Skip to comments.DAUGHTER FOUND A JOB!
Posted on 07/14/2011 10:25:57 AM PDT by SWAMPSNIPER
Mary starts next week and my son in law has 2 interviews for jobs he is thoroughly qualified to do.
Things are ecstatically chaotic around here today, we were almost looking for a nice bridge to live under.
Is that bridge still available? My wife is looking for a job, after battleing breast cancer for the past few years and I had to take a 20% paycut this week in order to keep my job.
Good news is always a welcome respite! Great for your family - woohoo!!!
Both my kids have jobs.....but I'm still partially helping my youngest. She's still in college....
Sounds like things are turning your way, great news!
Excellent news. Fingers crossed for son in law.
If you’ve found the ideal bridge, we might be needing it come the first of the year.
What a good day for great news :)
Congrats to all; may God’s blessings
continue to rain upon your family.
Good news indeed.
What part of China? :)
She did unpaid volunteer work for two years and just got a part time job.
What a crazy economy!
Excellent news! All the best to her....and much good luck to him!!
You wouldn't stay there long, the traffic noise would drive you crazy...I have a crawl space you're free to inhabit if worse comes to worse. You might not like our winters tho.......
Praise God for your news. Been there myself ... the O-conomy doesn’t make it easy.
God bless you swampsniper.
Once she gets a couple of years under her belt, she will be golden. My cousin-in-law runs a practice and he is constantly finding mis codings, and mis-billings. His old records person was costing him tens of thousands a year. That person is gone, but a good one is worth their weight in gold.
Good luck to her.
Funny you mention the medical field. I was talking with one of my cousins this morning, she is a RN, and the subject came up that I had heard the medical field was booming or was the next great boom, etc. She told me no way. She explained the medical field has so many graduates out of work, and I said basically that I thought with all the baby boomers, that they were predicting such a need for medical staff.
She said that for years, many many women in the medical field worked part time, nurses, nurses aids, medical records, hospice, elderly care, etc, but with this economy, their husbands have been laid off, so they have been going full time, and the companies that employ them are taking advantage of those wanting to go full time to cut part timers, but this also means that those recently graduating have no jobs, because there is a glut of experienced people in the medical field.
She also said that many doctors offices have closed over the last year. I told her that I keep reading that is a myth, and she said “no way”, many many of the older practitioners have retired this last year, especially where she is at in Arizona, and that has also contributed to medical personnel being out of work.
Also, she said it really really helps to be bi-lingual, Mexican or Filipino, and those folks are coming from both countries with certificates in hand (that they get from Mexico and the Philippines) and are willing to work with no benefits, and at half the pay of the union counterparts who are American.
This is her report from Arizona, I’m in the Midwest, and I really don’t know much about our area, or the rest of the nation, just what she has related to me about her geographical location.
I was getting scared, all my life finding work was just a matter of pounding the pavement for a day or two. I’m almost 69, never drew unemployment once, although I had to take some less than choice jobs for a while. Sometimes I even had 2 of them at once, LOL, but they were there to be found!
Wow! So glad to hear the great news!!
Congrats to her and to your whole family!! :)
It’s funny how a post from someone I’ll never know, about something good, more than makes up for all the crappy news I read about.
You got that right Sporke!
It is even better when you can share it with someone who has the same values and beliefs as you.
Even this wasn't easy because a lot of other college grads had decided to do the same thing. She finally got a position in January of this year, and left for her assignment in April. She is enjoying herself, but, this is not what she had imagined she would be doing.
She was ready to be out on her own, starting her life; but, instead she found herself in limbo (with a whole lot of other people). Things were a little tense at home at times, but, she seems to be enjoying her experience in Japan. (She is 5'8-1/2" and the expression on the kids' faces and the, more subtle, looks from adults has been amusing to her. One of the ways they teach small Japanese children English is thru songs which have motions attached to them. One had them jumping up, and Kerry could touch the ceiling when she did that. The kids were like OOOh, Ahhh. They were impressed.)
“”all my life finding work was just a matter of pounding the pavement for a day or two. Im almost 69, never drew unemployment once””
DITTO! How times have changed! Reminds me of myself - moving to CA from NY State in 1957, not knowing a soul there and finding a job on my first day out at “Douglas Aircraft” in Santa Monica. That should tell you how “old” I am... After that I moved to Sacramento and walked from business to business in the downtown area and was hired at Bank of America immediately. From there it was a matter of changing jobs when OFFERED other jobs due to contacts at the bank. Never a problem finding work.
Yes, things have changed dramatically - especially since the bozo took office!!! Here we find ourselves - AGAIN - talking about how bad things are just like we did in the ‘70’s during the Carter years.
All I can say is I pity our kids and grandkids living in a country he has managed to “transform” to his liking!
Freepers are like family to me.
My son just started a job at Nissan in Smyrna, TN the other day. This is by far the best job he has ever had.
Great! Congrat’s and Best Wishes!
I will pray for you and your wife. God Bless and Best Wishes.
I read this on nursing blogs too. However, here in SE Pa., there are many nursing jobs listed just in my small local paper-The Delco Times.
I know the feeling. Hubby has been back to work 2 weeks now. Years of instrument experience and he fought for a job driving a dump truck. As a 60 yr old with a pace maker he feels great to have even gotten this job. My goal is to pay off all existing bills (not so much really) and stockpile as much as I can and hang on.
I work in the medical field...And around here you can get a job. Might not be the job you wanted, might not be the pay you wanted, and might be a long way from your home. But you can get a job.
Way back when..I was in school...Hospitals were recruiting us, left and right. Then about a year or two after I got hired...they were having lay-offs..and people were worried.
Of course with ObamaCare staring us down...no one knows what's going to happen.
Great news!! Now we need to get my girlfriend a job!
Wonderful news! Congratulations to the whole family. May you all sleep well tonight!
Woohoo! Congratulations to her, and good luck to him!
Yes, I'm believing there is a glut of experienced workers in many fields and our youth is suffering. Two nephews who graduated college have not found gainful work yet either.
So much for the Stimulus.
Exactly...major hospitals in New Hampshire are talking about HUNDREDS of layoffs...trouble with getting Medicaid funds from the state...
Very happy for you and yours.
It can happen, even in this economy. Glad it happened for you and yours!
That is truly good news! Good luck with the Son-in-law!
How ironic is it that the more cushy the libs make benefits and rules (like minimum wage, health insurance, mandatory perks), the more employers turn to basically slave labor (abusing illegals or new legal immigrants)??
All this socialist Focus on the Rights of the Worker has hurt every single worker!!!!
It hurts the good American worker (who can't get a job) and the illegal abused worker (who is treated very poorly) BOTH!
