Not just a temp job, anymore. They’re hiring me! Effective next Monday. I will get a $3/hr raise and benefits will start in November. It’s still a survival job, but it’s a good survival job. I like the people here and I’m making more than I would with my skill set at other places.

Hopefully, this will be a sufficient placeholder to get me through until I can get my career back on track again.

(If you haven’t followed my career saga that started over a year ago, this is a big step in my rebuilding after some crushing defeats.)
