So the good news is that I have been jobbed! I accepted an offer yesterday for a great company (my first choice!) and I start next week. Back to Work! My official title is Business Development Manager for the US Market - ie person who will work her butt off at bizarre hours! I am really excited...and a week from Saturday I will be flying out to Dubai and Abu Dhabi for a week on my first recruitment trip. The team I am working with is impressive and international - 14 languages are spoken - thank goodness that they had room for a Yank!
