I am going to get a job offer today. Not sure of the specifics but I know that the salary will be in a good range. I really liked the people I interviewed with. I took this interview out of desperation initially but after meeting the people I really want it.

I got fired from my last job for making a serious mistake. They had no choice really. It was totally my fault. It could affect a background check.

If I can't get past this background check, it tells me that I'm essentially done in my industry and I'm going to be in dire straits job wise.

Please, if you've got any, I could use some job/background check mojo.

I really need this since my former employer is being difficult about my final pay

Well so far things look good. They scheduled my orientation and IT contacted me about where to ship my computer. I can only surmise if there was a problem with my background check they wouldn't have done these things.

I work remotely so getting the computer shipped is a big deal.

The company performing the background check still has it showing on their web portal as 'in progress' which has me a bit nervous. But it does look like that always awesome SI MOJO is working!

This is all very good b/c the company that fired me is jerking me around about my final expenses which total up to about month's worth of my household bills. That has definitely added to my tension level!

tushnurse...I love my job and working remotely but it also require a LOT of travel. Good/Bad. Slowly working myself towards an experience level when I can get the next step up in my field so there won't be as much travel and still working from home.

Thanks so much everyone! It is such a relief.

This may be one of the blessings in disguise moments. I really liked the people I interviewed with a lot. There will be opportunities for me to move into a less travel intensive position and still work from home in 1- 2 years.

The job loss also provoked me to start exploring some other career and educational options that I will continue to pursue now that I've got the momentum going. I've meant to do them for a while but I've been busy and preoccupied.

This is also huge because the old job is really making my life difficult. They are holding my last expense report payments because they are 'auditing' them. This totals about 2 -3 months worth of my living expenses. I've already paid off half of my credit bill also so really the total unavailable is closer to 4 months. This was really going to start to be a problem if I didn't get employed soon.
