I have to say what helped me most in getting hired was the support and encouragement that I got at spark people! You rock!

I was on time for my job even getting there early most of the time. My boss was great with all women in the office and we were a small group. I am the CSR and on the phone most of the time getting client schedule for their medical exam for ins co. Great to have a job in this tough area that people are looking for work.

Bigtime CONGRATS!

Your perseverence has paid off!

If you have any other thoughts about what you did that you feel made the difference for you I hope you'll c'mon back and share them for the benefit of others!

Onward and UPWARD with your career!

DOWNward with the scale...lol!

Traveling: I always take LOTS of water and fresh veggies along.

Best wishes to your reborn career!

Don

ps...wish you had a SparkPage...this deserves a MAJOR SparkGoodie! :-)

Wahoo! I am so happy for you! Since you know you're going to be traveling you can plan ahead for food. I have seen Spark articles about on-the-road fitness, so desite the changing schedule I think you could do really well for yourself!

I know that most of the unemployed do not give up their search and are victims of this tough economy. Keep trying is all that I can offer. (And my letters to Congress to extend the benefits.)

On Monday, July 12th I begin my new job. I was unemployed for 7 months so I was on extended benefits for a few weeks. Thank goodness. I want to thank all this board for the discussions.

My new challenges will be that my job requires travel. Maintaining a schedule is difficult with time zone differences.
