I haven't posted in a while, just been busy with life and doing fine. I moved to So Cal in late 2016 breathing off the fumes of my persistence to succeed in the LA area where my home state of Michigan let me down. After two horrible jobs back to back from my first week here until Dec 2017, I landed a contract assignment at a large health care organization. I knew that if I be patient and proved myself a great worker, I would eventually be hired. As luck would have it, someone got a job in another department and their position opened up. I worked along with this person for a year, so it was fate that I would replace her. I had to go through the interview process, and two weeks after the interview, I was offered the job yesterday.

The pay rate and the benefits alone are miraculous and will improve the quality of my life exponentially. I am truly lucky and blessed, but I worked very hard to get myself in this position to be hired.

So if you're on a long term contract position, or still looking for that perfect job, just keep at it, you will find the right job for you and all your hard work will pay off, just like it did for me.

Congratulations! So glad that all your hard work was recognized.

It's nice to hear a success story in this forum. It's often doom and gloom here.

Health care is one of the industries they always tout as being good to get into.

Thanks for all the well wishes!

When the benefits package was revealed to me, I gasped at the significant discount. As a contractor, single/no kids, I pay over $400/mth, pre-tax. With my new job, I'll pay $98/mth, pre-tax for their Top Tier level health plan.
