JEFFREY GETS A NEW JOB!
(Post from Jeff)
I have officially received an offer from EDS, a contracting company who does GIS work for the CDC, to join their team! I have accepted and will begin work on October 1st.

The process has been a very quick one. (May I just say that I LOVE the private sector?) I received notification 2 Fridays ago that EDS wanted me for a phone interview on Monday. Monday’s interview lasted an hour. An hour later they called back asking me to come meet them face to face on Tuesday and bring some maps I had created. That interview went very well too and ended with them asking salary questions and when i could start. Wednesday AM they called and made me a verbal offer. Thursday I went and filled out some paperwork with them and sign a written offer. Friday I went to have a drug test where they cut a chunk of my hair out. Last Monday they called to check up and Wednesday this week I got a phone call saying that I passed all my tests and was slated to start on October 1st!

I handed in my two week notice Thursday and it was hard! Leaving the DOT is bittersweet, on the one hand I am sad because I didn’t get to finish what I started and I’ll miss working with good friends. On the other hand, this new job sounds really cool! I am going to be making maps for the CDC about their disease outbreaks and emergency plans (for 24 fans, think CTU work)! I am going to have security clearance and everything. I can’t forget to mention this… since I work for the Feds(not as a govt employee, as a contractor) then I get the same holidays they get, plus 3 weeks from my employer! Oh, AND the office I will be working in is in Chamblee so my commute will remain almost exactly the same!

Kylie and I are very happy with this new job. I am very excited and looking forward to the new opportunity! I feel that this is the right place for me to grow professionally and get some good experience.
