Job Hunt: CONCLUDED!


Well, it's been a long and frustrating process, but the job search is finally over! 4 months later, several interviews, a few bad words, and more frustration than any one person should have to cope with, and it's finally over. I'll be starting at Novell tomorrow, helping with their online trainings in a sort of tech. support type position. I'm pretty excited about the opportunity as it looks like they will be compensating us fairly well and with good benefits. It's been an interesting period for us since I graduated, as we've been living off our savings, so we feel pretty fortunate during these rough times to once again have a steady source of income. We attribute the finding of such a good job to the paying of tithing, despite our insecurities and reservations about not having a job lined up.

There have been a ton of people who have been pretty proactive about helping me find work, either through networking or referrals. We just want to say thank you to everyone who has made an effort on our behalf. Special thanks to Jason and Jared Conley, Zach and Kathleen Cochran, Amber and Mike Malloy, Leo and Mark Ebbert, Jeff Willis, Megan Griffin, and all others who have passed along helpful information! It means alot to have so many people praying for you and looking out for you, and at the very least it is a huge comfort to know that there are others who are concerned for your wellbeing.

Congratulations! We would have liked to have you out here at Omniture, but their loss is Novell's gain--at least you get to stay close!
