I want to thank everyone that keeps this site going, current & full of invaluable information. Thank you from the deepest part of my being ! . . thank-you-2.gif

So I got up this morning & was tired of waiting for my career coach to contact me after jumping thru every hoop she put in front of me. I understand its a long process when you get assistance from the workforce program, but Ive been thru everything they asked of me since september, & the last classes I finished 3 weeks ago & havent heard squat. So I made it a point to go up there to the office, politely put my point across & sit until I received an answer one way or the other. After shuffling me around for almost 3 hrs the director of the facility came out & spoke with me. We sat down, I explained what was going on & he told me wait right here. Came back after about 20 mins handed me a paper with my start date & apologized for the lack of communication & waiting to hear from his staff. When I got out in the parking lot, I sat down in my car & cried . . Happy tears . . I thought "he!! yeah, I made it to school"

Just thought I would share . . . smile.gif

Congrats. So when do you start? How is the process of narrowing down future companies going?

Good luck in school.

Thank you for the well wishes & congrats from everyone . .

Rainy D- Thanks for the supportive words.

Patrick- My start date is the 21st of Jan, but the narrowing down of companies just keeps getting bigger . . lol. I'm still leaning heavily toward Werner, but walking into the school & actually sitting down with them & talking about different companies, its like Ive started my list all over again.
