Eiiiiii, I’m so excited, Bees! I woke up this morning to my phone buzzing and quickly threw off my sleepiness when I saw it was a San Jose area code. Picked up the phone to my recruiter from a staffing agency I interviewed with back at the start of the month telling me about an available assignment starting tomorrow, if interested.
I wanted to shout back OF COURSE I’M INTERESTED!!!! But instead I maintained my cool and was super professional and whatnot. After sending her some requested info to pass to the client, she called back in like 10 minutes to say they wanted me.
Score! The assignment is only 3 weeks, but it’s doing what I love (copywriting) and pays quite well AND I get to work remotely from home – which means SO and I can still go on our mini-vacation next week with his parents in San Francisco.
It’s gotten kinda lonely and boring being in the house with nothing to do these past few weeks. I will still be in the house now, but I have a PURPOSE and the potential for more assignments after this. I’m also still applying to full-time permanent positions in the area, but this is going to really give me a boost in the right direction so far as breaking into my field here in Silicon Valley.
