I'm in the middle of summer job hunt, which sucks, especially in this economy. Anyway, I applied at a store about a week ago. They haven't called me yet, which really doesn't surprise me. As it is, the lady told me they were "accepting applications," when I asked if they were hiring. I'm thinking the discrepancy between "accepting applications" and actively "hiring" is not in my favor. But anyway, my mom thinks that I should go back to the store and say that I turned in an application a week ago, and that I was just wondering about the status of it. She says that you almost have to be kind of pushy about it to show that you care. Personally, this seems too aggressive to me. I feel like I could ask the woman in there and she'd probably just shrug and say there was nothing she could tell me either way... I just feel like it'd be pointless. What do you guys think?
