New Job & Yacht Rock in the Jukebox

Well, after applying to a position over @ ITS and getting an interview, I was offered the Software Systems Engineer Sr. position this past week. I’ve accepted the offer and will be starting there as of July! 😀 I must say that I was pretty intimidated by the Sr. level but really look forward to advancing my technical skillset quickly in this position. The team handles NAU’s implementations of CAS, DNS, and LDAP among other things. I’ll be able to finally stretch my legs in a number of areas I haven’t been able to in previous positions. I’ll miss working for DL, but it’s time to get on with it!

Also, I finally got Ricky Bill the 3 Yacht Rock compilation CD’s I was telling him I’d do for the MonteV jukebox. They not only have some of the smoothest songs out there, but they also include soundbites from the “Yacht Rock” series. Without further adieu, here’s the tracklist for your smooth drinking (Mimosas, of course) soundtrack:

    Congrats dude. You’ve been through three jobs in the same space of time that I’ve been on one!

    True, that’s the only bad thing about getting the job. Before that I was @ ITS as a student worker for 5 years and before that @ Sonic for 3 years. I don’t like “job-hopping” as some refer to it.
