Finally got the perfect job!

PKponder TX Z7B

After a year of unemployment/underemployment I've accepted a position in the IT Department of the local MHMR organization starting next week. I had so much fun during the interview and really look forward to getting started. It's a small IT department, I'll be the 5th analyst.

Thank you all for the good wishes!


Raven, I've been very discouraged and sad. I'm not sure why suddenly I began getting offers after a long wait with nothing closer than a 50 mile commute each way, but I was finally able to choose the one that I wanted and only a half hour away. I love the work that this non-profit organization does and look forward to supporting the employees.


I think I may still drive Uber on the weekends, it's a fun job too but not suitable as an only job. We shall see how I feel after working all week.

Congratulations, PK! Forgive me if I’m being dense, but what does MHMR stand for?

Hi Sammy, I am just realizing that MHMR (Mental Health Mental Retardation) must be a Texas specific organization.

This specific org is a local government that isn't associated with Federal, State, County or City government. We provide treatment for early childhood and adult intervention for developmental delays and disabilities, mental health crisis services, drug and alcohol addiction and support for Veterans and the homeless.


Of course, I'll just be offering IT support for the fine people who actually provide these services.

I have to correct an earlier statement. MHMR is an acronym for My Health, My Resources.


Three weeks in and I love the job!
