Not handling the ups and downs of our situation very well ...

July 31st, 2014 at 02:02 pm

DH had the strong possibility of a position with a company one suburb north of us. The dept. manager liked what she saw on his resume and responded within five minutes of seeing it that she was interested in him (particularly his experience on some software or whatever). That opportunity went back and forth for six weeks. The hiccup was that the agency that gave the company my husband's resume was temp to permanent. DH was going in as a permanent and there were issues negotiating a placement fee. At that point, my husband was told by the agency to contact the Dept. Manager directly. He did and received a "the position is filled" rejection email.

OK, fine, it would have been far too easy way to navigate his employment situation.

Well, low and behold the job opportunity has been resurrected. And it is a management position. And it pays quite well with a 10% bonus. And they want him for an on-cite interview as soon as possible. And a copy of his resume to begin his candidacy.

Not sure how I feel about this. Hopeful? Excited? It is difficult to remain neutral. It would be so ideal if he could get this job. Our situation would really be stable and solid.

Just thought I'd vent and write this out.

    I can see where it is hard to be hopeful with the dealings prior. I would trust that if it is meant to be, it will keep moving forward. Smile

    *fingers crossed*

    Breathe. Let go and trust.

    Offering best wishes going forward. It's safe to vent here and any of us who have been in a similar spot fully understand the emotional rollercoaster. Meanwhile I find doing physical work, digging in the garden, washing floors the old fashioned way, completing three pending tasks helps keep me grounded and my mind on the here and now.

    Hoping and praying that this will work out if it is meant to be.

    I would classify it as being cautiously optimistic. Good luck to your DH! I hope this works out!

    Wonderful that there is still an opportunity! We don't have much control over things like this; all we can do is hold on tight and try to enjoy the ride. I do think, however, given the enthusiasm from the department manager, that something good will develop -- if not here, then somewhere else, but he's clearly an employment-worthy individual!
