It’s Not All Mary Poppins


Emma wrote two of her three tests today. She got 90% on the medical terms test (pass was 75%), and managed 6000 keystrokes/hour on data entry (required level, 4000). On that basis, they have scheduled the French language test for her on Thursday morning.

Then her file gets sent to the hiring side of HR.

And then she might get a job.

All this at not-quite-18. Wow.

You’d think this was a real job…

    • Yes and no. She passed all the requisite tests with flying colours. Now she’s in a pool of eligible people, and when there’s a position, she’ll be in the running. Not quite what she thought was happening when she started out, but better than a quick rejection!
