So I got a phone call ...
 
... and was offered a job - Senior Counsel for Litigation. Still in the same office but different division and different client. Not much of a pay bump but doing stuff I love (litigation - a big variety from real estate, commercial, civil rights, torts, etc.). 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.

Nice! Just got a new job myself. It does blow being the new guy but that wears off in time.

Congrats guys. I'm hoping to be in the same boat soon enough.

Thanks all.

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

That might be the best job benefit I've ever seen...free college for the kids.

Big congrats!

That's great to hear. Your hard work and patience has paid off. Is this the same promotion you were thinking passed you by?

Congrats to you Joe! I know you'll do well sir! And congrats to you mredskins for your new job too! And hope you'll be there soon too Matty!

I've been looking for a new job for almost a year now with not a great deal of luck. So, I'm still driving an hour to work everyday - getting tired of the commute! Starting to wonder if I.T. is something I should stay in or not.

Congrats! Tuition benefits are awesome.

Congrats Joe, I know you've been pushing for something new for awhile. Man I need some movement in my job, but fighting to keep my head above water through layoffs of the last several years has been work in itself.

Congrats Joe! It's about time you got something you deserved. I'm looking forward to the big coke-and-sex party, let me know when it goes down.
