Job Search Update

I had said we were moving North at the start of July. That's still the plan, but the time's coming up quickly, and it feels even closer than it is.

I'm working on the whole job front: there are two "possibles" that are still in limbo. I'm really, really hoping one of those works out, as it would make life a lot less complicated: both of those are remote work, which would allow us to live virtually anywhere. Both of them are with people I know, which has definite benefits.

On the "news" front, I got a call out of the blue from a company in Western Canada looking for a Unix sysadmin. I have an over-the-phone job interview with them tomorrow afternoon. I'm not sure how this is going to work out, but calls out of the blue always get my attention; and better, it's from a hiring manager rather than a headhunter. Perhaps it's "the job", maybe not. This job is not without some caveats: there are some drawbacks I'm aware of even before the interview. But we try and live like servants, not like the Master, so we are looking to discern whether this is His plan.

Either way, a job interview is a good thing, and it's a good sign that my resume is getting notice in Canada, not just the southeastern USA.

I think you should add some suspense music.
