Cougars on the rampage

I am pleased to report that you are now reading the journal of the newest employee at the University of St. Francis library!  Woo-hoo!  Norma called this morning and said the offer was still on the table, though they couldn't meet my salary expectations.  After thinking about it over the weekend and getting advice from various individuals, I decided it was still a good deal and accepted!  This means full-time employment with vacation and benefits, starting ASAP.  I believe my title will be known as "Librarian Assistant" -- it's not an MLS position, but it's a good transition from Parkview to a degreed position down the road.  This allows me to work full-time and accrue supervisory experience in an academic library, so those will definitely be good things.  This also allows me to remain near my folks and not have to stress about moving.  So, I definitely feel good about it.  I just turned in my two weeks notice to Parkview this afternoon, so the ball has started rolling there as well.  As much as I love Julie and have enjoyed my employment at Parkview, it's time to move on to new challenges and a bigger opportunity.  Go, USF Cougars! *thumbs up*

Good for you. Benefits are really important, and having PTO or vacation time awesome too.

Indeed. It's taking longer than I would like, but things are slowly coming together. Hope you're doing OK, too!

Congrats! I'm so excited for you!!! Now that you've gotten good news on the job front maybe you can send some of it east to NJ.

Job mojo

Ha! Yeah, no doubt. I took a quick peek at your journal and see there's some hope, I pray that "light" will indeed turn out to be a way out of the tunnel! Thanks for your prayers and support. *hugs*

Hey, congratulations! I knew that you would find a better job soon, and it sounds like you've made a really good decision for yourself.

I hope you love your new job as much as I love mine! (and that you're a hundred times safer, lol!)

hugs,

amy

Thanks! Yeah, it seems like we're both moving on to new and exciting challenges (albeit yours takes much more courage)! I'm glad you are enjoying your job so much, I am looking forward to getting started at USF next week. By the way, I love the blue doo! *LOL*
