    Employed again!

    Well, after 14 months of unemployment, I got a job in January. Unfortunately, I made a very big mistake, and lost it in April. While the mistake was my fault (I accept responsibility for my actions), it was caused by the pressure I was under to increase my speed. The mistake was corrected, but that didn't matter. I hadn't seen much in my field so far, pretty much like last year. The, a week ago Friday, I got a phone call from an agency, and I was asked if I was interested in a locum tenens position (locum tenens is basically a short term medical job). I said sure, and sent them the required documents. It's for 2 months, with an opportunity to extend, and also the possibility to go full time. I was accepted by the client, and I've been approved for their malpractice. I start tomorrow. As far as the possibility to go full time, clinics usually like me, so I feel that I'll have a good shot at it. And, even if not, I'll at least be able to replenish my funds. So, I'm pretty happy right now.
