    YES, finally got one...

    Today is one great day guys! Let me fill you in. First off, I have been laid off since September. I found out just how tough the job market is at the moment. All of my experience has been in the financial industry and this was not the time to be out looking for a position. Anyway, over the last 7 days I interviewed with a total of 6 members of upper management in this particular department. Today I received a call from HR extending me an offer for a management position there! To say I was happy is an understatement!!! It will be a raise of $10,200 from my last position and this will be my first experience as a manager. Have wanted to put that on my resume for a little while now. I haven't stopped smiling! It is only two blocks from where I did work so I can meet my old friends for lunch still. Things always work out... keep that in mind if you are having trouble with your job search. You guys have enabled me to keep my sanity over the last few months by giving me something to keep my mind busy and I thank you for that! There is something to be said for staying positive!!!

    I would say that its fantastic news. I was out of work on three occasions and each time I found another, but always at less money. Each time I worked myself back up to as much or more. Nowadays it doesn't matter - been retired for 9 years. Congratulations - now go buy another gun.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    I feel like I just won the lottery. ha! Like they say... I better go buy a ticket. The time off was nice for about a month but I am SO ready to get back at it. Never thought I would say that but I feel like a penned up animal and I need to be set free.

    kingdaddyoh, the position is actually right across the river in downtown Cincinnati. It's about a 76 mile round trip drive for me but I've made that same drive everyday for 8 years now so I call it my "think time". Gives me a chance to unwind a little bit from work before I get home. It's a trade off for sure. All the jobs are downtown but I won't give up the peace of quiet of living in a farming community. (besides there's something to be said for being able to shoot off your back porch, right? ha!)

    It was so odd I thought... I originally got interviewed for a temporary clerical position that I was hoping had the possibility of going permanent (I needed A JOB) and after speaking with everyone there I come out with this. You just don't have a clue what the future will bring you, do you? Appreciate all the kind words guys!!!!!!
