No. Different one from earlier in the Summer. They told me in July that it had been given to someone else. The person who took it, however, had applied for other jobs as well and one of them came through. The issue now is whether they have to readvertise or if they can just name me based on the last round of applications.

You need to treat yourself to a steak dinner and few cold drinks!!!!!!!!!!
Actually you probably need to treat your wife to nice dinner and a few glasses of wine because we know she is the one who keeps you straight.

I am to be lead chair on all the big stuff, and help advise and mentor the line attorneys.

Big huge perk - Free college tuition for the kids if they go to a school in the UM system.

It was a bit out of the blue b/c I had applied for it some time ago and was told I had not gotten the job. Still some hoops to jump through so can't tell my supervisors just yet. My new boss's attitude was "We would like you here yesterday" but it's still the govt. so gotta make sure all the bureaucratic BS is done.

Pretty f'ing psyched.
Congrats Joe!
No wonder you're so pissed about that shutdown thing......
Maybe now I can get some traction at the annual WP shareholders meeting for that WP logo YF-22 to replace Redskin one.

Re: So I got a phone call ...

Congratulations!

This is a tremendous opportunity but I must say the first impression I got from you was a middle school science teacher not a bad ass litigation attorney. You are very down to earth and a good guy. Glad to see a good guy win one!

@ FRPLG - You show up in Baltimore, I'll buy a round or two. I think, however, we should probably forgo the cocaine and strippers.

So you don't want to be a politician ?(lol) Congratulations ,the UM stuff is fantastic!!!

Re: So I got a phone call ...

Awesome last day. Clients stopping by to wish me luck, tell me how much they will miss me and "I hope they know how lucky they are to get you". Boss took me to lunch and asked if there was anything he could do to get me to stay.

On top of that, and completely out of the blue, was able to settle a million dollar plus case that was heading to a couple of years of potentially embarrassing litigation for my client at a number they absolutely loved and were convinced they couldn't get.

Walking out like a boss. F*** Yeah!

Not to rain on the parade but starting a new job sucks. I hate being the new guy vs the go to guy.All in good time I suppose.

Re: So I got a phone call ...

Well, it's been two weeks now and I am happy to report being the new guy does not always suck. The folks here have shown more appreciation for me in two weeks than my old job did the entire first year. Apparently, in a meeting with the the No. 3 guy in the organization, my new bosses "were overflowing with praise on my start." I have been given several excellent litigation matters and am already very clearly the go to guy. It's clear to me that this job has the potential to be the best one I have ever had.

On top of all that, was able to cash out a bunch of leave I was never go to use but was going to lose on the transfer. It worked out to a little over a month's pay - damn nice Christmas bonus.

Life is good right now. I know it will change and work is called work for a reason, but, damn, it is nice to feel like you came out on top for a bit.

Thanks for all the well wishes guys. I truly wish the best for each and every one of you.
