I got a call a couple days ago for an interview - I wasn't really sure about the company or what they were looking for, but since the project I'm working on now is nearing the end, I decided to go to the interview to keep my options open. I spent 6 months last year looking for work, but I can't let that happen now with Alex here.
It turns out that it's a really cool position doing J2EE development for an international HR corporation. I had an interview with the Development Manager and the senior technical guy and the conversation seemed to go really well and then I talked to their boss who's actually an American here from San Francisco! Very cool to have part of my interview in English.
When I got home there was an email waiting for me with an offer! Very nice... Basically the same money that I'm earning now, but doing some cool stuff (with WebLogic, yay!) (Side note: The email was my first "real-world" test of OpenOffice actually, the offer was in MS Word format. No problems opening or reading it. Nice.) I'm most likely going to accept the offer, but I have to manage the transition out of my current project. I want to make sure my commitments are met there before I move on. We're working on "phase 2" which should be done in the next couple weeks, but I don't want to leave them high and dry, so we'll see how difficult or long the move is.
My new employers know about my blog (hola!) - I actually showed it off proudly since we swapping cool Java tech sites and I wanted to point out all the amazing Java Bloggers there are out there - so anyways, that'll be the end of my opinions on this for a while. I'll keep you posted on the job-transition part.
