0 to employed in 6 hours.

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted here.  I tend to post more often to Twitter because it's so much easier and faster.  And Skyrim had consumed a huge portion of my life for the last month and a half.  Damn you, Bethesda!  Although I haven't posted anything, I do read everyone else's posts regularly.



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.
