:bananada: I *finally* got a job!:bananada:
I start tomorrow at a receptionist/admin assistant position! It must be meant to be b/c i was already turned down for the job (as their second choice) and the first person didn't work out!
Not only are all the people i've met nice, the office is beautiful and on a clear day has a beautiful view of seattle across the puget sound!
I'm so excited!
:cheer: yay yay yay! :cheer:

the first day went well, lots to observe and learn but nothing beyond my abilities! At the end of the day the sales guys wanted to know if they had scared me off yet *scoff* they WISH...
and how's this for irony... the employment agency i signed up with in late september called today with a job for me FOR THE FIRST TIME sheesh! it doesn't rain but it pours!
I'll send some positive energy/thoughts the way of those of you still hunting

By the way..
do i get any bonus points for getting through two days not laughing at my canadian co-workers' accents?!?!? i KNOW it isn't their fault but i never really believed that canadians talked liek that!!! (the company is canadian) and it keeps creeping up on me.. "talk about the process" had me biting the inside of my cheek!

No, darling, the Canadian accent is highly contagious. You will be infected within the next week, if all goes as I predict it will...
In college, I was engaged to a Canadian. The speech patterns, slang, etc. all work their way into your own speech QUICKLY (and often without your realization). The same can be said for colour, favour, schedule (I've heard Canadians say both sked-yoo-ul and shed-yoo-ul).
Soon, you'll be cracking open an Old Moldy (Molson), eh?!? :lol: :lol:

i'm doooomed doooomed doooomed!
i'm a total sponge for slang and accents... but i've always preferred the british/canadian spelling of words liek theatre and colour so i'm 1/2 damned already.. stupid standardized spelling!
tell me aboot it!

18 years ago I started my current job after their first pick only lasted 6 months. I hope you have a long and happy career with your new firm.

The view sounds beautiful...
