More Breaking News - 11/29/17 07:00 AM

Like Shannie Mae, my long period of unemployment is coming to an end.

I received an offer letter today for the best possible opportunity and from a company I'm very excited to join. As the offer process isn't complete I won't go into the details yet.

Suffice it to say that I am one extremely happy and tremendously relieved camper after a 17-month search for that right-for-me opportunity.

Thanks all for the well wishes and congratulations.

Offer letter signed, and the preliminaries (physical, drug screening, background investigation, etc.)are in work. No worries from my end, of course. When those preliminaries are out of the way, I can then discuss timing with my Director. At that point the whole (sponsored) relocation process goes into effect.

I will not be posting anything about this on FB until Terri has the right opportunity to announce this to her folks.

It was indeed a long period of searching and interviewing as I was trying to move away from Government Contracted Engineering Services. Looking back I know I blew the first couple interviews I had, but since then it's been all about trying to find that right combination of opportunity/experience & management style/chemistry.

This will be my first opportunity to manage outside of government contracting since leaving active duty in 1997. I'm soooooo looking forward to this new challenge. clap I'm so grateful that this opportunity proves to me that getting my Masters wasn't a waste! dance

We're both very excited about moving to Atlanta. We'll miss my daughter and some friends here in VA Beach, but we might now get to see one friend Chris (lawnchairboy) more often (because we only get to see him when down riding in the mountains). What's REALLY great is to move to a place where you already have friends!

And of course, we're very excited that instead of living 5-6 hours from decent twisties, we might only have an hour ride to good roads and two hours to some of the best. revit

Congrats. It is good to know the interview you went on while at FART worked out. No wonder you went so fast after lunch!

Yeah, that was it! We wanted to get back! tongue

Actually, there's some truth in that. thumbsup I was itchin' to get back and head down to Atlanta, to get the interview behind me. Little did I know the day before how well the interview would go. I really liked the 3 Directors who interviewed me ... and apparently the feelings were mutual.

+1 👍
I am so very happy for both of you! Your employers have both gained tremendous assets to their teams! Your energies, positive attitudes, passions for doing the right thing and going above and beyond on projects you undertake are obvious to all you come in contact with! I am so very happy I have been able to spend time and share our passion for motorcycles with both of you!

This, of course, was the single most important factor in the job search!
