    Good news: I'm hired. I know some of you have seen my "End of an Era" and "Steel Mill Portraits" series celebrating the place and people where I used to work. My job ended because they closed the mill on November 8th and I was processed out on November 11th.

    This was the best job interview I've ever had and more like colleagues chatting for an hour and a half about engineering than some kind of "interrogation". I'll be making a little more than I was at my old job and with much better benefits. Thank you, Jesus!

    They came after me which was very nice. I got a call from their HR department requesting my resume. Final icing on the cake is they called with an offer just 3 hours after I left the interview. I'm very grateful.

    I start December 9th.

    Looks like a 23mm 1.4 and XE-2 could be in your future, after all! Congrats

    Is it a bad sign that I was thinking the exact same thing? LOL :rofl:

    Congrats John - like I said in your earlier thread, there's always room for talented, hard workers! Knew something would turn up for you!

    That is really, really, really great news, John!! Congratulations! It sounds like a perfect match. I hope you have a wonderful time there.
    It must be a tremendous relief. I am very happy for you.
    I am sure professional photographers in your region will be relieved too. Now you have less time for photography. ;-)
