Yeah- HERE IT IS- The GOOD NEWS

I am now( soon as the back ground check is done-- the 9th of July I hope) an Employee of the State of Colorado Employed by the Personnel and Benefits office!!! @ the University of Colorado- Boulder.

that said you can look up the office here at PBS or you can start on the home pages here at CU **

This is what has been in the works for a while. I have been patiently waiting for this job, I took the exam for " general professional I" back in February and had a 1st interview at the beginning of March. Then was turned down on the initial go round of available jobs because I know French (and do not have a fluent Spanish speaking capabilities) :) . But the Manager in Charge was wonderful and wanted me to know how good I was and how they wanted me!!! so she asked if there were another position, or they could somehow get me on temp to hire would I consider those?? yes yes I said with enthusiasm. So fast forward to the beginning of May- I got a call from the Manager, wanting to know if I was still interested and available?? Yes Yes I said I am!! Well to make an even longer story of it.... they had two people retiring and then an open season and the end to their fiscal year.... well I had another interview this time with the director and another manager ( team Lead) , they called me that day for my Professional references and By Friday I had the Job offer by phone!!!!! So this morning I went in and made the offer official and signed and completed lots of paperwork , I am only a background check away from starting this JOB!!! so there you have it. Thanks for sticking with me this far.
