    Fingers crossed-job possibility

    Hey friends,
    I'm online for a few minutes, and wanted to check in.

    My friends here are aware of my financial situation, so I wanted to let you know I just had a phone interview for a job in my field that would pull us out of the abyss.

    I saw it online, sent my resume and was called back within the hour. Somehow I missed the ad for days, posted on two sites, that I diligently check! (????)

    Anyway, he said they are looking for 3 people for a new contract, and I' one of TWO that are qualified so far.

    Their client has final approval, and they will look at my resume Tuesday, so I'll hear back hopefully by Wednesday.

    If ever I need prayers, crossed fingers and positive vibes to influenece an outcome, this it.

    It's do of die. If I get this, I may be able to salvage our lease. If not, I'll probably be homeless by the end of the week.

    Thanks friends.

    Good luck and God bless!

    Thanks Mike and MJ. I'm so nervous right now I could puke. Going to finish my coffee and internet, then hope on the bike and take the long way home to try to clear my head.

    The prospects of moving because of finances is daunting for everyone, but not insurmountable. Still, not something anyone wants to go through.

    Your struggle one day will end and things will get better. However, many prayers your way in hopes of landing this job.

    I wish you luck Arko! It sounds very promising so far! Keep us posted!

    Great news. Hang in there and knock 'em dead!

    Maybe I've missed it all this time, but what is your field?

    Prayers sent Arko. Now go fishing or something just so you can take the edge off. Relax we have faith.

    Good news. I lost a job back in the 1980s due to the sell out, buy out, merger activity that was so prevalent at the time. It turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me because after almost a year of searching I lucked onto a great job, far better than the one I had lost. Sometimes what seems like the worst of luck can be a blessing in disguise. Here's hoping for the best for you Arko.

    Dang friend, I hope this works out, I'll pray for you cross my fingers and all that jazz. The homeless part really got me...if this doesn't work out I'll do what I can to help you...I don't have a lot, but maybe me and a few others could chip in and save your lease? Not a handout or charity...just a helping hand?
