It's been a while since anything has been 'updated' on the car, and as some of you know it's because I was 'downsized' way back in June. Well I received some very good news this morning- I finally got another job!!!
I've been interviewing for a while & things were starting to look good- but I didnt want to say until I was absolutely positive.
With the holidays coming & my unemployment benefits almost over, I was really starting to worry- was afraid I'd have to sell the wheels off cheap or part out
Thankfully, it didnt come to that....and my new position looks to be a lot more interesting & at a very stable (non-dot.com) firm.
I wanted to share the news on here, because many Mk4 people did their best to look out for me- some gave me info on job openings at their company, some even took my resume to their boss. I appreciate all the help big & small- and I wish anyone else out there searching the best of luck. One word of advice...I've never been the best person with $$, but I started saving more recently & I'm glad I did. I didnt think this would happen to me, or that I'd be out of work for so long. I could have been farther along on my 'mod roadmap' if I didnt put so much away, but I dread to think where I'd be right now if I didnt. Keep that in mind if you ever see yourself going mod-crazy.
So now it's time for me to catch up on some bills, do some holiday shopping, and pick up where I left off- cause when you think about it, Spring & the '02 season are just around the corner. I've known for some time my next steps- now its time to execute
hehe
Thanks again everybody http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Congrats. I was in the same boat. Layed off in May from a software company killed by the economy. Worst part was it was only a month after I traded up to my WE from a 2.0L! I made it through and worked at Borders while looking for another full time IT position. I've had a new and secure (I now work for a college) IT poition since Sept and absolutely love it. Let the mods begin again!

It's funny that you say that, cause I almost took a job in Rochester. Actually I'll be moving from Long Island to Northern NJ- not right away, but probably in a few months to make things easier. Don't worry my local buddies- I'll be less than an hour away- you havn't seen the last of me....haha. I do have lots of friends and family upstate though & will get to visit more now- so I'm sure I'll see you guys

Thanks for all the congrats- I'm all smiles today

Congrats! I know the pressure and stress of looking for a job. I was laid off in July, and fortunately found a position mid September that is far more stable, albeit no chance of making massive amounts of money, but I'd rather have a stable job than no job.
