« Part 42: Rediscovered a Lumber Source in CNY (central NY) Part 43 of Tool thoughts series Part 44: Back in the shop (soon) »

Hi gang, at the risk of jinxing myself, I’ve had a bit of good luck finally. I left my last full time job back in August, and have been looking for a better job since then with predictably little success. However the past couple of weeks have seen a change in the job market. I started a new job last week, driving school bus for a local company, and I also got a call back on another job I had applied for, the interview for that went pretty well, and Yesterday I got the call back and a verbal offer from them. I will get the formal offer today.

edit… Forgot to mention what the new job is… I’ll be doing courier work delivering prescriptions to nursing homes from a centrally located commercial pharmacy. (as opposed to a public pharmacy, this one solely distributes to institutions).
SO the light at the end of the long dark tunnel has appeared, now I have to make something of it!

Looks to be a decent opportunity to make some money, and will also allow me shop time, between the two jobs I might actually get a couple of new toyls later this year!

Thanks! I honestly wouldn’t have taken the bus job had the other one come up first, however I’ll soldier on and do both for awhile, times are tight and as the song goes… I owe, I owe so off to work I go!

so much for that idea… the 2nd job didn’t Lose me (much) money, but it isn’t making what was inferred either, so I’ve put in notice and will try for something else.

I hate it when potential employers outright lie about what they intend to do, etc.

... you’re better off without them… I don’t think you would want an employer like that…

Just keep plugging away…
