Got a new job! Mixed feelings, but at least not unemployed!!May 16th, 2018 at 12:58 pm
I have been on a few interviews in the last month. The one that I really liked the job and location of was 2 weeks ago. Still no response, but this is typical for the industry/company. At times, you won’t hear back for 2 months.
Last Thursday, I interviewed at another position with a company that is in a less desirable location. The company is a bit in flux in changeover – they are moving sites from other cities to my state to put all the talent in one area. I was offered the job on Monday. I took it, but am still continuing to look for the right job for me.
Pay is good, Time off is low – 18 TOP days (Sick & Vacation combined). The commute is rough and long.
My last day at my current position is 5/24. I start the new job 5/29. So I will get to bank my severance. That makes me happy.
I am a little sad about taking this position. However, I plan on making the most of it! It’s a job and it pays me and I will not be unemployed! I say that’s good news. Who knows, maybe I will go in and love the job after all.
That being said, I am still looking!!!
