Have a brew on me. No... Have two! I got a call back this week from an engineering contracting firm my friend gave a reference for me. They need someone in their controls department to work with data acquisition and automation. Given my experience with automation, drafting and programmable controllers, I fit the bill. I'm going up to their company for a face-to-face and a handshake. I'll have my official offer in paper when I drive back. I don't want to get into too many details about the salary but let's just say, I fit right where those BLS statistics say I should be. So I'm pretty happy! I'm still one class from finishing my degree but they're mostly concerned that I get my license first. The first thing I want to do? Do all the preventative maintenance on my car and clean up my debt and get my teeth taken care of. Dental insurance for students is atrocious and I have some decay in my teeth. The three things I need to be concerned with: My debt, my transportation and my health. After those are "up to par", I'll start thinking about how to enjoy my post-graduate career.
