HOORAY! (For real this time)

Looks like I have *finally* landed a job!
This is the email I just received from Dr. A at the Mayo Clinic:

Kathryn: ... Whenever you have a chance, give me a call at #### to discuss specifics. I know for sure that I'll need 3 letters of recommendation (electronically or hard copy, your choice) and a current cv to begin the paperwork here. We should discuss when you wish to start, etc etc. Looking forward greatly to your coming, and give me a call when convienant, or, send me a time and we'll plan to mutually be at a phone...feel free to send me a # if you wish me to call.

You can bet I both emailed and called (unfortunately he wasn't at his phone) within seconds. I've also updated my CV and sent emails to my committee members and advisor asking for recommendation letters to be sent to Dr. A. All within the last 3 minutes.

And now all I want to do for the rest of the afternoon is look up apartments in Rochester...

As such a hot commodity, it kills me to see people jerk you around. Apparently, professionalism does not apply to interviewing and hiring potential post-doc applicants. It is about time you have a job. Hopefully your new boss is a PI who will finally appreciate the work that you do and recognize you as a "real" person. Stupid DB.

I feel terrible for ruining the party, Lil' K, but I think someone should speak up...

#### is not a real phone number.

Chris - I'm just trying to protect the innocent. I know how you all get - my poor future boss would get all kinds of drunk dialing messages on his office phone on Monday mornings.

Beaker - are you Roastie's mom?
