I got a job!!!!!!!

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 

I'm absolutely shaking!!!! I just got a job offer!!! I've been out of work since June and getting very discouraged! And depressed. And all I can say is Thank the Lord!

The job is a general office position with a company that deals with motorcycle part sales. It's part time 20-30 hours. I told the gentleman that I was looking to stay around 30 hours. He said it would be 20 at first and if things worked out 30 would be no problem. It's also flexible, but once I've been there a bit they'd try to work out a schedule -AROUND ME! The pay isn't what I was making before, but I expected that and it's not minimum wage either. So I'll start sometime after Christmas. He told me to call him on the 26th and we'd figure out something then!

Now I must go pass out or do a dance or I'm just not sure what! I want to call my Mom but she gets out of work in like 30 minutes so I'm holding off. Already called DH and left my best friend a voice mail too! AHHHH!!!!!

Now I really must get on a normal sleeping schedule. No more staying up till 3-4-5 or 6am!!!!! AAAHHHHH!!!!!!!!

Ok this is a little sad, with the decrease in pay and hours, I'm pulling in more on unemployment.... I think I have about 2 months of that left at this point. But hey, a job is a job!!!!

It's just over 3 miles according to Mapquest, so not bad at all! My last job was about 4.5, just in the other direction.Oh and one more perk, it's less than half a mile from my favorite Italian restaurant!!!!! Oh boy am I in trouble for that!

Congratulations. You've waited so long and I can imagine how frustrating and depressing that could be. This may turn into an even better job than you even realize right now. All the very best to you.

Congrats!! I was out of a job from July 2004 until February 2006. I started actively looking for a new job in August 2005, but it took 6 months to find one!! I had applied there 2 times just to get the point across!

The flexibility thing is awesome, isn't it? My current job I've had since August 2006 is super flexible (and I found out Friday they pay me even if I have jury duty all day!)
