After receiving my W-2 for 2007, I realized that my income (box 1) has gone down for the 3rd year in a row. I haven't gotten a raise in about 4 years and I am quickly finding myself in the same position I was a few short years ago when I came to the conclusion of filing bankruptcy. All of my bills are getting paid, sorta, but there's no money left over for food and gas not to mention the extras! There will be no Jaeger watches to give on Valentine's Day from me! My mother's birthday is next week and I won't even be able to celebrate it with her. Enough is enough.
I took the suggestion of my dear darling cousin to put a resume on Monster.com just to see what's out there and if anyone seems interested. That was Sunday. On Wednesday I received 2 different calls from local agencies to inquire. The first one is an agency I am familiar with and is a commonly accepted company. The second one is an agency hired to find employees in the accounting and financial world only. I had a meeting with them today and they are waiting to hear from me but already have 2 positions I would basically qualify for...one of which doesn't sound too shabby, actually. So this is what I'm thinking on Thursday.
