    ...since I graduate this semester. I need something to make enough money to start paying off my students loans. I took advantage of my EMT certification and applied to a local transport EMS company through one of the hospitals around here. There have been a lot of steps before being hired, but it looks like I applied at the right time because they are expanding and need the help.

    I had my interview and it went really well. The lady who interviewed me said she would push my application through for hire. I then had to send in reference forms for the background check and I was having a difficult time finding out if they had received them. Finally, this morning I got a call and they set up my bloodwork physical appointment and my orientation. I still won't be able to relax fully until I hear the words "You got the job and you start on this day", but it seems pretty promising right now! Jobs are so hard to come by and I will be soooo relieved if I get this one.

    Just wanted to do a little dance and share with my BYC friends! Graduating and not knowing if I'll have money to pay my loans is such a stressful thing!

    This ones by home, but still about an hour away. The way the hours and pay works out, an hour commute shouldn't be too bad at all though!
