Had a busy day yesterday. Went to Voc Rehab and then went Christmas and Grocery shopping on the military base in New Orleans.
I saw my vocational rehabilitation counselor and told her about all the things I have applied for and interviewed for in the last few months. I have been working with her for more than a year. I told her about the job I applied for at the airport and if she could get me a nonpaid work experience there to see if I can hack it and she said she would look into it.
She said they won’t pay to send me to law school because I already have an MBA and a lot of qualifications and experience. It was worth a shot. LSUs law school is more than $20,000 per semester. I figured it was worth asking. I probably would have become a disability lawyer part time.
She sent me an email last night and has set me up to see her counter part on December 7 and she is going to try to get me a nonpaid work experience with the IRS. I told her I had a work review with Social Security and I am deemed still disabled and get SSDI.
If I get the nonpaid work experience I won’t lose my SSDI and I would get a monthly stipend. That will help out with bills and if I do a good job they may hire me and I will see if I am able to handle it. I really want a federal job so this would be a good deal.
I have an assessment to take for a job I applied to with the IRS on my own so I need to take it I guess.
I wonder how long the NPWE will be for. I hope it’s long enough to get some experience and get hired. I will update the thread on December 7th if I have any luck with it.
