I hope it's not bad luck...

...to tell the world I now have a job, when I don't get to see the contract until Friday.

Verbally, I've been made an offer - I know what my hourly rate will be, how many hours per week I'll be expected to work, and my start date. Verbally, I've expressed joy that I only have to work 25 hours per week, spread out over 4 days. I've also accepted their offer.

But what a bummer it would be if something happened between now and Friday morning, to make a lie of this blog post...

hope its not bad luck to say "CONGRATULATIONS, VIOLET!!" :)

Daddy L said...

Congratulations. If they pull the offer at this late stage, that would be grounds to be seriously pissed. Sounds like you have it in the bag.

I'm pretty sure I've got it "in the bag", as daddy l says - but all the same, I won't be shopping for my office coffee mug until it's all there in writing.

No worries - you can always "borrow" one off me! Congrats on getting the job - more coffee catch-ups, yay!

Angela said...

That is awsome.
I know it does make a difference to have the paper in your hand.

Violet said...

desiree: yeah, it'd be nice to have coffee with grown-ups!

angela: thanks. I was gonna take the contract home tomorrow, and look at it over the weekend before signing it - but I'm very tempted to sign it there and then, just to get it all out the way.
