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,

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.

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!

Who knows? But for now, it's the answer to my prayers ;-)

How wonderful!!!!!
Nov. 8th, 2013 03:02 pm (UTC)
I couldn't agree more ;-)
Nov. 8th, 2013 02:22 am (UTC)
SQUEE!!! I am so excited for you! I hope this is marvelous!
Nov. 8th, 2013 03:02 pm (UTC)
I'm still reeling from the shock - one minute you're at rock bottom, the next halfway to flying out to California!
Nov. 8th, 2013 02:23 am (UTC)
Finally! Great news! Fingers crossed!

Isn't it? I'm over the moon!

Obviously a consequence of you posting about it here... :P

Awesome!!! \o/

Thank you!

(Sorry, for some reason I didn't seem to get notified there were any messages in LJ).

Woo! Congratulations!
Nov. 20th, 2013 08:08 am (UTC)
Isn't it wonderful? Thank you very much!

Perhaps they got my virtual slap? ;)
Nov. 20th, 2013 08:09 am (UTC)
They must have done! Thanks for stepping in ;-)
Nov. 18th, 2013 01:59 am (UTC)
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!
Nov. 20th, 2013 08:13 am (UTC)

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?

    That must have been so hard, on both of you! Now she can settle in and you can relax.

    I feel your pain - it took me weeks to clean Frank's room.

    It must be a relief to have seen her sitting and chatting.

    I wish you well with the house clearing. I'm not sure if this is helpful - but it took my sister and I at least one full day a week for a…

    Oh my goodness! I can just feel that horrible sinking in the pit of the stomach when you realised and there was nothing you could do about it.

    I'm glad the move went so well. It sounds like it might be a great place for her.

    I'm glad things turned out okay! (Other than the rhubarb.)
