You're wedding planning, starting a new job & moving during this period?! You must handle stress well
Yeah, its a bit a nuts time.
The job job/move was sort of unexpected....
I've been out in the work force for ~2.5 years now and am still very happy at my current job. My fiance' - Katie, graduated just last December and moved back to her hometown, which happens to be about 25 minutes from where I work, so that was nice. She looked for a job for some time and found nothing - either no interviews or didn't interest her. Eventual she just took a position as a secretary to get some money coming in, which she absolutely hates.... After about 8 months I can tell it just drains her doing something she hates that much so I told her to look for something new where-ever she wants and I follow.... and during the search I'll apply to jobs I felt were "above" me and if something worked out, we would run with that if the location suited her career aspirations of doing Public Relations for a Non-Profit. So the search began....
She was searching pretty heavily in the La Crosse / Fox River area with no luck. Keep in mind her resume looks amazing and she has done leaps and bounds more things than I have to jazz it all up but having a degree in "Organization Communications and Marketing" apparently is pretty worthless. I sent out three resumes to her 30... after a few weeks I had three interviews lined up and she hadn't even had a call back (I felt pretty bad for her). All three of my interviews happened to be for jobs I thought were far above me experience level so even getting a callback was surprising to me.
Anyway, one of the three I instantly threw out of consideration due to the location - their posting was incorrect - and have been running with these other two - both on to a second interview - and this Milwaukee area one is onto the third interview (I would think I'm getting close) ... and during the process of interviews they actually found I wasn't going for what I had applied to be: "Process Engineer - Lean/Continuous Improvement" but was actually interviewing for "Senior Process Engineer - Lean/Continuous Improvement" so that was a nice surprise.
So yeah, lots going on in life but nothing I can't handle (and luckily her dad swooped in to pickup the wedding tab).... except wakeboarding has taken a bit of a back seat during all of this.
He's from Wisconsin I'm sure he sucks enough beers to help with the stress
Its been far too long since my last beer, that is for sure.
This weekend Katie is out of town dress shopping, I'll probably head to Chicago to see an old roomie and catch up on that beer.
