So, Now I Have a Job

...in the same lab ... fooled ya, huh? Yesterday I started back here and got the run-down on what things I'll be doing. The thing that makes me most happy is that I don't have set hours--pretty much I can just come in whenever I want, as long as I do the stuff I'm supposed to do. The bad part to that, though, is that now I'm getting paid hourly. BLEH! And, some paperwork didn't get changed (from the previous intermittant worker) so my first paycheck will be less $/hour than I had hoped for. But, we will get the papers figured out for the next one. It still won't be much, but at least it's better than what I'd get just sitting at home ($NO/hour)! It actually feels kinda nice to have stuff to do (not just working on thesis stuff).
Oh, and some positive news: I had another phone interview with another company I applied to in Albuquerque! BUT, that just throws another "what if" into the Job Search Game... no word from the other job interview (the one back before Christmas), but I'm hoping it's just the weather that's preventing them from calling.
I haven't sent in any more applications, but I'm starting to think that maybe I should do just a few more, I mean, that way my chances of finding The Best Job will be slightly increased.
Okay, now that I'm getting paid by the hour, I probably should not be goofing off on the computer! :)

Yes, send out more applications. View it the way single men view dating-- the more opportunities you have, the better the chick (or in your case, check) at the end is. ;)

Congratulations on the job!

I would definitely keep sending out applications.

Congrats, but like the others are saying, you can never rest on your laurels... there is always something better out there if you want it.
