The Job Search

Aahhh yes, the job search. Not much has happened to us (the kids and I) lately so I thought I would update everyone on one of our most frequently asked questions. How is the job search going, when will you be moving, and where? Those are all very good questions...and the hardest part is that I don't have exact answers. In Dustin's field that he is going into (Higher Education Administration) the job market didn't open up until just about 2 weeks ago (when the end of the semester is).

That being said my husband has done an amazing job finding REALLY good jobs that would both fit him perfectly and that I would be excited to move to. Thus far he has had first time interviews (phone interviews) with schools in Las Vegas, Arizona, and Indiana (yes we do love it here). Next week he will be meeting face to face with a school here, flying out to Las Vegas for another interview and this is only the beginning!!

We "aim" to start our new job around July 1st (and yes I said we because this is a group effort here). We are going on holiday with my parents in June and hope to start shortly thereafter. More than likely getting an apartment so that we can get to know the area first, then buy a home after finding what suits us best.

This is a very exciting time for us and we will keep everyone posted when we "secure" a job. As I keep reminding myself-in the market that we are in finding a job is like getting married. When Dustin flies out to meet his future employers he has to be happy working for these people, in their environment...because I mean come on, you don't marry someone with the thoughts that you will get them to change. You love them for the way they are. I am proud of Dustin for working so hard throughout his Masters degree so that he can have the "pick of the litter" when the job searching time came around. There are so many other things that I want to say, but lets just suffice it all by saying that I love my man.
