i did it...

the 4 weeks of my co-op have come to an end with today being my last day. all week i've been waiting with bated breath to see if i would be hired on. earlier in the week, i went to hr to bring my evaluation forms and she told me they "had a plan for me", but that she couldn't say more at the time. finally, yesterday at 4pm, i received a call to head down to her office. i crossed my fingers and made my way down. she presented me an offer for a 4 month contract, which is how they start everyone out, which will likely turn to permanent afterwards. i took it back upstairs to read over before i signed it, though i really didn't even have to think about it, i knew i would accept it! i'm absolutely thrilled that i finally have a career job, and it certainly doesn't hurt that the amount they offered me is a good chunk more than i was expecting!

currently, i'm not working for any particular lawyer and haven't been for my whole co-op. i'm going to stay put for now as 'overflow' in corporate law, but i'll likely be moved in the next few weeks. the options are either working for a new associate, or a really busy partner, but the choice isn't mine so i'll just have to wait and see.

i'm just thrilled that school has finally paid off and i was lucky enough that i was placed at a fantastic firm that was able to keep me on.


here's to being a working woman and bringing in an income! our life is about to get even better, and my life is becoming more like suits ;)
