I've been in job hunt mode for several weeks now, since my last employer decided that their path was different than mine. Without rehashing That whole situation, suffice to say I've been house-hubbying along quite nicely. Still need to get a better cash flow, however. Unenjoyment only lasts so long, and right now said former employer is playing games with the state, so the budget is becoming an issue.
Thankfully I have a loving wife and a trio of great kids, the mortgage and vehicle payments are up to date and I'm healthy.
I am in discussion with a firm which does field work for the Telecom and Power industry, and I just got back from my pre-employment screening test. I meet tomorrow with the local field supervisor and hopefully start training classes (Paid) on Monday. Wiener, er, Werner actually may have done me a favor. I'll have the opportunity to make more Money with the new company, just a matter of how hard I work. It is a Field job, however so I'll be on the road much of the time. Not the most ideal situation, but I'm willing to trade home time for bigger paycheck for awhile, if it means getting out of debt and a better house down south. Keep your figners crossed !
