BEES. I’ve been on break from college for the past week, and I’ve been going to tons of interviews. They all seem to really like me, but I can’t start until mid-May because I go to school pretty far away, so I haven’t got any of the positions. UNTIL… I happened to run into my grandma’s friend at lunch yesterday, and today she got me a job at a call center for a heating and air conditioning company!
Best part? Eleven bucks an hour, full time!! I know that’s petty change to some of you, but minimum wage in Ohio is $7.40, and I’m a poor college kid. So $11.00 an hour working 40 hours a week is a BIG DEAL to me right now!
OH and my darling, sweet, amazing, intelligent fiance got called back for a third interview for an interview at a major financial investment company. The internship is EXTREMELY well paid with a huge opportunity to get hired from the program. They started out with 600 candidates and now they’re down to 75, and they are hiring 50! I am so, so proud of Mr. Fish. Seriously. We find out next Thursday if he gets it!!!
Just sharing the joy :))

Yay!! So exciting!! And I agree with the PP’s… $11 an hour is really good, especially considering the economy! The job I currently have is the first job I ever worked where I was making more than $11 an hour for 40 hours a week and I am a year and a half out of college. CONGRATS!! And congrats to your Fiance too… I hope he gets it! Keep us posted 🙂
