Yep...unfortunatley 'it' is not me getting my internet connection back...but 'it' is something just as good.

After 5 and a half months of unemployment I finally have a job again!

Yes...I now work for a temp agency...one of my first assignments is to do data-entry for a local printing company, sounds fun, and it pays $22.50 an hour

All right! It´s a start, who know where you´ll end up. And within weeks, you'll want all those days off again.

Well done Skaarjj, does this mean you will now get your connection back soon?

The poster has demanded we remove all his contributions, less he takes legal action.
We have done so.
Now Tyberius Prime expects him to start complaining that we removed his 'free speech' since this message will replace all of his posts, past and future.
Don't follow his example - seek real life help first.

Well done.

I've been on the ass end of the employment cycle too many times in my short years since leaving highschool... I know how sucky that is.

Hang on, $22.50 an hour for data entry! Shit me, the most you'd liekly get for that in Brisbane is $16 an hour, and even that's stretching the limit. Now I remember why I hate this City. =)

that $22.50 is for typesetting/data-entry...and it's night work...that's why it's a higher rate.

If you want to do data entry work at good rates though Drac go look up the brisbane office of a company called Drake international...sign up with them, they're a temp-agency, and they are very, very good.

^^Yep - me too... "It finally happened" left the question: What, you lost your virginity? floating around in my head...

Congratulations! What a relief to finally be working after so long. My husband is still unemployed after 6 months, and my sister just found a full time job after 3 months. You have my complete sympathy for that.

And $22.50! What a salary! I'd probably give my right arm for that amount of money per hour (I'm left handed...). We consider ourselves lucky in NC these days to make about $10-12 for just about any job... I'd be rich on $22.50/hour...

Know what you mean. After the last company that I worked for downsized I took a job making about $20K less a year.
Being in sales sucks!

Ouch C:\! The economy here sucks pretty hard right now... Be glad you're not in construction. My husband is a carpenter, and we found out recently that 2300 construction/carpentry jobs have been cut in this area in the last 6 months. That's 2300 other people looking for work in the same trade. Needless to say - he's going back to school in the Fall to study HVAC... Higher paying field, and hopefully, more work available....

Congrats Skaarjj .. I know what it's like to be looking. 4 months work in 18 months is depressing, but now I'm back in a proper job too, so I know just how happy you must be ...

Good on you Skaarjj. I'll pass on the good news to those interested .

$22.50/hour. You lucky bastard. I do data entry sometimes for my parents, and they don't pay me half as good. Hell, I earn less than an hour of your wages in a week. What company is it?
