So, I went to my 2nd interview today and I liked the guy. I could see myself working for him. The interview went really well and he gave me a call around 5:30 p.m. to offer me the job. How exciting!! Seriously, he said that over 160 people applied for this position. That's how bad the market is out here! Half of the town is looking for work.
So, I talked to him about the salary and told him that I really want the job, but the salary was just a little too low. So, he gave me a dollar more and he said that after 90 days if I'm doing well, he'll give me some more money! YAY! So, I accepted his offer and I start working on Wednesday.
I'm psyched! I'm so happy to finally get out of the house and start being a productive member of society again. I've been laid off since January. I'm bored! I need to work and what a confidence booster. I beat out 160 people. Can you imagine? woo hoo!
I'm still hoping the steakhouse comes through with a part-time position for me so that I can make even more money.
Tomorrow is my last day being unemployed so I better enjoy it. Maybe I'll go lay out at the pool or something. Who knows.
Gotta go watch the Dancing with the Stars Season Finale'. Go Gilles.
