Job hunt continues
For those of you who know that John has been pursuing a consulting specialist position with Gallup, I thought I would give you the update. John went out to Omaha, Nebraska on the 3rd and had a good round of interviews there and we were very hopeful for a positive outcome. In fact, they all but offered John the job, telling him who his supervisor would be and that they were looking forward to having him in the office. Then, on Tuesday, we received a call informing us that they had not selected John for the position. The news came as a surprise, but we are doing fine. In the beginning, John applied for a position as an associate analyst, and in the process of interviewing, Gallup requested him to apply for the consulting specialist position as well. John is still in the running for the position he orignally applied for. Unfortunately, they are not hiring for that job until May 2009, so there is a little more wait involved. Oh well, life goes on and we are moving forward. Instead of a setback, we are viewing our position as still being on track for what we originally anticipated.
