New Chapter

I received and accepted a job offer today.  Woo Hoo!  They want me to start on 1/18/2016.  When I was parked in my Mother's driveway over Christmas, one of her neighbors placed a bag of orange on my driver side mirror.  I called my Mother to let her know about the job offer, and she said the oranges were good luck.  I guess she was right.  Happy New Year to everyone!

No, I am not talking about being turned down for a date.  I am talking about being rejected for a job.  If you apply for a job these days, they will only contact you if they want to interview you or offer a job.  If they have no interest in you, or you were rejected, it is easier for the prospective employer not to contact you at all.  It makes sense, why waste time and money contacting job applicants who have been rejected.  It is cold, and impersonal, but that is how it works now.
