Sitting in limbo.
So it's been two weeks and I'm still just sitting in limbo with no word on my medical board status. I know it takes a while I'm just sick of hearing the same non answer over and over. What's worst is that I have a job interview for a job I actually want and if I get it I might have to turn it down. I'm hoping the military sees the logic in keeping me around doing bitch work until I get out is a waste of my time and lets me work on my next career. I doubt they will though. They're very good at not giving a fuck. My fault though should've not signed up I guess.

Well, yeah. Why fight for Big Oil and a few select Patrician families anyway????

At least Caesar gave away farmland.

Yeah I mean it got me out of my small Mississippi town which help lead me to becoming an atheist. Plus I wouldn't have met my wife(not sure if that is a plus Big Grin) But it has become so much more of a burden and has cost me my sanity and empathy in ways. Not go mention my PTSD.

I'm not sure what the well done is for exactly.

RE: Sitting in limbo.
Why turn down the offer for the job you actually want? Is it because you have to complete your service? I'm not clear on your circumstances.

If that's the case, advise the prospective company of your timeline and they might be willing to work with it. They could decide you are worth waiting for.

Your position might present some incentives they hadn't previously considered ... like using your absent period to screen temp workers ... or even better - to utilize internship programs. Maybe you can suggest such incentives for an inconvenient start date, during your interview. Shy

Getting out of Mississippi. Or am I wrong about that? Blink

This!!!!

If a company really wants you to work for them they will typically bend over backwards to accommodate your military separation. Most companies know it can be a bit messy and time consuming.

No you're absolutely right. I HATED it. Mainly because it was so hard to find people to talk to that understood me. Especially being young in a remote city with limited shitty Internet. I felt so cut off.

Yes I'm hoping the new job will do that but currently I'm being medically separated which can be as quick as a week or dragged out for months sometimes years. So I'm more leaning towards taking it and just dealing with it. Maybe work nights or what have you.
