Thumbs up Welp ... As of July 1, I'm out of a job. - FINAL CHAPTER!!!

PATIENCE PAYS OFF!!!

I've had two previous threads (original thread, PART II) regarding my employment during 2011. I wouldn't call it a tough year ... but it definitely had "CHANGE" written all over it.

Long story short: 8 months to the day after my initial interview I landed the job I've been wanting for a long time. I am SOOO excited to begin my new job on Monday, December 5th. I know most of the people there, the owners, and the people I'll be working with. The salary is really good, as well as the rest of the package.

Who knows? Might even need to go to CCR next year and celebrate life OUTSIDE of working for a school system. YES!!!

- Just Joe

Re: Welp ... As of July 1, I'm out of a job. - FINAL CHAPTER!!!

Whoa, whoa, WHOA!!!

Starting December 5th?? Make sure you stick to your guns, and get the week before, AND the week after Christmas off!

Congrats and good luck. I went though my "change" years (e.g, stress, "will I lose my house?", etc.) in 2008 and 2009. Starting to feel better, and hopefully done participating in the Great Recession!

I'm glad to hear you've made it to a dream job.

See you at CCR - you're the first official sign up!

This has turned out to be the best thing in the world for me. I'm hoping the same will be true for you.

Pretty sure it's heaven Paul. It will be challenging and hard work, but I am extremely grateful for the opportunity.

Yep ... sounds like CCR is definitely a reality for me again. Might even be on a Beemer ... who knows?

Joe, congrats on the new gig! It is really good news!
I know what it's like to be laid-off and then wait for the offer letter after a round of interviews.
See you in Duluth?
