Thanks for the comments, guys. I appreciate the tips. I’m feeling pretty hopeful because, if nothing else, I do have a strong work ethic (I blame Catholic grade school for it) and should be able to get my references to write letters that will reflect that part of my character. And I love to learn; so if someone will be willing to hire and train me, we’ll all benifit.
I’ve purchased my bus ticket to Denver; so now I’ll start preparing myself. If you think of any tips on interviewing, please pass them on.
Thanks for all the help,
Michael R. 🙂
