Got woken up by a phone call at around 9:30 a.m. on Friday. It was a recruiter wondering if I was interested in a Network Server Admin job in Lincoln. The client was in a big hurry, and I got an interview that same day at 1:00 p.m. The interview lasted a whole hour, one of the longest I think I've ever had. Shortly after I got home at around 3:30, I got a call that I was hired. They e-mailed me a bunch of paperwork in PDFs, and I digitally signed them and sent them back by 5:30. 6 hours from initial phone call to being hired, that's gotta be some kind of record.
I start work Monday. I'm replacing a guy who is retiring on Friday, so I get a whole week of training before be thrown into the job. There's only one other IT person there, a temp who's only been there for a few weeks. This is gonna be fun! At least the pay will be good. It's temp-to-hire, which means in 6 months I'll hopefully be permanently employed.
