my last day of making fax cover sheets for a living is 1/26
Okay, angry Asian man!
I did. Yesterday. And it feels gooood.
I really lucked out in the new-job department. I'll be working 9-6 (perfect hours for the not-morning me and avoiding rage-inducing South Florida traffic) at an organization too diversified to go into here. Basically, I'll be an administrative assistant doing administrative-assistant type things in a spacious but mostly uninhabited office* (it'll be me, the partners, and a ping-pong table). I'll be able to use my computer and writing skills and, more importantly, my brain. On a daily basis. And for all of this, I get more pay!
Also, there's a Yorkie named Shosha that gets to come to work with her daddy. I hope they let me take her out on walks at lunch. :)
I am so happy that I got it. They got 140 resumes and they picked me.. and that makes me all the more grateful. I finally got to accept a job because I wanted it, not because I needed a job.
Odd bit of info: I just found out that a friend from my last job, Nichole, is interviewing at my current job. For my current job. Weird, huh? I gave her an honest evaluation of the place and she still wants to interview there, so good luck to her.
*Don't worry; I googled the partners. Impressive results.
