Another Job Offer......

Last Tuesday I received a phone call from a company that I'd interviewed with saying that they were not offering me the job but they were really impressed with me and would like to keep my resume on file in case another accounting position should become available. (Btw, this was the same company my hubby works at and the position was for a Cost Accountant.) It's just as well, my hubby wasn't too sure about us working at the same company. He said he goes to work to get away from me and now he'd have to take me with him. How dare he! :) So then shortly after that phone call, I received another phone call for an interview and they wanted to know if I would be available Friday. (When one door closes, another door opens.) Being I had no commitments that day, I told them I certainly could meet them for an interview and I was WIDE OPEN that day. So what do they do? Suggest an 8:00 interview!!! Are you kidding me??? 8:00 AM! Well, I didn't want to say no just because I was lazy and didn't want to get up that early so I told them that yes, 8:00 works for me! (Note to self - NEVER say my day is WIDE OPEN even if it really is.) So all last week I was dreading Friday. I did NOT want to get up at 6:30! It's GREAT to be able to sleep in. Went I went back to the interview room I found out I'll be interviewing with THREE people in the room at the same time! Oh, YIPPEE!! I prefer one-on-one interviews not three-on-one. Well, it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. It was formal yet informal. It sounded like a GREAT place to work. It's just a small office with 12 employees.

Yesterday I got the call. They wanted to offer me the job. YIPPEE! And this time, I took it! I am an Assistant Loan Officer and the company offers loans to businesses. Currently it's part-time, which thrills me because I wanted the summer off. However, they expect that it will probably go full-time eventually so they wanted me open to that possibility - I told them I want to work part-time this summer and then this fall or at a future date, I'd be willing to work full-time. Oh, and this company offered me $2/hour MORE than I was making when I quit my job to go back to school. Unlike the other job offer that was willing to pay me $2/hour LESS than I was making when I quit my job. I don't start until June 27th so I have another three weeks to enjoy before joining the working world. Then I will be working 8-5 Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

I even got childcare already lined up which really works out great for us. The babysitter is my nephew's girlfriend and lives across the street from us and has a car so she can take the kids to their activities. I was hoping I'd be working W & F because the kids don't have any activities those days so luckily it worked out that those are two of the days they wanted me to work.

Now, I can quit the job hunt! I wish I'd quit stressing out so much because everything always works out in the long run!
