    New Job - Start Monday

    For two years I have been trying to get hired by a particular shop here in the STL area. I've had a few interviews with them that seemingly got me no where and others that got me offers, but we couldn't quite get on the page. Wednesday I received a call from them requesting I come in Thursday for an interview. After my interview they made an offer. I accepted and start Monday.

    I couldn't be more excited for the opportunity. Here's to my new career. And a new guitar to celebrate...or two?!

    Cheers Jesse.
    For what it's worth, the last time I accepted a job with a new company I got a guitar as a signing bonus.

    It was/is a pretty nice guitar. Special circumstances made the negotiations pretty easy.

    Congrats, Jesse!
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Congrats Jesse! I totally know the feeling, after wanting a job with a certain organization for 4 years it finally happened earlier this year for me. I've spent the last 6 months training and I'm finally about to start the real job in a couple of weeks time.

    It really is my dream job, nope scratch that, vocation, and I'm going to be "semi-retired" in a years time as I'll be 4 weeks on, 4 weeks off. Let's hope one of those 4 weeks off falls on a XPRS and I get to join in on all the fun and meet all you dudes

    Thanks Moss. I think we both needed a bit of a restart. Here's to it!
