That's *employed* LVT, to you.

Called back WC and spoke with the tech.  He offered once more, and I accepted!  Since the other tech (who I believe is actually my classmate) is starting on the 24th, he wanted to stagger our starting dates.  I offered the 17th (next Monday), but he wanted me to start sooner.  Like, tomorrow or Friday.  I took Friday.

There's a four month probation period, but if I can get through that without killing anything/making people pissed as hell, there's a possible pay increase plus a bunch of benefits (medical, dental, metrocard, share of profits, etc).  So not too shabby.

I'm really happy, and kind of frightened.  I still feel like such a dum dum, and I hope they don't regret their decision to take me on (considering they posted on Craigslist, I'm sure they had a slew of applicants).  My friend told me they were only taking one tech, but then after our classmate got hired, she heard (from said classmate, I guess?) that they were considering hiring a second tech.  I'm that tech.

Basically, this dog looks how I feel:



  1. Whee!! Congratulations -- you deserve this break after all your hard work and when you start, you will realize that you have all the smarts needed. Enjoy tomorrow -- hope you'll get some crocheting done! xo

  2. Thank you so much! I've been sneaking it in here and there, haha!

  3. You're going to be great! It's always scary in the beginning and before you know's all old hat! All that hard work and studying will pay off! Go...girl!
