Hurray for me!! New job offer 26% pay raise

Ive had some family medical bills to take care of and ran up some unwanted debt.  Well, I was also searching for a new job and today I finally got the official offer.  The new position is in house counsel for a Fortune 100 company and my base salary will get at 26% pay raise (other bonuses and the like on top of that!).  HURRAY FOR ME.  The next couple of months I'll use the new salary to get my UTIL back in check and will be good to go for my app spree in January!



Starting Score: EQ 551 TU 548 CK 607on 6/8/12, EX 542(AMEX pull 3/4/12)
Current Score: EQ 710 TU 727 EX 704 CK 719(FAKO-EX 697, EQ 697, TU 697)
Goal Score: 750

Congrats on the new job

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Re: RE

Formally accepted position. Start next week. It will be good to put my last job behind me. (A poor manager in any job is a killer)
