After a year of searching and 8 months of concentrated searching I found out I finally have a job.
I am officially part of huge multinational stable bank where Chris works.
Technically I was offered the job on Monday "contingent on completion of background check and fingerprinting". Filled out the paperwork for the background check online Monday, and it's already back.
Today I received the call that I was hired, and to report on Monday for paperwork and Tuesday for training.
It's only part time right now, but with huge possibilities for becoming full time in the near future.
Yay gainful employment!
