I got the job at Canada Life!!!! After 3 weeks I finally was called by Alisa from HR to offer me the job. Yay!! I’ll be starting next week (Tuesday) and I’m very excited! Here’s the description from the ad:


Job Type: Casual
Location: Regina, SK, CANADA;
Job Category: Insurance
Industry: Insurance-Life
Date Posted: Feb 15, 2008

FASCORE CASH ACCOUNTS ADMINISTRATOR – This position is responsible for all record keeping services for U.S. wealth accumulation products such as 401K (Registered Retirement Savings Plan) and 403B (Registered Pension Plan). There are multiple casual positions working 20 hours per week. Flexible hours between 8 am and 8 pm Monday through Friday. Work can also be done on Saturdays. Responsibilities: Updating systems records with address changes, name changes and beneficiary information. (…)

A week and a half ago, we went “up north” to the Greenwater Lake Provincial Park for 4 days. It was awesome to see some more real winter, much snow and feel some real cold, before coming back to an already melting Regina. The only bad thing was that I got pretty sick from a bad cold and/or flu and I needed part of last week to recover. But I’m now working on the update for those days, it will be online this week, don’t miss it!

Today is St. Patrick’s Day, an Irish holiday where people like to dress up in green and drink green beer 🙂 We went to a sportsbar with Cortney and Geneva for some wings and green beers (well, no beer for G of course 😉 ) You can view some pics here:

  1. hoi Marlies,

    proficiat met je nieuwe job. Veel plezier en succes. Na al je ervaring bij de gemeente zou dit toch een peuleschil moeten zijn.

    Heel veel groetjes uit Heerlen.

  3. Hoi hoi,

    Ook langs deze weg welkom in Canada en in Saskatchewan naturally! Goed om te zien dat jullie je weten te vermaken. Gefeliciteerd met de nieuwe baan en de voiture. Wellicht wordt het toch tijd om eens met z’n allen aan een Saskatchewan CBB dag te gaan denken. Jullie in Regina, wij met Toos en Fred en Jacqueline in Gravelbourg, Henk en Marga in Balgonie, en nog meer van die hapsnurkers in de provincie. Tot ziens/horens 🙂


  4. Good for you !

    Good luck with the new job, and the Taurus as well !

    All the best, and Happy Easter !
