    Over the moon that I have secured a new job!

    Going from an alright job, to a nightmare job, to now a really great one all in the space of a few months! Bit of a whirlwind experience but very relieved everything has worked out :D

    Hired Today, Starting February 4th.

    That's about it. A smallish company, in the Sales department, 40+ hours per week. I wish it started tomorrow, for my sanity's sake, but am glad that at least I have this to look forward to. I gave up an income nearly a year ago to care for a relative in almost all of his last...

    I Just Got A New Job.. Yay!

    Ok so I had a second interview today at an internet cafe. $9.00 an hour for only maybe 10 to 15 minutes away from me is pretty good. My last job was an hour away for only 8 an hour. Well, they called later and decided I would be one of the two people that they were hiring! :) I'm...

    I got a new part time job.

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

    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.

    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 😌

    Had my first day at work today,

    and I really can't decide if I like it or not. I loved the coworkers and I think we will fit very well together. BUT the company is slacking in technology and store condition and I don't want to be promoted within at ALL. So I feel like what's the point in staying...we shall see...

    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.
