Dare to hope

In an earlier LJ post I said I dared to feel the rekindling of hope that I would be employed again soon. I kept my language circumspect because I know that pride comes before the fall, but I feel I'm entitled now. He also said I was the top candidate for the position. *preens and puffs out furry chest in pride* It's only a casual IT support position, but I'm grateful to have something and getting a paw in the door is always a good start. Sorry for all the furry affectations in a work post; I am also on my way to RivFur so my head is in two places right now. He also said he will put my name down for a partner company so I could potentially share hours between them. Anyway, I am understandably very relieved to have a source of income again, and I don't start until Wednesday so I can go have fun at RivFur first.

Oh, finestkind! *hug* That's wonderful news! Any money's better than the dole (how does unemployment benefit work in Oz anyway? Is it similar to the UK, where it's a fortnightly pittance theoretically without time limit, or more like the US, where it's a fair percentage of last salary, but limited in duration, in a similar manner to unemployment insurance?), and just having that self-respect invested by someone agreeing that you are worthwhile is a tremendous boost.

Hopefully, just the start of better things ahead. ^_^

It follows the UK model, as we do in most things.

Getting one's paw or other appendage of choice in the door is always a good thing. I am very happy for you!

Off-topic: can you please tell Ristin I sent him a message on here? I'm not sure if he's seen it.

He advises that he hasn't seen it. He says he will try to check LJ now.

My heartfelt congratulations! Like so many folk, I've found myself 'between jobs' before and it ain't fun. Enjoy RivFur :o)
