    I just got an out of the blue call from someone who found a 2 year old resume online somewhere and they want me to come in for an interview. It's for a company that has actual benefits and retirement plans, and they are paying more than what I make at this shit hole. Send good vibes my way!!!!

    I am still at work so that might be weird. I felt weird enough scheduling the interview while at work.

    As soon as I got off the phone though my boss informed me he is still thinking about the raise I asked for... You might be a little late buddy!

    I hate when employment agencies pass themselves off as real companies. I went into the interview thinking I was going to meet the actual GC and it was just a head hunter. But she acted like she had a good relationship with the client, it's a company I have heard a lot about and it's actually female owned, which is very rare in the construction industry. There are a lot of projects (military, public type work) that if a company goes in as either female or minority owned they get preferential treatment. So this company has been very active even in this construction lull we have had with the bad economy. I have all of the background they are looking for but I still have to meet with them sometime next week. So fingers are still crossed, they have an amazing benefit package.

    Having spent years working for agencies it surprises me she wasn't more clear with you up front - Hmmm. However if the client sounds interesting to you hopefully you'll get the chance to talk with them directly! Good luck!

    I don't know if this is normal in other states but I have run into this a lot in AZ. It can be very frustrating. At least it's a direct placement and not a temp to perm type thing.

    A combination of factors:

    1) I have held at least 2 and more often 3 jobs concurrently for 8 out of the past 10 years.
    2) If I get into a top 5 school with no funding and a top 25 school with a full-ride merit-based scholarship, I'll always choose the top 25 school.
    3) For grad school, there is the option of working your way through by serving as a Teaching Assistant. Most schools will cover your tuition if you're offered a TA spot.
    4) I am lucky enough to have a family that can help me out financially if I ask. But I try not to ask.

    Second question: how do you reconcile the guilt from going to school for 50 years instead of actually contribution to society?

    It probably helps knowing she'll never end a sentence that badly.

    Ha.

    Randy, since when do you actually care about contributions to society?

    So I was about to get out of my car and deposit a check I got yesterday (which I was thrilled to receive), it was a progress payment for a job I'm currently working on. I turn my car off and my phone chimes, letting me know I have an email. I grab my phone and open up my email and i see it is a message from the company I have been hoping to be employed by for several months now. A few weeks ago they said they will be posting a position online that they think i would be great for, and that they want me to apply when it comes up. It hadn't come up in the time they said it would. When I saw this email I figured it was letting me know things had changed, I wasn't very thrilled to see the name. Upon opening this email, I read that the position is in fact open, but for some reason it wasn't posted online. I proceeded reading and found that I was being asked to send my resume via email and if Monday would be a good day for me to be interviewed.

    Needless to say, I am thrilled! Hopefully, come Monday late morning, I'll have much less reason to be in this line.

    Even though I've essentially been self employed for the last three years and had a decent income(come September), it hasn't been that wonderful a time, especially considering it was a forced venture due to being laid-off. But alas, good news has arrived for me. I stand in this line no more. In my departure, I wish all of you the best of luck.
