first impressions - you need to check grammar and spelling. I know people don't think that posting online is "real" but you're dealing with folks that have been hiring managers or have been; and it makes you look bad.

The response above is good but of course there are no guarantees. I would personally hesitate working for a company that would take so long to fill a position for many reasons..

Thank you for the well wishes! Yes, it was the toughest 18 months of my life, both financially and emotionally!! Many interviews, many rejections - but I did learn a lot about myself and as hard as it was at times - I never gave up!!! I would get down a few days and lick my wounds and then pulled myself up by my bootstraps and started over again. I have tenacity and it has finally paid off. I didn't even have to get botox which was my next step
Have a very Happy Thanksgiving justhoping, Having faith in GA, nostoneunturned! If I can do it, you can too!
