I am job hunting for a better job......one that actually will cover the bills....so I went to a local job fair......for those of you who have never been to a job fair.....its a gathering of employers who are seeking to fill the high turnover jobs that they have....the call center and sales jobs that no one wants......I have been to several job fairs recently and its the same employers everytime with the same jobs.......An interesting and different exhibit was a booth set up by some AVON reps.....a group of middle age african american women entrepreneurs (god bless em)......I approached their booth out of curiousity and they began their speil about me becoming a avon representative.....they said that one of their top sellers last year was a man who had sold over a million and a half dollars worth of product........I said that was great.....but how much do I need to sell to get a pink cadillac?.....they gave me nervous grins and snickers........then one of the ladies begins to show me and another woman the product line out of the catalog.....she says....... let me show you the best skin lotion ever made *flippin thru catalog* whats really great about it is that it will soften the calluses on your hand.....she turns to me and asks me if I ever get calluses on my hand......I said "yes I do"............but mainly on one hand...........

You know I went to a job fair last year at the convention center. All i seen where booths set up for drivers over the road, hospital staff, nurses, and alot of temporary services. I was very discouraged I got up dressed up resume's in hand and was out of there in under an hour and oh yeah I seen your Avon sellers there also

I have been to many "job fairs" in prison,lol. There were so many "great" jobs, that it just wasn't fair to have to make up my mind...................I was brought back to reality with the next load of laundry the was dumped at my station for folding.

You'll have to work on getting a woman so you can give your 'one callused hand' a rest!!!

tsk tsk

This reminds me of a time I went to the post office. They had just changed to the self adhesive stamps. The woman at the counter was an attractive blonde who was maybe 30 yrs old. When I got the stamps, I commented on the fact that they were different...and she said. "now you don't have to lick them anymore".

I gave her a sly grin and said "but, half of the fun is licking it". She started to turn red...fanning herself...the guy at the counter next to her said "do you two want to be alone?"

yeah, I'm a perv.

Looks up Avon Rep? Besides he only said one hand gets the action..... I wonder what he does with the other one

On the serious side, I worked for about 3 weeks at this call center last year and one of the guys there was building his Avon Business. I dont know about the selling part, but visiting women in the afternoon while their husbands are at work and demonstrating the skin softening efects of Avon products must have some serious fringe benifits......

Just seems to me though that you are way too cool to drive around in a pink cadilac. Maybe they offer the Black SUV models for their men Reps... Anyway good luck.
