After 3-1/2 Years of Unemployment, Husband Just Got Hired! Happy V-Day, Indeed!

Last edited Thu Feb 14, 2013, 03:08 PM - Edit history (4)

Oh. My. God. I'm in tears right now. One of the companies my husband has been doing occasional contracts for called him in to tell him they're hiring him as of March 1. I'm in shock and blissful disbelief! We've struggled for so long I can't remember how it feels to just be able to have a good night's sleep. Anyway, I just wanted to share our good news with DU. What a GREAT V-Day!

Update: And I've been given a whole mess of Valentines by several DUers??? I'm literally speechless and we all know what a rarity that is. LOL! OMG. Thank you!

1. Very Happy for you and your husband!



I get good news like this from my client some times. They will call and say they no longer require assistance because they found gainful employment and I am happy to close their cases out.

8. We're in Central California

and the recession hit this area HARD. Our Unemployment was at 21% at one point. Plus, my husband's over 50. I can't say our economy is booming up here but I'm no longer watching dozens of places of business close, literally, every day. I'm just so very happy right now!

63. Hooray!

Even short term unemployment isn't the least bit fun, and after this length of time it must have felt almost hopeless.

My older son, with a degree in CAD (Computer Aided Drawing) three years ago, had trouble finding work in his field. It took a year, then he got a contract job. The engineering firm REALLY liked him. Should I add that he has Asperger's, which makes job hunting and interviewing a real challenge, but it also means that you just give him the work, give him the space needed, and he'll just work until it's done. Anyway, they kept on extending his contract but eventually had to let him go because they ran out of work for him. Six months later, after he'd returned to college to work on a physics degree, they called him up because they had another project for him. Which he did over the winter break from school.

So sometimes there are good employment stories, and I'm so glad you shared yours.

83. I can just feel the weight that has been...

...lifted from your shoulders. Did he just call you with this news? Have you seen him yet? I can imagine what kind of bear hug you guys are going to be locked in
when you see the whites of each others eyes. Happy Valentines Day to you both!

95. He waited until he got home before he told me.

He had an appointment with them and thought he was just going to be given another contract (it's been one project at a time). He came home with a stunned look on his face and said, "You're not going to believe this, but they just hired me!" He was as stunned as I was. He had to tell me the salary/benefits information twice because I didn't hear him the first time. It's not as much as what he was making before he was laid off (company closed down) but I don't care! I've forgotten what it's like to have a regular paycheck. To be able to go out to dinner every once in awhile. To not get panicky when I realize I've gone over my $200.00 a month at the grocery budget. To have heat in the house (our central heat/air went out two years ago and we've been using space heaters and wall unit air conditioning).

I posted to DU and read the responses for awhile, laid down to take a nap (no sleep last night, LOL!), got up to find this still on the first page and SO MANY responses, recs and Hearts!! This is a day I'll remember for the rest of my life.

99. Truth be known....

.... we needed to hear from you as much as you wanted to share your good news with us. We have been hard at it discussing some pretty hefty issues, as all DUers are wont to do. I think we needed to take a break from it all, then Viola'! There you was! So glad things have turned around for you two.. And hope that folks all over the country are finding life sustaining jobs.

I know exactly how you feel and how wonderful he must feel. Going through something like that shows true love.

Many blessings to your family always

So thrilled for you both! Change we can believe in! Party time!



(And me, too: After more than 3 1/2 years of unemployment/temping/freelancing/part-time gigging, I just got a full-time job. It's a contract job for now, but I am very happy to have landed in something full time with decent pay.)

126. Congratulations

I wish you and your husband all the best.

I got hired last September after being unemployed or underemployed for the past four years. I understand the tears of relief, the tears of gratitude.

I hope you don't mind my asking but have your values changed as a result of the long dry spell? My values and priorities have changed. I no longer put as much value on "stuff" as I used to. I also feel more comfortable with change and the concept that there is no certainty in this life.

Kansas City, please eat at Santoro's Pizza, it's near down town, where all of the business and convention facilities are.

Congratulations to you and your husband, Le Taz Hot!
