I got a job!

I don't normally write very much about personal matters here, but I'm so happy and relieved I had to tell everyone I possibly could.

After six months of unemployment I finally got hired at a decent job. I just found out this morning. Great working environment and great benefits (to a 24 year old, at least). I'm thinking of taking out a billboard.

My condolences. I'm trying to find a job also, not too hard though cause I like being able to sleep till noon and watch DVDs when ever I want. Although I would like to eat sometime this week. It really is a tough choice.

I'm going to be the office manager/assistant for a small design company.

Is this like rioting when your home team wins a game? How about doing something safer like turning over a police car?

congrats on the job, being on unemployment while relaxing really starts going downhill after you receive your last check!

I was unemployed for over a year, getting a job is like a lease on life........yep and then after a while you start waking up not wanting to work.

Anyway congrats dude.

Congrats! Sounds like a cool environment as well. Be thankful you didn't land one at a large corporate law office; you would want to quit after your first month.

Lucky you. I'm going on my third month of unemployment. I really am surprised I haven't had any job interviews yet. I've been with my old company more than 10 years.....I guess I'm just asking for too much.

Congrats - I'll (hopefully) be posting the same thing in a couple of weeks! It's been 8 months for me, but I've been fortunate enough to have some freelance work going with a few companies.
