Job offer out of nowhere

June 20th, 2008 at 06:08 pm

Yesterday was a very long day. I worked from 8:30am to 8pm, then I had a meeting to attend. I was at the meeting until about 9:15pm and proceeded home to finally eat a late dinner. Boy, was I hungry! Wink

On my way home my cell phone rings and it is my husband telling me that a dentist I interviewed with over 6 months ago called at 9pm and will be calling me back at 9:30pm. He really wants to talk to me.

I walk in the door and about 10 minutes later the phone rings. This DDS wants me to work for him one day each week from now on and will pay me $2/hr more than I am making at my full-time office. WooHoo! Smile

I obviously took him up on the offer, but I do have some mixed emotions about it. I am thrilled that I will have more money to put toward debt repayment on a regular basis, but I am also sad because it is summer and my daughter is out of school, and now I will be working even more hours. She and my husband have been having all this fun without me...as I toil away, working my poor fingers to the bone. *sigh*

Okay, yes, I am totally being melodramatic, and the money will definitely come in handy! So overall a great outcome.

    Congrats! Just keep in mind that all your hard work will pay off later, when you have less debt and can take off work to enjoy time with your family! Smile

    Does that mean you will be working 6 days a week? If so, ouch! But, congrats, maybe it will turn into a fulltime job that pays more.

    congrats! i understand the pain but this will open up new avenues for you to get more hours when you need it, maybe work for the dentist full time if you get sick of your other job, work for the dentist several days while your on vacation from the other job, ect. It sounds like a great offer.

    klbb90,
    No, This will make 4 days a week, but total about 36 hours.

    gamecock43,
    Yes, I agree about this maybe opening up other opportunities. It is always good to keep my options open, especially in this economy.
