You'll never guess...

...but I've got a job. The job I interviewed for some weeks back, with the company that frustratingly wouldn't let me know what was happening (turns out the HR-manager dealing with the vacancy had gone on holiday). My new manager sent me a text this evening (only it must have been mid-morning where she was), saying - well, this is what she said:

"Hello Hedwig,



I wanted to send you a quick note to let you know that we are preparing to make an offer to you for the Services Support Admin position. Currently I am working on the details of the start date and training schedule. As I mentioned in the interview there is a high probability that the training will take place in our Santa Barbara, CA headquarters. Are you still able to travel?

If so, you may need to work out of our office here for 2-3 weeks. Please let me know if this is still an option for you.



Kind regards,
Debbie"

So - California, here I come!

That is *fantastic* news. Especially after such a let down (though I don't think much of their HR dept letting you fret for so long, but then I often don't find HR all that typical of places I deal with). I'm so glad it came speedily after you were feeling so rock bottom.

Wohooo!

Thank you. I can't tell you how much of a difference it's made to my outlook on life already. Obviously, I'm still waiting for the details to be finalised, but already a weight's been lifted.

Oh Sweetie!! I am so pleased for you. I just wish California wasn't so far away from Maryland.

Congrats on this! I hope this is the job of your dreams!

I'm still reeling from the shock - one minute you're at rock bottom, the next halfway to flying out to California!

Yay! I have a big smile on my face for you.

Wish Santa Barbara was closer. You'll be close (west coast), but a bit far to be able to visit. Darn!

But oh, I am so happy for you!

Thanks!

And if I play my cards right, who's to say I might not come back to the West Coast for a longer stay -- long enough to swing by for a visit one day?
