I signed the paperwork this morning and I start me new job on Monday. I am enjoying my time off but after reviewing the job description again this morning I am excited to get to work. I spoke a bit more with my boss today as well (I can actually call her that now! :)) and she said that she got GREAT references on me. I didn't doubt it but it was nice to hear. It's given her some peace of mind about hiring me for the position as well.
I also alerted the placement agencies that I am taken. The one that arranged that original interview said they were still working with the hiring manager to figure out a position. Glad I'm not waiting for that!!!
Over all, I couldn't have asked for better timing had I planned it myself. This is perfect!!!
