So after 3 months of holding my breath, I can finally breathe a sigh of Relief / Victory. I applied for a position within my company, that was posted on the intranet job board back in June...after 2 interviews & weeks and weeks of waiting, I was finally offered the position, yesterday afternoon.
I had given up hope when I found out that they had interviewed someone from Florida...they actually flew him out on a Friday, put him up in a hotel, gave him a rental car for the weekend, and then interviewed him on the following Monday...I did some snooping (he's got a very distinctive name) and found his profile on LinkedIn...I was blown away by what I read under his profile..he seemed like a perfect fit for the position...maybe even a little OVERqualified. I thought that the job was his for sure.
But it wasn't....who knows, maybe he just looks good on paper and really blew it during the interview.
Anyhoo, I start the new job on the 22nd and just can't wait until I get to say "Adios Suckers" to my current coworkers.
Time to pop some bottles!
