New job!

I got a call yesterday offering me the job that I really, really wanted.  I start on 6/17.

Not sure if I am supposed to blog the company name.  In any case, I will be working in the QA department of a travel company.  I'll be writing automation tests, working on the test database, and whatever else comes up. It's QA work, but with a development flavor

Some of the reasons I'm so psyched, in no particular order -

  • I start on 6/17, which gives me a little more time to get Angel healed before I leave her all day with Bogie. 
  • I have worked with 7 of the people already in the department, and that includes my new boss.  Less need to prove myself.  These people already know what I can do. 
  • There is a blend of telecommute and in-office days.  A nice mix of days spent with my dogs and in face-to-face contact with humans.  
  • On-site cafeteria and fitness center, flexible hours, casual dress code. 
  • The company charities include a pet charity.  
  • The company is Fragrance-Free, so I won't have to worry about my migraines being triggered by someone's cologne. 

As much as I have enjoyed the leisure of not working, I'm very excited to be going back to work.
