I had a very successful interview on Tuesday and yesterday, at 8AM, the hiring manager called to say that they wanted me and would begin the process by contacting my references. If all goes well, I should have a firm offer by Monday.
But, the offer is not in Raleigh-wood. Nope, it is in Northern Virginia. Which isn't where I thought I'd end up, but it's a good offer and I really like the organization. Also, I do have some family in the area so Muffin and I won't be totally alone.
All and all, I think that it's kind of a God-send. The lady who contacted me about the job found my resume on the internet and thought I'd be a perfect fit. I agreed to go for an interview and did some research on the net about the organization. It's a non-profit agency and I'm really excited to be working in an area that is helpful to others.
Now we start the process of finding a new house, finding my household goods, enrolling Muffin in a new school and buying a whole new wardrobe of clothes for the business world. Whew, I hope I can find a home for us soon and have plenty of time to get settled before going back to work, but if not - that's cool too. I'm just excited to be employed!
