Congrats on the ministry school, Ish!

I remember those good ol' days.  I did a 4 year program but did it in three.  I received my bachelor's degree in 1999.  What a great feeling!

Cool alldat. Mine is a study program that I can convert to a bachelor's or apply towards a master's since I already have a BS. It'll take 3 years, home study with one class a month. I'm excited!

So last week, I got an update that a connection of a connection viewed my profile on LinkedIn. I noticed she was in the same field as me only in the community (as opposed to a government facility where I work). I put in a request to connect and she accepted so I sent her a message and told her that if she had any openings that I seemed like a good fit for to let me know.

Yesterday, she messaged me and set up an interview for today for a position that is the same thing I do now! I had to fill out the application but it seems I have a pretty good shot at it.

Anyway, the interview is at 3, right after I get off work. I would appreciate your prayers for direction.

Just be and sell yourself. If it is meant to be then you'll get an offer.

So the interview Friday went well - so well I had a second interview yesterday. I should hear something by the end of the week.

Best part of the interview: when she asked me what I was thinking salary I gave her a number about 7% more than I make now. She countered and said "I was thinking more like" and then said a number that was about 11% more than I make!

I found out today that I got the job! More opportunity for growth, more use of my skills and I asked for a pay increase of 12% and she gave me 18%! God is good!

Thanks so so much for your prayers and support!

That's great. So it went from her initial 11% to 18%? She must really like you.

Actually, during the interview she asked what I was thinking salary and I said $xxxxx - that number was about 12% more than I currently make. She smiled and said "Actually, I was thinking more like $xxxxx." That number is almost 18% more. It's the most money I've ever made in my life.

Hey guys - I got cleared yesterday and officially put in notice to start my new job October 1!

However, I'd like to ask you to pray for my wife and I as we decide what to do about insurance. I carry the whole family and to utilize COBRA at my current job will be more than double what my pay raise at the new job will cover.... so... not good.

Thanks all.

You'll get thru. I had to carry my fam with Cobra for 4 months during the stupid Vons Union strike of '03. I left Vons during that stupid strike as the Walgreens pharmacy manager called me and asked whether I'd like to make 100 bucks a week standing in a picket line, or come work with her and make bank... the only catch was I'd lose insurance until WG kicked in for me. Set us back a bit, but just like you'll do, we stayed insured and caught up with the new big paychecks  Wink

Actually a coworker told me that UHC has temporary health plans for job changes and layoffs that are only about $100 a month depending on the need. I'm going to look into that.

So the insurance at your new job doesn't kick in for 3-6 months I take it?

60 days after hire. December 1, from what I understand.

That is standard for the insurance at our company as well (60 days).
