Update on the job situation
Zia McCorgi by Cooner
Last week I talked to my future boss and we had agreed on a tentative start date of the 28th of March. The HR department still needed to send me my files and paper work including my contract. I was contacted by my boss yesterday. She informed me that she has just been handed a hiring freeze for the rest of the fiscal year. She has promised me the position and that I will start on July 1, 2011. I admit such promises are worth the paper they are printed on however I am still remaining positive.

Several people I talked to after that told me this happens sometimes and not to be worried. One very close contact and expert told me he was surprised that they were taking me before July 1st when he had first heard about this. I am still waiting on my contract but in the meantime I'll follow some other job leads, make some other calls, apply to other positions and start packing up my things.

I was also told by my mother that I should look at this as a gift to get some writing done. So i will. *sips tea*

I have not bought any tickets, invested in an apartment or made any other major financial choices, and any money I did spend on credit can be paid with what I do have. So this is not a negative in that regard.

I am still very positive about this position.
