I’ve never before truly considered the almost unbearable beauty of the sentence: “Human Resources will be in touch with an offer ASAP.” Whoah! Read it again - isn’t it just exquisite ? That’s what my new boss just told me on the phone.
After applying for a hundredandsome jobs since August, I finally got approved as NOC Analyst (NOC: Network Operating Centre) for a major media concern. Fortune 100 company, no less.
I did OK on the first phone interview, I kicked ass during the technical in-person interview and I just finished a third approval interview on the phone (speaking a most beautiful High German) with the poor guy in Hannover that I’ll be working with. And now I got the call from the NOC Manager. I! GOT! THE! JOB!
OK, so I’ll start doing the night shift and I could’ve lived without that, but in this economy, jobs, no matter when in the day, are hot commodities. And I’ll be working on a beaut of an 800+ router worldwide Cisco network with all sorts of interesting technology, from the good old iron-age DECNet to MPLS. Woohoo!
Time to do the wounded stork dance around the room some more.
