    EMC had a reputation for holding huge job fairs, hiring 1,000 people for a project and discarding over 700 of them at the end. It was their way of performance management, it was brutal and insulting. But it made it easier for them to fire a bunch instead of evaluating them and matching their skills to current projects.

    Still waiting to hear if I got the position. I know I'm still in consideration, just haven't heard yes/no.

    I check in with my recruiter every day/every 2 days

    Good things come to those who never, ever give up.

    Got a phone call approximately 40 minutes ago with a job offer.

    I'm shocked and stunned, beyond belief.

    As the old saying goes: dreams, they do come true.

    I'll add my congratulations. Any idea what your assignment(s) will be?

    Once you get there, be sure to tell them how much you like motorsports and that they should be participating in Nascar and all other major forms of US Motorsports ;).

    Congratulations! Thanks for sharing this journey. It has been an enjoyable trip to observe. Best of luck in your engineering career. I'm in my 37th year and wouldn't change my choice.

    I'll be working on chassis mounts: engine, body, trans

    The motorsports thing might be above my paygrade right now, but I'll try

    Something to aspire to. I don't know about pay grade but there might actually be less internal competition for those type of slots, if they even exist these days (Fast Eddie might know). Working in motorsports programs often involves lots of travel and weekend work. A lot of family guys don't want that.
