I got a JOB!!!

So while I was in NY I had to log in to submit my unemployment claim so as not to miss my payday. I decided to quickly check my email and there was an inquiry from a company named Oberon about a Configuration Management position at Hanscom AFB, MA. I emailed them and told them I would be out of town but would call them on Wednesday when I got back.

Monday morning the boys were very cranky and overtired and I was coming down with a cold and I decided it was time to head out a day early. I was upset that my visit with Cindy was going to be cut short but I didn't want her and her family to have to deal with my cranky kids.

Tuesday am I emailed the Oberon contact and told them I was home a day early and available to talk to them. They called me and said it was a good thing I got home early as they were about to make someone an offer, asked me if I could come in the next day. Wednesday morning I showed up at 10am to talk to them and by 11:30 I had an offer. It was contingent on me getting a security clearance so they posted my start date for August 11th. Well when the security people ran my social my old clearance from 2005 was still active so they didn't have to do all the background investigations and just picked up that clearance and called me back and said I could start Monday!

What a whirlwind! I can't wait to get back to work!
