    Uses of "have got/have gotten".

    Hello!
    Here it is the following situation:
    It was difficult to find a job for me. I've been looking for it almost four months. In the end I was lucky and as the result I've got my job.
    Can I say ...as the result I've gotten my job?
    Do American/British people still use the form 'gotten' (Past Participle) or just 'got'?

    Thank you very much!

    British people do not use 'gotten'.
