Not interested in a commute, I love be able to go home for lunches or do banking or whatever so I have been keeping my eye out for jobs that fit my skillset, which is hard to do in the community I live in. One caught my eye in August, so I redid my resume, sent it in and heard nothing. I had given up, then last week, I get an email asking if I can do a phone interview... so I take my car and park it on a dead end road and take the call... after I was done, I spent all weekend kicking myself for the things I should have said. It has been so long since I've had an interview and am terrible at selling myself, so I was sure I wouldn't get a call back. Well what do ya know. I come home today to a voicemail. They want to do a second interview! I am so excited, even if this is as far as it goes, I am just thrilled that I apparently said something right the first time!
    I got the job!! I start Nov 4. Hardest part was giving my notice at my current job this morning... gonna be a long and busy two weeks, but I am so excited to start something new...

    Congratulations, Hyper! That's TERRIFIC news. A change can be energizing, and that's so great that you won't have to do a 45-min commute come January.

    Oh, what fun! It's always exhilarating to go in a new direction. Glad you won't have to make that commute every day.
