Yay! Sweet plumtreeblossom has a job! And it’s a nifty one.

She (along with a sizable fraction of her co-workers) got laid off from her job at a local publishing company about three weeks ago. She got six weeks’ severance pay and the services of a placement-consulting firm as part of the layoff.

On Monday, she starts work at Zipcar. (If you don’t know what they do, check the link — they’re nifty.) She’s very excited and so am I.

And she’s had lots of interest since she posted her résumé, which is certainly gratifying. Yay! And it sounds like Zipcar is a really good fit, both in terms of skills and interests and in terms of the work environment.

By the way, my subject line refers to this userpic of hers:

Thats a way cool place to work, by the looks of it. They even have cars in Toronto, which is also cool.

Yay for plumtreeblossom! More money AND a better place to work -- sounds like a major win!

Oh cool. I hadn't heard about the layoff; I'm glad she found something new that quickly.

My alma mater started a Zipcar program on campus last year, they have no room to build new parking lots, so instead they're encouraging students to use Zipcars instead of bringing a car to campus. They're also paying $200 to each employee that carpools/bikes/walks/etc. So far it's working really well:)

Cool! Where was that? That’s the sort of thing we (i.e., Western civilization¹) really should be doing.
¹ which, as Gandhi said, would be a very good idea.

I didn't even know this post was here. Thank you for all your wonderful moral support, sweetie. *kiss*
