And who did she inherit the worrying gene from?  LOL

Our DD moved home from her job in Washington DC about twenty years ago not knowing how long it would take her to find a new job in Ohio but life in the DC area just got to be too stressful. Thing was her grandpa was making plans to move to Ohio at the same time and was on a waiting list for a nearby senior center.

I was on the verge of having my DD and my DF living with DH and me at the same time.

You've been to my house. You know how (1) we do have the space but (2) it would have been mighty "cozy" to have everyone living here at the same time. LOL

We lucked out DD found a job in Columbus within six weeks and found an apartment right away. She moved out ten days before her grandpa's moving truck pulled into our driveway. My DF lived with us for four months before there was a vacancy at the senior center.

The women at our office joked about Judy's revolving door. Our washing machine and dryer wondered what hit them.

Oh my!  I hope she was encouraged at the responses she received today.  Employers recognize her skills and abilities in her chosen field and she has options!  So often hard working students are worried they put so much into their schooling and training and then nobody offers them a job.  I'll be praying she chooses the right one for her!  And to not worry through to the end!

um, actually compared to DD & DH, I'm a lightweight - seriously.  Of course maybe I've gotten less so after dealing with them and their "worst case" worries.  I think I've told her 3 or 4 times just pay the rent month to month - or put her stuff in storage & come home until she knows where she's going.   So she's out some $$, it's not like she's going to be homeless on the street or starve - we'll always help her if it's necessary.  It is very gratifying for her self-esteem to have a good response from the interviews.  She was "worried" that she'd spend this time & $$$$$ and not be able to find a job.  But it's looking like there is a definite demand even with the dicey health care situation. 




That first pic, he's like, what you want!!  Too cute!!

I remember when my son was going through the same thing.  He put out several applications and interviewed with each.  He accepted one and two days later got a much better offer.  It was so hard for him to call the first place to tell them he changed his mind.  I forgot--what kind of job is she looking for? 

My younger daughter got a job as a lab aide making just enough to have enough. About 4 months in she got a call from a recruiter for a job as a microbiologist for a different company. I encouraged her to just check it out. Long story short she got an amazing job making more than twice the first job in industry. When she explained it to her current supervisor the lady understood and wished her well.
