I have a JOB!
« on: February 27, 2012, 07:57:30 AM »
Six weeks of hardcore job searching and interviewing and I have a job!  All of the positions I interviewed for told me up front that they were interviewing 10+ people.  As a new graduate I'm a liability and I was competing "off season" (for new grads) with people that experience.

I landed a job!!!  Now, it's only for 3 months - boo hiss - but it might become a full year contract.  Also, my new boss knows I need a year long contract so she's happy to be flexible with scheduling so I can continue to apply and interview.  Plus she's given me a three week notice clause in the contract.

WHOO HOO I get to start paying down my debt before the grace period expires!!!!

Small potatoes for some but very exciting for me.

Hey, that's fantastic: any source of income is a good one. I'm jobhunting at the moment for a 3-month or so contract, to push me through to the summer, so I know how the searching and the interviewing can drag on.

You've done well to get it all cleared and out the way in six weeks!
