I started applying for jobs in October. The tallies come to:
Job applications sent: 152+
Rejection letters: 5
Phone interviews: 11
In person interview: 1 (5.5 hours long though)
Job offers: 3 (might have been 4 but I turned down the opportunity to go to Maine)
Chance to turn down a job: PRICELESS! (Sorry had to throw that in)
Did I do too much? I don't think so. In the end, I have a job that sounds exactly like what I was looking for. We'll see if it lives upto my expectations. One good thing has already come of it. Jeff asked for a transfer out to Annapolis and they gave him one ... along with a promotion.
I start May 8th, he starts May 9th. I am alternatingly excited and nervous and terrified of this big move. Any words of advice?
