I have a job!!!!

18 months of unemployed hell… IS OVER!!!

Starting Monday I am the assistant to the director of the Wisconsin Center for Education Research, affiliated with UW Madison here in town. Even better, the director will be traveling for almost two full months (starting Monday), which takes care of one third of my probation period right there. :stuck_out_tongue:

I’m sure I will have plenty to learn and plenty to do until he returns.

::Happy dance::!!!

Congratulations, and good luck!

Great news. As one who has shared this experience a few times, albeit 10 months was the longest for me, I know exactly how it feels.


That’s wonderful; congrats! :smiley:

Congrats, Boyo Jim! Hope it goes very well for you.



Congratulations! I’d throw confetti but it would make a mess. Getting a job after a long stint of unemployment sure feels like stepping in out of the cold, doesn’t it? Good for you!

Great news. All the best with the new job :cool:

Congratulations. It’s a good feeling to land a decent job after a long stretch of unemployment. I know all about it.


Great news!! Congrats!

Congratulations! :slight_smile:

Woo hoo!!! Congrats!

Congrats. Nothing makes you appreciate a soul sucking job like not having one. :wink:

Congrats! That’s fantastic!

WooT! So happy for you!

I’m pretty sure I heard the director during the interview muttering about a hot tub on the roof. I am going to make that happens for him before he returns from his travels. :stuck_out_tongue:

Congratulations! :: throws confetti, goes :stuck_out_tongue: @ Opal ::

Be sure to write up your on-the-job stories for us.

Excellent, dude! This alone should cause the market to rebound, n’est ce pas?

Wow is it ever nice to hear good news on the employment front!

Congratulations and best of luck, Boyo!
