I got a call today from one of my interviewers saying that they submitted my name to HR as the candidate. I hope that my lack of 2-week notices in the past doesn't hinder the process. Crossing my fingers. A little nervous about the tradeoff between stress and monetary compensation.
At the very least, I will be able to possibly get help through school. I hope that they allow me to work at the same time as going to classes. I am allowed two free classes a semester. Fortunately, there are retirement benefits and some group insurance possibilities. Number one is to get constant experience for one to two years, yet two years is the goal. My professors have said your first job you should hold for a bit longer to show you have the determination and allegiance necessary to be a good employee.
I'll be interacting with a whole lot of new people and situations. Those can often be very rough at the beginning for me. I just need to make sure I have a good mentor (which I have feared I will be without) and practice my social skills I have developed. I'd like to be done with this town in 5 years, no matter what. At that point, I should be on my way with a high-salary job of at least 60k. Then, I'll go wherever I want to be.
The MSA stuff still scares me a little bit. It is supposed to be very challenging at my school. I can work with the GPA requirements here better than other places though. So, we will see what happens.
