Good news! The thing I interviewed for yesterday worked out in my favor, so I'm starting (paid) training on Tuesday. Right now it's classified as a summer assignment that runs until sometime in August, but if they like me enough they might extend it to perm. I'm also glad that they're giving me 2-3 weeks training first since, as much as I liked my previous job, they essentially tossed me in feet first and told me to figure it out on my own.

Congratulations! These days no job is really permanent anyway.

I've actually been told that a lot of companies are switching to a temp-to-perm model after the recession, since it allows them to take someone for what's essentially a test drive and not have to deal with the HR stuff until they're sure someone's staying.

Hooray! Training is essential. I know that I can't handle just jumping into a new job, it's soo overwhelming. And yeah...the comment above does have a point. :p

Yeah, especially since the types of things I'll be doing involve taking messages about medical issues, so for the sake of the people on the other end of the line I wouldn't want to deal with me without training!
