Well I got laid off in March from my pharmacy job which I went to junior college for because of budget cuts. A total of 7 people were cut including two highly experience RN's. I kind of went into "oh crap what do I do now" mode and have been stressing since that day until yesterday when I got hired for a company called Utility Pole Technologies. They travel up and down California and are contracted by PG&E to inspect and run tests on utility poles. Granted it's not what I went to school for I gladly took the the opportunity and the blessing. I am excited to start since I have always been into the blue collar type of work over the white collar, nothing like hard work!
Anyways, the pay is good, weekly bonuses, and travel with lodging paid for throughout California. Most of all I get to be OUTSIDE. It may sound crazy to some but I hated being stuck in a lab with no windows for 6hrs at a time.
I know I wasn't out of a job for long but damn it felt like forever.
