Well That Didn't Take Long...

I'm officially employed again! Through a chance meeting with a former co-worker this week I heard that another co-worker was the GM at a nearby bike company. I got on their website and saw that they had an opening that matched my skills. So I planned to write a cover letter in the morning and send in my application.

It turns out they were faster than I. That evening I got an email from their HR Director. We agreed to meet on Wednesday. I had four interviews that day and another two on Thursday. Today they made me an offer and I accepted it. Starting Monday I'll be the Executive Assistant to the President of this company.

Sweet!

And...phew!

Congrat on your new job!
I love my specialized bike - this fall it will be 10 years old. I use it about 8 or 9 months of the year.

That is fantastic! Congratulations! And what a great place to work. My husband has a Specialized - his favorite bike, even more so than his made-in-Wisconsin Trek.

Congrats! I'm glad you didn't have to pull up roots and move back here to face the drought of work on this coast. I'm still unemployed after 5 1/2 months, which is a scary sort of first for me. Glad that you got to bounce back so quickly!
