Whoa!

I am continuing to get calls about jobs. I am quite astonished, as putting my resume up on Dice during my previous round really did not have that effect at all and it was, I think, a better market. I learned a couple of Cool New Things at the last gig but not that much, I think. It was mostly doin' the voodoo that I do, although at the higher end of my skillset and getting a bit more credit for knowing stuff/cleanup. Am I just packaging myself a bit better on paper? Anyway, *BOGGLE*. Dude, wtf? I feel more confident about my skills (having gotten Praise instead of Smackdown during their exercise) but confidence does not equate to Phones Ringing Like Crazy, Man.

I did have a couple of repeats - yesterday I got a call about the job I decided not to pursue in SF, and today I got a call from someone about an employer I know to require an MCSE instead of "equivalent experience" (which may be why they are STILL LOOKING - I got pinged about them when I started this round of the process).

I had to change my phone ringer because the "classic telephone noise" was giving me a headache because it was going on so much.

I also just got a call from my regular agency about a job out in Concord.

And email from an Ex-Cohort via LinkedIn.

I also managed to survive a phone interview and be invited in for the next round.

Miss Mags, I am trying to preserve Lunch Hour tomorrow but it may be touch and go. Will let you know.

At the rate the phone is ringing I might have trouble slipping into the shower before my trip to SF. (I have 3 hours to shower, dress, call back the ex-cohort, eat lunch, and try to take care of some other business, some of which may need to wait till tomorrow morning.)

And I won't have trouble filling out the EDD form (yes, I have to go in again next week, didn't I just do this, WTF?)

hmmm ... might try a shower run ... phone hasn't rung in 15 minutes ... ;)

This is awesome news.
If you can't make tomorrow, don't fret too much-- if you GET a job they won't start you immediately, we can lunch early next week.
Or would you like to brunch with me and bearsir on Friday morning, 'cause I'm pretty sure that would be hilarious.

Maaaybe it would ;)

But I have an 11 am in San Francisco on Friday, so won't be able to make that. Could give you a call when I roll back into town.

Am thinking of being part of the Community at Community Night tonight to clear the tech cobwebs from my brain and hear noises that aren't the ringing phone so will give you a call when I roll back in from San Ramon.
