Finally got a job!
« on: Jan 24, 2011, 08:35:16 AM »
Well I finally got a job after getting laid off at the end of October.  I know many people have been out of work way longer than I, but this shows that the job market is really turning around.

I'm taking a job in the Riverside, CA area servicing sterilization equipment in hospitals for a company called Belimed.  They're setting me up with a work van, company card and stuff to set up my own home office!  I'm really excited since this means the wifey and I can finally sell our condo and buy a house since housing is so much cheaper up there than S.D.   - Of course this does mean that we will be moving into my parents house temporarily until our condo sells and we buy a house.

Thanks.  I'm going to be selling off or giving away a bunch of stuff before the move.  Need to sell my '87 2wd pickup soon too......

Congratulations and good luck!

but this shows that the job market is really turning around.

I think this is funny...it shows how personal perception is! Last week...when you didn't have a job, the market was in the tank. Now that you have a job...everything is coming up roses! I guess it's all in who you ask and when you ask them!

Again...congrats!

Congrats man, good thing you didn't jump the gun on buying your own company rig!

Yeah, no joke Nate.  I'm probably going to buy a '05 or '06 tundra quad cab once we get into a house though.  I won't be worried as much about mileage if I hardly ever drive it.

I don't know how many of you guys believe in the power of prayer, but God is definately setting things up nicely for us - things that are definately out of our control.  Example: the 5 yr. freeway extension project with on ramps and off ramps that are close to our condo is going to be open about the same time we list our condo for sale - which should mean an increase in property value!

My thoughts exactly!!


Congrats on the new job, hope all goes well... and that your condo sells quickly so you can get out of your parents' house sooner!

My thoughts too Stocker.  I love my parents dearly, but I'm 34 and married now and I've been out of the house since I was 17 - and they can be overbearing at times.  I think I can deal with them, but I pray my wife has enough patience  :crossed:, otherwise it's going to be a living hell for a while  :maddest:

I don't believe in prayer myself but never try to tell others they shouldn't, though I do think people don't give themselves enough credit for their own hard work and determination  :thumbs:

Hey BUDDERS where in Riverside? I've got a house in Hemet that may be available to rent and maybe sell. Let me know.

Rocksurfer, we are primarily looking at Murrieta or Menifee for houses, mainly because my wife wants to transfer locations for her job and they have locations in Murrieta - plus my parents live there.  Thanks for thinking of us though!

Canyon Lake is just West of Menifee, pretty nice area there too. My daughter lived in Menifee for a while not too bad there either.

I might check out Sun City too but I heard that Sun City and Menifee are becoming one.
