New job.

Well I took a new job this weekend. I went to a major internet service provider this Friday and walked in for a laugh with my resume. Walking in the front desk phoned in HR and a guy came out to see me. He looked over my resume once and asked me when I would want to start.
I went all googly eyed and was shocked. I said today... He laughed and told me to come in on Saturday.

I dorve up this morning and walked in, I was taken back and given a second interview. I passed with flying colours. I was then made to take many test's and passed those in flying colours.

Amazed they sat me down and we barterd over payscale, hours and more. After all was said and done I was signed on for a job that pays doubble what I already make, I got the hours I have always dreamed of, and every desire and whim I ever wanted in a job. Amazed I stumbled out in the afternoon to buy a Dr Pepper and smoke one cig after another shaking like a leaf.
The kicker?

I don't know crap about tech support.

The seller in my resume?

My job skills and work load I've had in the job's from hell over the last three years in logistics. I passed with a 100% score on the test's while I was told most folks on do from 40% to 60%.

Amazing....

I start on Monday.

Scared.
Nervous.
Worried.

But I know I can do it.

How in the hell did I end up from logistics to Tech support for a fortune 500 company on just a jest and whim?

Damn.

Masseur. Come to Texas. Bet you could find a job for a man of your skills here. Fresh start and a wonderful place to live. (Metroplex area)
