Good going! It looks like it took about 8 months from the first post, which from what I gather is about the average time for a new grad outside the "in demand industries". Now, with your foot in the door, it's probably just a question of time and building up your skills. Hope things work out for you.

How is the public transportation at the new company or will you be getting a driver's license and your own vehicle?

A license, and a vehicle.

TX sound great for you-you will get out of your county. Yippee.

You will be fine driving...don't stress too much over it. You can try to move close to work so you can afford a cab ride or maybe bicycle in the beginning if you can't afford a car right away.

Also you can rent a car for weeks or months, so you have something to drive before you buy a car.

I know, getting your license is the first step. You CAN do it.

If it's tough to find an apartment and pay for security deposit and everything...another option is to look in the classifieds and find a room to rent in someone's home. then you can use the kitchen and bathroom and you have your own bedroom. It's very cost effective.

Congrats.

If he is scared of driving in his own county, Houston and Dallas drivers won't make it much easier. ;-)
