My new job!
I have a new job!!
I have accepted an offer from a small non-profit organization (about 115 employees) that provides credit counseling and debt management services for consumers. The job title is Data Analyst, which basically means they need someone with strong database and analytical skills, to help with analyzing and reporting on their data. It's a very close fit with my skills and experience.
This is a permanent, salaried position. The pay is exactly what I wanted, and the benefits are excellent, on a par with what I had at my last job, but much less expensive.
The location is good, about 15-20 minutes from my house. I'll have my own office, which seems like quite a luxury after almost a decade working in a cubicle. I've never worked for a smaller company before, having spent my whole career until now working for big corporations. I'm hoping it will be a less stressful environment than my last job, but we'll see how it goes.
Anyway, I am tremendously excited, as you can imagine! I keep having to pinch myself to see if this is really happening. But it is -- I have the offer letter in writing -- and I start first thing on Monday.
I'm delighted to have found a position that meets all the criteria I was looking for. Wish me luck as I start this new phase of my career!
I will probably be blogging and hanging out on Compuserve somewhat less in the coming weeks, as I get up to speed in the new position, but I promise to continue posting any OUTLANDER-related news here on my blog as soon as I hear about it.
