Becoming a Blackjack banker was apparently the best career accommodation I anytime made. I had been jumping from job to job accomplishing data-entry and the like, and I was apathetic to death. Sitting abaft a board in foreground of a computer all day just wasn’t “doing it” for me. Not to acknowledgment the pay wasn’t that abundant either.So, afterwards getting laid off from my endure job, I hit the classifieds and saw an ad for a Blackjack ambidextrous course. I was a little bit skeptical, cerebration it ability be some “fly by night” accouterments area they yield my money, I yield the advance and annihilation comes of it. But afterwards I alleged their arch appointment and asked them about the company, I abstruse that the advance was for one of the a lot of accepted casinos in the lower mainland! They were extending their hours and bare LOTS of dealers.
I’d just been to Vegas for the aboriginal time a brace of months afore and I played a little Blackjack. It looked simple abundant so I ample “how harder could it be to deal?” At the job interview, which was basically to assurance up for the course, I abstruse that it wasn’t all that simple. I was accustomed a abbreviate accounting analysis to see if I could, in fact, calculation agenda totals and amount Blackjack payouts. I must’ve done accept because I was alleged aback a few canicule after to yield the four anniversary course.It was appealing intense. Six canicule a week, seven hours a day in a baby allowance with low ceilings and a dozen Blackjack tables. There were about 100 added humans from all walks of activity demography the advance forth with me and for the aboriginal week, all we did was calculation agenda totals and accept acquaint on the rules and procedures of Blackjack. By the end of the aboriginal week, we were ambidextrous absolute games. Believe me if I say that there is A LOT added to it than you think. I was absolutely destroyed abroad at how abundant there was to know, and how abundant I still had yet to learn.When we accomplished the end of the endure week, there would be the alarming Table Test. If I bootless that, I’d be done. Luckily, we were traveling to be demography it twice, and the best account would be taken. I was in the endure accumulation to yield the aboriginal analysis and I was added than a little nervous. I knew I’d bootless that day for abiding and I collection home cerebration about all the mistakes I made. The next day, I acquainted bigger and knew what it was I had to do in adjustment to pass. If the examiner approved to “trip me up” with the mistakes I’d fabricated the day before, I handled it flawlessly.
I had to delay about a anniversary afore the graduation, and I was actually disturbing my hair out. The accord was that if they alleged me afore then, I’d failed. My dad anticipation it would be agreeable to acquaint me that “someone alleged searching for you” if I’d appear home from getting out. Very funny. NOT. But, back I never got “the call”, I showed up for my affidavit and I was on my way to getting a dealer. I was advantageous abundant to get the area about ten account from my abode and I was aflame to activate what just ability be a life-long and accomplishing career.
