After nearly 9 months of being mostly out of work, I am currently waiting for the written job offer to arrive at any time. This position is in my field with a pay raise and a fantastic bonus potential. I am extremely excited to get started. I am hopeful that I can get back to making great progress on my debt in the very near future. I am also told that the sky is the limit at this compny as far as earning potential. Thanks for being supportive. I am always reading but dont post often.

Congratulations!  That's a long time to be unemployed but unfortunately is not unusual in this job market.  What a huge relief!

Thanks everyone! It was definitely a relief! My offer came in, and I will start tomorrow morning! (Monday). This is a very high pressure job, and I am hopeful that my hubby can rally and handle things at home without me, as I will very possibly be working long hours some days. I look forward to the challenge. I am actually hearing that in the current economy, nine months is about average for a job search. I was continually looking and applying, and had six interviews, and a couple positions that went past the initial application process in that nine months. I am very pleased to have found what I expect to be my work home for quite some time.
