I’ve been waiting for over 3 weeks to hear back from IBM. I eventually heard from them, when they apologized for taking so long. All this is understandable as they interviewed a TON of people. The good news is that they want to offer me a job! They bad news, is that they can’t give me my offer yet because of corporate red-tape. It has to finalized, stamped, copied in triplicate, etc, etc. Either way, I’m very excited to see what they have to offer.
I also got an interesting call today from MSU. I applied for a position as a web developer there almost a month ago, and got a call to interview today. I was caught off guard, so I hope I didn’t sound not-interested. I have an interview with them on 12/15. I look forward to hearing about the position, hopefully answering some interesting questions, and seeing what they have to offer. While I doubt they can match IBM’s pay scale, they have other incentives like tuition reimbursement and then like, which make a job there very enticing.
Also, along a different line, I created a URL shortener the other day. It’s called fwds.me. It works like any other URL shortener, except faster :)*
That’s all I have for now. I’ll leave an update when I’ve made some job decisions.
*It’s probably not faster, but it’s at least as fast as most other shorteners. I use Apache mod_rewrite to handle the url, and then a quick sql query to find out the original URL.
