It’s sketchy for sure. But I dont need the stress of taking on such a financially well backed company.


#45

#46

#47

#48

Sadly though it was the first time I really felt like drinking in the last 36 days. The booze was whispering in my ear “you did a great job! You should celebrate.”

I stayed strong though don’t worry, no resets yet. I went to our local communities food truck night instead.

Congratz!!! That is awesome about the job.

I know about thoughts turning to drinking. I get the let’s celebrate thought from time to time. Like you I’m smart enough to remember that is not a good idea lol


#51

Aaahhhh I am SO happy for you! Congratulations, you earned this job, they are so lucky to have you!


#52

Congratulations!! I hope it’s a good, fresh start for you!


#53

3 interviews today, wish me luck! :four_leaf_clover:


#54

Knock 'em dead! :muscle:

(But… Not literally. That usually makes a bad first impression.)


#55

More interviews!! Yay! What happened w the other offer?


#56

It’s still on the table


#57

Holding out for something special? It’s great if you’re shopping around. It’s so easy to jump on the first offer when there may be a better fit hiding out there.

Also, how are you finding/applying? I think I’ve exhausted Indeed. :-/


#58

Indeed, glassdoor, careerbuilder, edjoin (only for schools and mostly just California) your state, county, and city should have job postings… what field are you in?


#59

I’m so excited that you have so many options! What an awesome thing to come out of a really heartbreaking situation!


#60

I also recommend always using a personalized cover letter and making sure it and you look as professional as possible, but make something about them stand out. Like today I wore red heels…


#61

Unfortunately I’m a physicist in a pretty specialized field. So the well isn’t very deep anywhere I look, even while I’m trying to make a sidestep to industry. The latter thing is the hard part.

Congrats on coming out of the gate so strong! Will be excited to hear where you land. Anything exciting today?
