Anotherday Posted July 15, 2008 Share Posted July 15, 2008 I want to share my good fortune and hope. I left a very good job five years ago due to trauma on the job. In that time, all I've done is temp here and there and work for eight months at a domestic violence shelter. I've gone through a major mid-life crisis and am approaching 49, so in this day and age finding a job isn't exactly easy, especially for someone with my background and at my age. The good news is there is hope! I rec'd a call today to schedule an appt to make me a formal job offer on Thursday. Woohoo! Now, the money isn't great, and I'm taking a 35K pay cut annually to do this. But, I knew I was looking at this when I went this route and decided to go from business to social services. The beauty is there are benefits and a 403B (like a 401k). Perhaps I am jinxing myself by sharing this, but I am so excited that after such a long dormancy, things can turn around, and I say this for anyone who might feel hopeless and be reading this.
