Called Back to Full-Time Employment

    Great News here...A Company I have done work for has called upon me to come back to them on a Full-Time basis in Electrical.  I accepted. (Of course) There is a job to be done locally and it is close to the house.

    I am a self-employed/contractor electrician, but with this really bad and slow economy work has been bad slow. I have got by, but this opportunity opened up and I have decided to take it...for now.  Once the economy picks back up I will restart my own business back up and try to keep both going.

    Of course it will cut into the time I have spent on HP, but I will still be here also. Just not as much.

    Just thought I would share some good news with everybody on Hubpages!!!

      I know how it goes man, I'm an electrical designer that creates the plans for electricians to work on. If your slow, I'm slow lol. I'm still hoping to get back into the field!

        I hear you!!! I do feel lucky since I get called back, but another company close by just laid off their entire crew. 
        I figure that new work we will see coming will be more from the Medical industry. The one I just started was an expansion for medical and will next start a job on a military area.

          I hope it does pick up, I've been hearing about more layoffs in the field during the past couple months from people I know. But only time will tell!

      I am sure it will. The economy didn't collapse as fast as other places...but it finally did last summer. There are small signs of a slow upturn.

    It will be good to know a steady income is coming in and not worrying about it...too much.

    Thanks Izzy and Wren.
    I read about the deaths also. They were east of Arkansas in Mississippi that I read about. Tornadoes are killers at times.
