Quest

I have a job!

I accepted a 6-month contact position with Quest Diagnostics in West Norriton (in Audubon, near the intersection of Egypt and Trooper Rds).  I'm not sure what the chance of that going permanent is, but I think I'll enjoy the experience either way.

I will be helping them to configure hardware, do Linux installs, and basically other odds and ends tasks that their lone Linux admin doesn't have the time to do right now.  I think that even if this doesn't go past 6 months, I will learn a lot in that time.

I start a week from Monday...  January 28th!

Thanks to you all for your prayers, well wishes, etc!

WHOO HOOO!!!!!

Congratulations! I'm sure once they see how awesome you are, you'll have a permanent position in no time!

It requires me A) being awesome (which I think is quite likely), but also B) the manager having an open req...

That's great! That didn't take long at all. :) I hope it turns into something permanent for you.

Congratulations Dan. I'm confident they'll find you irreplaceable long before the original 6 months are up, not just due to your mad Linux skillz (and people skillz), but due to the fact that they only have one permanent Linux admin.

Hey, while you're there, you could secretly work to get that admin promoted out of his/her position. :)
