Look Kids! Big Ben. Parliament.

Even as I have started school my job hunt continued.  I got contacted several weeks ago by a head hunter with an interesting opportunity.  I gave him my information and he checked a my references.  Last week he called me and said that his client wanted to talk to me.  The company was based in the UK and they were going to have a person in my area this week.  


I talked to him this Tuesday.


Yesterday, I talked to the VP of North American Operations who is based in California.


This morning I talked to their Director of Customer Service who is in London.


This afternoon the head hunter called me back to let me know they wanted to offer me a job.   That was fast!!


It's a good job, with a good salary in a field that sounds very interesting.  I accepted the offer and they are already asking how soon I can come to the UK for 2 weeks to get up to speed on their operations.  Holy CRAP that's fast.


After being out of work for 4 1/2 months, I don't think it has sunk in yet that I have to start getting up for work soon.  I am very excited.  Thrilled.


So what about school?  I think I will have to drop my classes for this semester.  I think I can still do it and get a "W" for the class rather then an "F".  Then starting this summer, I will start again, probably with one class.  Then another.  This will be slower, but I think it's a good idea.

Ahh - my question is the same at MiddleMan :) I let my T go away to medical school and I've been horribly lonely in January

Thanks for the well wishes guys. I'm very excited. One thing though: The company is based in London and I will be going there for some training, but I will be based here. I'm not moving.

That said, I would LOVE IT if T and I could go away on a grand adventure like that.
