My DH was fired 6 weeks ago from his FT job (he has a few PT/seasonal positions) and it’s been quite stressful since then, particularly since we don’t have a lot in savings, he needs dental work done immediately, we moved to NYC less than a year ago, and I’m a grad student.
And today… the good news really started to come in. I started a 7-week FT position at a summer camp, which is the first real job I’ve had in my field (teaching), and has really held us up monetarily (I’m 2 weeks into it now, and getting paid more than I thought I would). I also received an offer to teach at Rutgers University this fall, which I’ve gladly accepted and am super excited about, even though it doesn’t pay well; the experience and line on my resume is invaluable.
The most exciting thing – DH was offered a job today! He’ll start with a 7-day trial period (up through July 12, at which time he has to leave for National Guard duty for 2 weeks) and then we’ll find out if he’s been accepted for the position FT, salaried. He has a really good shot of being hired FT, and it’s a great position. And even if he isn’t hired, the wage for the trial period would hold us over while he keeps looking.
So excited! Just had to share… anyone else have any good news to share?
