I took a hiatus from WB after posting this thread to focus on my relationship and our careers and figure stuff out. Happy to say that things have settled and are moving in a direction that is much closer to what we originally set out for.
Boyfriend decided against the Chicago job. He is working with his current company to simultaneously train to be promoted as a business analyst and create his own position as head of a new social media team. I’m very proud of how creative he’s been and how much he’s pushing himself – I think we both got bogged down in despondency from things not working how we’d envisioned, but he and I have both regained our energy.
I’ve also had some luck, FINALLY. I applied to two writing positions and both contacted me almost immediately for interviews. I’m currently waiting to hear about the results of my working interview with one and I had a successful phone interview with a request to come in for an in-person interview next week with the other. I am more hopeful about the second job because it’s very close to what my ideal dream job is and also is *not* contract.
For the time being, we’re staying here in SJ though we may move further up the Bay if he does get transferred to an office in the East Bay and I get this job, which is an hour commute by train from our city.
Either way, things are going well. Thank you so much to those who gave advice and well wishes in my previous thread – that was really helpful and so appreciated. <3
