In response to a dejected commenter last night, I’ve created a new category: happy endings. There are 20 or so posts in there with happy endings — stories that ended well, with jobs landed, jerks receiving their comeuppance, and much more.
Cheer yourself up by reading them!
Other fun categories to read include jerks and bad interviewer behavior, although those perhaps aren’t quite as cheery. You can find the full category list to the right (middle sidebar, under the post index).
