[Now that he realizes he is likely staying in Union for the long term, Kurapika decided to finally get a warp band, and studied the manual like a good boy. The question now is how to introduce himself, a job is needed of course, he could frame it like a job-seeker request, but that might come off as being a little desperate. He obviously can't tell the whole truth, people have a habit of wanting to help and he doesn't need help, help tends to interfere.

Pairo chirps at him about overthinking]

You're right... I'm not good with people. So just keep it simple?

Puuu!

Should I turn up the volume so you can hear it better?

Boo! Boo!

[The video flickers, and the blond bows his head before he speaks]

Hello. My name is Kurapika, I am a recent arrival - some of you might have met me before, others have not. I have found a place to stay for the time being, but I am seeking employment, are there any places hiring on at least a part-time basis, I do have some specific needs to be met, and I'm unsure how accommodating some jobs will be for it.

[There's a long silent pause, as he tries to consider what else to say - that or he had forgot to turn it off. He seems to start]

I can answer questions, or go into more detail about my request as needed, and is there anything in particular someone new to the city need to know?
incousinswithyou: not that this is a new thing (I know something you don't)

Welcome to Union. My name is Michiru. [here's a small smile]

You might have to be a bit more specific than that. What sort of skills do you have?

[if you're not careful, she'll try to hire you as a Bidoof sitter.]
incousinswithyou: who was that hussy again (that's funny)

[personal profile] incousinswithyou 2016-05-23 01:32 am (UTC)(link)
[hmm. She looks a bit contemplative.]

You really could fit in anywhere with that set of skills. [even in the Swords of the Savior, somebody has to do admin stuff.] Is there anything you'd like to do in particular?
incousinswithyou: my cousin (let me present to you)

[personal profile] incousinswithyou 2016-05-23 02:59 pm (UTC)(link)
I see. [smile] Well, I wouldn't mention that to your future employers if you plan to stay less than six months.

[training and retraining new employees wastes both money and time] Where do you plan on going, if I may ask?
incousinswithyou: (DO go on)

[personal profile] incousinswithyou 2016-05-27 03:34 am (UTC)(link)
I see. I wish you the best of luck.

In the meantime, how would you like to babysit a Pokemon for me? You can have as many or as few hours as you'd like.

Hi, Kurapika. Welcome to Union. I'm Minako.

For jobs, that might depend on the needs you have to meet. However, a lot of jobs are pretty accommodating to trainers. Is that what you're talking about?

[Minako was a little curious about these "specific needs", and, while she couldn't directly offer a job, she could perhaps help him find something.]

What kinds of skills do you have?
child_of_luv: (Calm Smile)

[personal profile] child_of_luv 2016-05-27 03:08 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, I see. So you would need to work out some sort of schedule so you can have someone come help while you're out? That makes sense.

[She nodded.]

Well, I'm sure something like that would be taken into consideration.

What kinds of skills do you have?
