The company I work for prides itself on being frugal, which translates into salaries on the real low side. It's been a good learning experience, and adds some more skills to my resume, but it's not a company with any growth potential. Which I knew, going into the job. It was always intended to just be a stepping stone.
And my youngest will be 18 next month, and that means no more CS. Budget-wise, things have already been a little tight with the CS. Without it, well, let's just say it's not going to be pretty.
Sigh, I had really hoped to be in a better position financially by this point. I thought I had an almost sure thing on a new job last month, but I guess my sister's old boss was talking out his ass. Which really sucks, because while I wasn't counting on the job, I did at least expect him to interview me, because he told my sister he'd call me. And if I got the job, it would have given me a skill set I could expand on, and have career growth.
Oh well, it is what it is. But what it is, is that now I really need to work on looking for a new job.
I'm mostly just whining here, btw. I'm hoping if I get the whining out of my system here first, I'll be more likely to start looking at the job search sites again.
