Kind of exciting, job related

As I mentioned in my last post, my dh has been actively looking for jobs in Oklahoma. Most of his side of the family is there (grandparents, aunts, sister, etc) and his parents are about a day's drive from there (as opposed to the 4 to 5 days drive from here). Also, with the cost of living so high in CA, we feel a move to a "cheaper" area is in order.

Well, so far he's been doing phone interviews, and they have gone pretty well. Yesterday morning he had a phone interview with a larger corporation, and he pretty much nailed the interview, according to him. A few hours later, he got a call from the recruiter that the job came from saying that they would like to fly him out to for a face-to-face meeting! We are very excited, but know that just because he is being invited out for the meeting, doesn't guarantee that he will get the job.

What do you think? Does the fact that they are paying for a flight out and hotel room mean that he will probably get it?? We have never tried to get jobs from afar before, so we don't really know how the protocol goes for that. :)

I would say that he is definitely at top candidate! Maybe top or top 3?

Praying...

Well most companies, especially in "this economy" won't spend the money if they are not really really interested. Hope he gets it for your sake and your sons.

That sounds really promising! CA is outrageously expensive (we are in Sacramento).

It's actually probably a very good sign. When we interviewed for a group home in Virginia (we live in NE); they flew us (and our son) out there to visit and do an interview in person. They bought us supper, put us up in a nice hotel, paid for a rental car. It was awesome. And we got the job.

It does sound promising. We live in Oklahoma and this is where I grew up, although I had lived away for many years and just moved back about 5 years ago. The cost of living is definitely good, comparatively (to Houston, Dallas, Boston). If you end up moving here maybe we can meet.

Also, I have been lax in keeping up with blogs lately. I will be praying for you all, the job and Little Bean's diagnosis and how that is impacting you all. I know that can't be easy.
