Economy Struggles, Broke Grad Gets Hired

by Broke Grad on November 4, 2008

In the midst of the struggling economy, I actually have some good news to report on the job front. I recently received an offer for a full time position at my company. For newer readers, I started working for the company earlier this year on a one year contract. With the contract ending in a couple of months, they interviewed me for a full time position, and I got it!

I really do consider myself lucky for working at a company that happens to be hiring right now, especially with the current state of the economy. It’s not something I could have planned out. It really feels like a lot of luck and timing. Sure, there was probably some skill involved in landing the job in the first place, but it still amazes me at how much luck and timing come into play in the end.

As an added bonus, I’ll be getting a nice raise when I start full time next year, because I have a master’s degree now. That means I’ll have to work on setting some new financial goals as the end of the year approaches.
