I got a job! Yes, I did!
It's at a brand new firm. I'm starting out as contract worker for the first month and if everything works out they'll hire me full-time. I accepted the job last Monday and my first day was on Wednesday. I was so tired on Friday from getting used to a regular work schedule that I felt like I'd been physically beat up. A couple of people have already told how happy they are to have me and there's a TON of good work to do. I'm soooo glad to be there and I think my enthusiasm is showing.
When I got off the phone after accepting the job I cried my eyes out. I was so relieved and happy and then they called me again about five minutes later and I had to do my best to sound normal. I'm keeping my fingers crossed but I'm already feeling really comfortable there. I never really felt comfortable at my old job because of their history of firing people.
I'm not out of the woods yet, but I'm getting there. I hope it works out.
