CLOUD 9

This has been a crazy emotional day. :) Thank you, everyone, for your good wishes and crossed fingers and held thumbs and words of encouragement over the past 4 weeks.

I got the offer from Company A when I got home, and it is lower than I expected, but I have the weekend to think about it and how I want to approach the salary negotiation. I hope I can get them to nudge it up a bit.

This afternoon I called and left messages again for the people at Company T who hadn't called me as promised on Monday and didn't return my messages from Tuesday, telling them that I needed to know the status as I had another job offer. 30 minutes later she had called me back in total consternation, and very upset that she hadn't called earlier in the week. She said that if I had my own company she would offer me the job on the spot as a consultant, but that doesn't work since I don't. The problem is that they were forced by HR regulations to post the job internally and they have 1 internal candidate, so now she wants to set up some sort of test to figure out if I am better qualified than this internal person. I told her that I can't expect Company A to wait much more than the middle/end of next week, so she promised to get back to me as fast as possible. We'll see what happens.

I am sitting here very quietly freaking out over the whole thing. :) In a good way.
