I was given a verbal offer on Friday and on Tuesday (1/28/20), I was sent the official offer letter. Pending drug test and background check (which won’t be a problem) I will be the new Contact Center Director for Coach-Net starting on February 10th. This is a great company with an outstanding team. There are so many wonderful things about the role and I’m excited about the new challenge. One of the nicest things about the new gig, it’s less than 3 miles from my house! Everyone, please know that I appreciate your kind words, good thoughts, and encouragement. The new year may have started off rocky but it is quickly shaping up to be a great one. Now we just need to hear about a new album and tour dates! #jobsearch2020
Thank you to everyone for your kind words and encouragement. You made this latest bump in the road much easier because of your love and support. https://setlustingbruce.libsyn.com/job-search-2020-update

I finished my 2nd full week of my unplanned sabbatical. It was a pretty good week. I had two phone interviews. One of them lead to the next step which was pre-employment testing. The other lead to an in person interview on Friday.
I think I did OK on the test (the toughest part was the math, with me trying to remember how to do long division). I’ll know the results next week. If I pass the test, they will schedule an inperson interview.
The interview on Friday went well. I have a 2nd interview with the company, this time with the hiring manager coming up this week.
The only other irons I have in the fire (as they say) is a company requesting a phone interview. I’ve applied for another company and one of my contacts (thank you Bruce) knows the CTO and they are reaching out to them to have them review my resume.
It was a good week. Thanks to everyone for the good thoughts and kind words. No Retreat, No Surrender, Better Days are ahead.
