Job search update


I found a new job.  I start Tuesday, the day after Labor Day.  So I will end up being out of work just a little over two weeks.  (And when taking into account the fact that I was paid for my unused vacation hours from the job I left, I actually only missed out on a little more than three days of pay, including the Labor Day holiday.)

My new job is at a small-ish, growing private law firm located a 20-minute drive from my house.  The firm opened two years ago with five attorneys who left a larger, long-established local insurance defense firm and in that time has grown to thirty attorneys in ten offices, with the main office the one in Sco.ttsd.ale where I will be working.  They seem to have a firm base of business and a lot of work, and they say they are happy to get someone with my qualifications (not only my legal experience, but my nursing background).

For my part, I am very relieved to have a job again.  I am not overjoyed at the return to working longer hours that will accompany returning to private practice, but I will make it work.  I *am* happy about the pay raise that comes along with returning to private practice.

Now I'm going to try to make the most of the three days off I have left before the weekend and a return to normalcy next week.


  1. That was fast!!! Nice work....congrats! And more money can't hurt :)

  2. So glad you weren't out of work longer! Good luck with the new gig!

  3. Great news!! Good luck with the transition, I hope you like the new job.

  4. I still can't believe how fast that all happened! So much for those house projects... LOL! And it's so true... after everything I've been through since the boys were born, it's made me stronger and more resilient. You really see what are the most important things in life, and that with a strong support system you'll get by.
