A New Start

As a number of you already know, Neil and I have both been job hunting recently. With major cutbacks in pay and hours, among other factors, we both realized that our current work situation was NOT ideal. Neil is still going to school, so getting a full-time job logically fell on my shoulders. Neil sent out an email on Monday afternoon letting friends and family know about our job search, with a vague hope something might come out of it. Well, Tuesday morning, I received a phone call from a marketing company that just happened to be hiring RIGHT NOW (as in, if Neil had sent that email one day later, I would've been too late), and they did a phone interview, had me take a computer test online, and then called me within 30 minutes to schedule another interview that day. It all kind of went by in a blur, and I tried not to get my hopes up, but this morning I found out that I got the job! (This would be the WORST story ever if I didn't.) So, I start Monday. Due to creepers on the Internet, I'm not going to say where I am working now, but it is a full-time job at an internet marketing company. My official title is Internet Marketing Specialist, (ha ha, whatever that is, I'll find out on Monday) and I now get to work normal business hours. Hurray! I finally get to use my degree in Marketing... three years after graduating. :) Neil is still looking for graphic design work, so if anyone has anything in mind, please let us know. Thanks for everyone's support, and wish me luck! :)

Thank goodness I don't have to work in fast food!
