    Well, I "need" a job. The term "need" of course being relative but there a several reasons that I may elaborate on later but clearly having an income is a positive thing. The opportunity came up for a part-time position at the school I'm still attending. 24 hours per week, Mon-Thur, $30/hr. It's the Evening Welding Instructor. My welding experience is mostly limited to what I did when I took the course. The one I graduated from three years ago. The interview went well but I also had the home team advantage. I know more about how the interviews went because, well, the home team advantage. Now, I don't think the home team advantage got me through this first round alone. One of the three applicants had 30 years welding experience. He apparently didn't interview as well.

    None of this is official. I know the panel voted me through but it will be some amount of time before I know for sure if I'm moving forward.

    Recently left grad school and got a job coding and spotting for projects at a civil engineering firm. Pays pretty well and so far seems like a nice place to work. Managers so far haven't been ********s (plus two of them I knew personally before working here, so..)

    Well good luck. Sounds like a decent part time gig. And money is indeed very very nice.

    I recently moved back home to Kentucky and started a new job that's going well so far.

    You know I'm right outside Fort Campbell, right?

    Anyway, still don't have any official word. I'm anticipating having another interview. We'll see.

    I need to find something new because my current position is actively making me miserable, but the thought of applications makes me want to crawl into a hole and die.

    Well, my wife has found a job in Portland, so hopefully that'll be a good place for me to find something decent, if her career machinations haven't totally ruined my prospects.
