    Unemployed for 11 months,

    1,173 interviews later I've finally got a halfway decent position. After an industry bubble last year it was impossible to find a similar job... So I get to start back at the bottom in a new industry 😌

    Maybe not the best but I do think I can do it and at least I will get a paycheck instead of none.:)

    So I used to have a job

    I was so depressed without work.

    I couldn't find the right job for me. My career went down the wrong path. But I didn't give up. I kept pressing on and somehow I got a job I never thought I'd be considered for. God has truly blessed me even though I thought all hope was lost. I'm glad I didn't give up.

    So Happy I Could Just About Die. Or Scream. Or Scream and Then Die.

    That title pretty much sums it up. I'm going to be making more money doing something I love, and I don't have to do selling of any sort and I don't have to do customer service. To hell with Rollaids. Relief is spelled J-O-B.
