Can I get some job vibes?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I was suppose to start my new job today. However on Monday I found out that the start date has been delayed and there isn't any timeframe of when I'm starting.

I'm freaking right now because I did this entire move for this job and it could take another 4 months before I can start (due to background checks).

B doesn't have a job (yet) and now I don't have a job.

The recruiter is trying to work with me on finding another job in the meantime, but after 3 days no luck.

You have got to be kidding. The company just informed you that after your move???
Why would background checks take so long.
Do you have a contact HR person you can talk to???

Just to clarify, it's not them, its me...or a part of my background. It's a government job and there was a red flag that they need to investigate further before I can start.

I've been joking that its all my time spent on TCS They think I may leak secrets :P

Oh my... You are dealing with it better than I would How are you with computers? Ever thought about working from home? Maybe it could help you even just until you find something you like or get to start the job you moved for? Here's an article you can check out... ABC News: Help! How Do I Work From Home??? They have a list of a few reputable companies to apply through. I did find one on their list that is a fortune 500 company. I wouldn't mess around with them. The others though have some fairly descent opportunities to include tech support, customer service, etc. The pay isn't that bad, but could usually be a little better. At the same time you have no traveling expenses or sitter fees (if you have children). You can choose your own hours and usually can work anywhere from 20-60 hours depending on your schedule They also list some ideas and resources for creating your own product line. If your crafty, artistic etc... maybe you could find a way to work things out for now that way?

Believe me everyone, I AM FREAKING OUT. I just try to joke to cover it all up. I'm just really glad that I don't have to worry about rent until Nov 1 and the utilities until next month.

The stupid thing is that a long long time ago (galaxy far away) I really wanted to work at the FBI. So I purposely avoided all situations that could get me arrested (even in college) and kept my credit score excellent. However there were a couple of sections that could probably be the token for the cause that I didn't think it would be. This weekend B told me about one section that I did fill out that was seen as a red flag and could cause the delay.

I'm just thankful the recruiter is really awesome and is trying to provide me a position in the meantime. If it was a "sorry that's too bad...good luck finding a job" I would really be PO

Oh no! I'm praying things move on and get settled for you! My Mom recently started working at the daycare center on our base and her background check took forever! And she is a military spouce!

I hope they find you something for in the meantime and then get you in the position you moved there for real quick like!

OK the recruiter sent me sample resumes for the area that I want to work in. Actuallly its one of the branches. I was looking forward to the research, but hopefully that will come quickly.

Anyway I just added the buzz words and changed some things to it. Hopefully my resume begins to pop up in more jobs!!!

Nothing yet. although I did receive a reply to a job I posted 2 months ago..however the position is in DC, so unless the provide 100% upfront costs - no way. Besides I'd be in the same position as I am now.
