Found a job

I've been looking for a summer job for months now. I've interviewed at maybe 8 different places. I'd been getting a bit discouraged, because I have good grades, yet no job. My classmates, for the most part, all have work. School got out two weeks ago, and I've been babysitting Peter, doing chores around the house, writing a paper for a law review competition, and watching Buffy. And I'd been getting a little bit bored, not to mention frustrated.
This morning I interviewed with a firm downtown. And they hired me this afternoon. I start tomorrow. Good pay, I like the attorneys there (the three I met, anyway), and a job that interests me (mostly pharmaceutical class actions). Most importantly, a chance to see how law firms work, a chance to learn new skills, and a chance to use what I've learned at my first year of law school.
Like with so many things, the wait was worth it.

That's awesome. So many people are struggling to find jobs right now...my husband was looking for a new position; a brother in law, and both my brothers were all seeking summer work; and another brother in law has just been laid off. It seems like everybody I know has been job hunting...it's nice to be able to cross a name of the pray-for list. :)

Congratulations! That is awesome. Every hire is a big success as I see it. Btw, two weeks is not that long to be out of school looking for a job.

Yay! I'm relieved for you (and wish my job search had only been 2 weeks--I'm still searching, applying, and testing). This isn't a volunteer position, right? That's so great that you found a job in your field that will give you the experience you need for the future.

What does that mean for coming out to Utah? Regardless, congratulations! Having a good job and taking care of your family is the most important thing.
