Pillow!!!



Yes, that's a new pillow. :)

It's official. Over the past day, I was told that they reviewed over 100 candidates. About 15 made it to interviews at the corporate offices. Half a dozen were interviewed by the Senior VP. You're reading the blog of the last man standing. As much as I wanted this to happen, I can hardly believe it's true.

Today, they made it official, giving me an offer letter which I immediately accepted, signing it and leaving a copy with them.

I start two weeks from Monday. I'll be back in to meet one other senior person on Monday, and I may go back in at some other points over the next two weeks, but June 6th is officially D-day, in the historic sense and for my new job.

It'll have its challenges, of course, but I'm very excited. Wish me luck!
