If you’ve been following along at home, you know I lost my job in September 2011. I finished school in May 2012 and finished a (paying) project in September 2012. Since then, I’ve read a lot of books and have pretty well finished all the home improvement projects we could think of except for a few that really need two people and we’ve just been unmotivated or out of time (re: the porch floor).
I’ve accepted a position with a non-profit in the area and I start after my fingerprints clear me with the government (it’s all digital now, how cool). I hope that will be at the end of the month. I will be a contractor for ninety days and then convert over to a full-time employee status. This is mostly so the consulting company that presented me to the non-profit can get paid their fee–the money they make off my back will pay the finder’s fee. I’m hoping when I “convert” the salary will bump up a little as it is less than my last full-time gig.
It may not be my dream job, but it seems no one really wants to talk to me about that so whateves. It will be a very good learning experience for me and the non-profit’s mission is OUTSTANDING. I told the better-half the other day that if they offered me, I’d accept because one of the men on the team has crazy-long hair. And, he made a Star Trek joke in the interview. My people are everywhere.
