The position is in Lacey, Washington, (right next to the capitol Olympia) which is about 40 minutes south-west of where we live. Even though we were initially disappointed to live so far away from Seattle (Seattle is about 40 minutes north of us); now we are happy to be in such a central location that allowed me to apply for this job. This process has taken a long time, but that's the government for you (one of those efficiency things that should be fixed by people who are management analysts). I actually applied for this position the end of August. I won't start until mid-December because I need to complete a background check and the state only starts new hires on the 1st and 16th. Even though I won't start for a few more weeks, it's a comfort to know that I'm finally going to be employed.

I GOT A JOB!
Truly I have something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. This afternoon I got the call that offered me a career. I will be a Management Analyst for the State of Washington. I don't want to divulge the division on this public forum due to privacy reasons, but for those of you who are friends/family I will be happy to let you know if you're interested. I am very excited to be offered this position. It's working for the state government in a position that improves government functions (efficiency, effectiveness, accountability, etc); truly my dream position. This is what I went to school for and of the several jobs I applied for (and interviewed for) this is one that I've been most excited about.
