Thanks to all of you who helped out in IMHO with questions for the interviewers. Whatever happened, I got the call about 3:00 today that I have the offer. I (having been out of work for 7 months and eaten through all our savings) didn’t even negotiate.
Tears literally came to my eyes as I got the offer, because it means no more scrimping for my family, no more taking the cheap way, and really as the number one reason, someone finally took me seriously.
Aww, hell. Who’s your daddy? I’m gonna get a laptop, a company car, and a corporate card.
