    Employed!


    I start tomorrow and will do 40 hours a week in perpetuity, unless the fickle finger of fate screws it up. Gotta be there 8:30AM...will be second programmer for small family owned business at about 2/3rds of what I was making before, but, hey, I took it in a millisecond.

    Re: Employed!

    Congrats are in order Beep I know what it's been like too, unemployed for just over 2 years, with no unemployment either. I just landed a consulting gig, that I hope turns into full employment. They didn't want to opt for the FT yet, because of all the taxes involved. It's easier to pay me on a 1090 and have me deal with the IRS at the end of he year. This is 25% of where I have been, and I didn't hesitate to grab this opportunity either. I just afraid that I will develop the sales and the operation set-up and get the boot in the end.

    If that is the case you'll be seeing me on Americas Most Wanted, and the following week on Cops

    Re: Employed!


    Thanks! It isn't perfect...no insurance, but good IRA. I'm going to have to look for some good group insurance with them, or elswhere.

    It was a total of... 2 years, 3 months, 28 days. I did take 6 months (10K) unemployment initially, but did not re-up with the extension when I could have. I figured I got out what I put in over the years.

    Re: Employed!

    Hey beep, Congratulations on getting the work. I'm glad you have it, and like you said it is a lot better than
    being out of work. Hope it works out good for you.

    I have been down that road (Being out of work) and it is not fun. Twice I had good jobs that I considered
    staying with until retirement, but the first one went bankrupt, and a few years later the other sold the
    business and let all the help go because the new company just wanted the equipment. It can be quite a
    struggle getting back on your feet again.

    Spart that sounds good from you, too. glad that you have some work now , too From the looks of your jobs,
    it looks like both of you have lots of smarts.

    Wishing you both the best of luck with your new employment

    Congrats Beep!!! Look on the bright side. You might be able to make contacts that'll lead to a better offer or at least maybe some consulting contacts. At least you're on the flat now, not going uphill wondering if it'll ever get any better! Again Congrats!
