Great news! My wife has accepted the job offer that she was considering. We are very blessed in that she was offered the job within 2 days of being laid off from her last company. After meeting with them again this morning to learn more about the company and the job, she decided it was a good fit. She starts with them on Tuesday of next week.
Her first 2 months with the company are training, but there may still be an opportunity for her to earn some commission during this time because she inherits all existing accounts in her protected territory. Any accounts that are due to renew service, she receives a commission for.
I am very proud of her. You hear horror stories of people being out of work for months on end. Within a week, she interviewed with numerous companies and received quite a few call backs for second interviews.
Since she received a new job so quick, and her old company agreed to pay her until 9/5, we will not experience any paycheck lapse. Therefore, our emergency fund will remain untouched and we're moving forward. I've got to say, it's good to know we were prepared for the worst in case things worked out differently.
This concludes this test of the Emergency Broadcast System.
