Well, that's done...

Those of you whom are on my friends list may remember a post I made back in Semptember about applying for a lead position in my group. At the time, this was a net-new position, meaning that there would be a new body coming into the group, or a new body to fill behind anyone who got a promotion. I haven't talked much (okay, at all) about this here, because there were other considerations that needed to be made.

Well, this week I'm in San Diego for a training class, and staying at the lovely hotel. BORING. Anyway, the boss wanted to meet with me for dinner yesterday, and I figured it was related to this job opening. Mind you, since the interview time, there was a hiring freeze put into place. Well, the meeting was making sure I was still interested, given that some factors have changed. The big factor is, frankly, that the hiring freeze changed this from a net-new position to a promotion only if I were to get the job. No new body, which we really need. Well, since she was paying for dinner and all, I thought it'd only be right to say I was still interested.

Tonight she called to formally offer me the position.

So now I'm the Desktop Engineering Lead, effective December 2. Yeah, I aparently got the job before it was offered to me, but that also means one additional pay period with the new salary, so I can handle that.

Wish me luck. I'm gonna need it.

No, but it does mean I'll probably get a new cell phone CrackBerry.

Yay for promotions and I hope this doesn't mean you end up doing more of the less-fun stuff and less of the more-fun stuff.

Incidentally, two days ago, Meg and I watched all those fresh faces from GSC 5 appear on GSN. Was it really ten years ago...?

Promotions are nice, but inevitably you'll have those little moments when you wonder why on earth you did it. My little moments are getting fewer and fewer (kind of like nicotine cravings but not like them at all).

Good job though!

P.S. Did you want to know the name of my spawn now or when we know whether it's a boy or girl?
