Well, after about 15 years of Fair/OK jobs, and the last 6 months unemployed....

I finally landed that Dream Job or dare I say "Career".
Thank you Monster.

I am now an IT Systems Consultant with a major Natural Gas Company.
Good pay, Great benefits and "Perks" including a company car.


To say the least, the last 6 months of unemployment have been very stressfull. Sorry for my sparse appearances here on the forums.
But I am back.


Anyway, I'll have a little bit of free time to spend "researching" at MrExcel.Com.

Wish me luck.

Very best of luck, jonmo, and congratulations on the new job.

I have neighbors that have been out of work for over a year. It is still a very tough job market.

Congrats and good luck with the new job. 6 months defintiely seems like a long time, but unfortunately in these times it may not be all that long of time compared to others.

Good to hear!

I hope it continues to be the dream job. Being out of work is a tough gig.

Congratulations, jonmo.

Likely a good industry to be in for the long term. Resources companies seem to have more money to 'throw around'. :)

Great news Jon!

You're blessed. My old boss, who was used to clearing 6 figures for much of his career, is now working in a health club for minimum wage (but he gets to work out for free...)

Good new Jon! I remember a while back where I had an uemployed stint of just under a year - 3 months in to it and I seriously thought I was never going to get another job :( All in the past now thank God!

Good luck with the new role!!! Naturally, research on MrExcel should be a prerequisite for any IT role ;)
