Triumph!

28 November 2012

I’ll write much more tomorrow. But all the interviews went really well. The final bigwig, who’d watched my talk, spent about 15 of the 30 minutes scheduled for our interview telling me how awesome I am and what a great talk I gave before asking me a single question.

I was told it’ll be about 2-3 weeks before they make a formal decision. But more than one person asked when I could start (mid to late February, I told them.), and the final wrap up interview included a discussion of money which would represent a substantial raise. Though all of that, I’m sure, would be eaten up in higher living costs.

All in all, I feel like everything went absurdly well, and I will be both surprised and disappointed if I don’t get an offer. PECMC is beyond gorgeous. The people were bright and engaged. They care about what I do and have a backlog of work that I could begin on immediately.

I want this really badly. And I think, hope, I’m going to get it.

    I’m super happy this is working out for you 24h. Don’t let them schmooze you into something less than full negotiations. Talk to EVERYONE. Know what you need to get the job done and over-ask ‘for the success of the project’. And include travel, computers, office upgrades, ask about university based loans for houses ….. inviting speakers. The whole fucking thing. Draw the motherfucker out. No hasty decisions. Many visits. you’re worth it.

      Thanks for the advice, but I already told them that I’m available. All those perks? Remember, this is a hospital operations job. Not a professorship.

      They explained to me that they are offering a lot of cash.
