    PLEASE let the phone call husband got this morning be the first step towards the exact job he's been hoping for!!!

    He got a call from a headhunter in NY who got his name off the internet and who had also heard about him from another former associate. He says there's a very strong job prospect for husband at a competitor of his former employer!!! So it's the SAME industry (yay). And he said husband's former salary/compensation package is very competitive with what this company is offering for the position (double yay). AND... AND... the company is CLOSE TO HOME (Yipeeeee).

    husband has ALL the job skills and experience needed for this position. This would be the absolute PERFECT arrangement for him and our family.

    I am so nervous I am shaking. And he hasn't even got the interview yet, but the headhunter said he's hoping to have something lined up for him within the next week.

    Please send some good juju, rattle beads, cross fingers, nekkid chicken liver dance that this works out!!!!

    Thank you so much, all of you! It's so hard not to count chickens... but we are very excited about this prospect. It truly would be the perfect job for husband and this company was high on his list of places to target. Ironic that it may be falling into his lap...

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    No, no news yet. We're hoping to get a call back for an interview some time in the next week. I will definitely post an update when we learn more.

    D&C, maybe you could go over to one of those casinos near you and borrow some luck from them for us! ;)

    Keeping fingers crossed for you!! It sounds like a great opportunity and hope it works out. My experience with headhunters is that some will promise the moon to get some people in front of the employer for an interview so the headhunter looks good to the employer that hired him/her, and others are really honest about who they think is a great fit and won't waste anyone's time if they don't think the job is right for them. It sounds like this job would be very compatible with what your husband had been doing, so that's a good sign!!
