in northeast Ohio say they’ve extended the deadline until Monday to accommodate the overwhelming response to the week-old posting.

The full-time position at Edison Junior High School pays $15 to $16 an hour plus benefits.

Superintendent John Richard says many applicants are laid-off workers with heart-wrenching stories about the tough economic times.

Forty-nine-year-old Donna Croston says she applied after losing jobs at two nearby factories that closed.

Croston says her chances of being hired amid the hundreds of applicants are slim, but she’s hoping to get lucky.
