I heard about WAHVE through CPCU (insurance industry group) & sent them my resume (27 years' insurance experience at companies & a broker, the most recent in Energy & Marine, 3 professional designations & a BBA from Texas) to inquire about my prospects. I got a very nice response that they were sure they would be able to find work for me but I would need to complete their online application so I did just that once I got approval to go part time at my "retirement job" at an airline call center.
I had visions of taking a small gig now & then & being able to write off home office expenses, license renewal fees, CPCU dues etc.
When I got a call back, the interviewer seemed very put off that I had a part time job, even when I explained it was needed for health insurance & was typically only evenings &/or weekends. She asked me to let them know if I ever quit that job. I told her I would, and to please also let me know if the fact that I worked 12-20 hours a week evenings & weekends was no longer a disqualifier.
Then she decided to continue her screening questions, & when she learned which agency management system was used by my last insurance employer, she said due to that they would not be able to offer me any work. I had just learned 6 different systems for my new job creating & modifying reservations, frequent flyer account maintenance, baggage claim tracking, flight tracking, travel fund management, maintenance of past reservation data, etc., but because my last employer had an antiquated system, I'm of no interest to WAHVE. Alrighty then.
So I felt I had gotten the runaround & intended to follow up with the original person I got the email from, but then Harvey hit Houston & my Mom fell & broke her hip & wrist & I wondered what I was thinking looking for more work anyway.
