Just letting everybody know that after almost 10 months of unemployment, I’ve been offered a job with a mid-sized architecture firm in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. I’ll be doing mostly construction administration work for now, working at the Manhattan office two days a week and out on a job site in downtown Brooklyn three days a week.
This comes not a moment too soon, as my last unemployment check just arrived in yesterday’s mail.
Thanks to all who have offered their prayers and support during my “time in the desert”, and wish me luck on the new job!
Also, keep in your prayers those who remain unemployed and especially those who have exhausted their benefits. It’s a scary position to be in. Contrary to the noises being made by the White House these days, the national economy remains in the toilet and there are still lots of people who are looking for work.
