Finally Got the Call

It seems so surreal. Yesterday I got the official word that I have been hired. 

I can’t believe that I have my dream job and I don’t have to move across the province or the country like other guys do.  I will be able to stay in my house and continue to serve the volunteer department I am on.

The last 7 weeks has been absolute hell on me and my family.  This was truly the most stressful time of my life.  I don’t think it would have been as bad if they had given me a realistic time frame during my interview.  2 weeks is what they said and 7 weeks was how long it took.   I actually started the process way back in January when I did the physical, then the aptitude exam in February, the interview in March the DISC profiling and reference checks in April.  I received a conditional offer of employment on Friday April 15.  That is conditional upon a medical exam which I did yesterday. 

I am so happy, but like I said it seems like it is not real.  Now I have 2 weeks left of my current job.  Tonight I will appear before council to let them know.  I have told my parents and that went a lot better than expected.
