Job hunt continues

For those of you who know that John has been pursuing a consulting specialist position with Gallup, I thought I would give you the update. John went out to Omaha, Nebraska on the 3rd and had a good round of interviews there and we were very hopeful for a positive outcome. In fact, they all but offered John the job, telling him who his supervisor would be and that they were looking forward to having him in the office. Then, on Tuesday, we received a call informing us that they had not selected John for the position. The news came as a surprise, but we are doing fine. In the beginning, John applied for a position as an associate analyst, and in the process of interviewing, Gallup requested him to apply for the consulting specialist position as well. John is still in the running for the position he orignally applied for. Unfortunately, they are not hiring for that job until May 2009, so there is a little more wait involved. Oh well, life goes on and we are moving forward. Instead of a setback, we are viewing our position as still being on track for what we originally anticipated.

Oh man, I'm so sorry. I was so excited for you. I guess that wasn't the right thing. I have to admit I am glad you aren't leaving so soon, but I really do want you to find something as soon as possible!

hey lady! I have been thinking about what i said the other night and I just feel awful! I didn't mean to make it seem like no big deal with my little "just not the right job" comment. Believe me we have been in your position and it's not that simple. I admire your positive outlook. And I know a bigger blessing is just waiting in the wings. Merry Christmas

You know you are in our prayers! Can't say I am sad to have you around for a little longer, (if not indifinitely), but believe me I am praying for good things to come to such great people!
