    Thanks you guys!!!!! . I don't have a WA license yet but I have applied for it.
    I hadn't even applied for my WA license when I was offered a position.
    Luckily, WA gets a temp license out PDQ. And it lasts a good while. The reg license takes a while. And it's somewhat of a pain for out of state applicants as far as fingerprinting is concerned. All in all, it will take a good 6-8 weeks IIRC.

    But, like I said, the temp license happens quickly. So you don't have to have everything in order immediately. Just pay the fees here and there to get it going...

    Thanks CCL! I have applied and sent everything off but I haven't heard anything yet. It's been only about 2 weeks though so hope that I hear something soon. Hoping once I can update with some type of local licensing info maybe I won't get the instant rejection. !
