I start my new job today. I've been out of work for 1 month. I guess in this economy, things could have been a lot worse. I'm hoping that this new job will be a good fit for me, and I for it. In the year that I spent contracting with this same company, I found it to be a wonderful place to work. Who knows, maybe this job can be the one from which I retire. Wish me luck, BITOGers!
