Job Search Update (I'm nout counting chickens yet)

I hope I don't frustrate any of the unemployed job seekers here, but things in my replacement search are looking possibly promising.

This afternoon, I got a call from the Staffing person at Qualcomm informing me that the team was impressed with my skills and will probably make an offer after checking my references. Since I'm pretty sure that my references will all give me good recommendations, this offer seems fairly probable.

Yesterday I had a long talk with an engineer at Microsoft, and the technical part of the interview went well. I might be a bit leery of the position since I'm not 100% sure that MS is the most reliable company to be doing what that team is doing. On the other hand, the job sounds like it could be interesting.

Today, I had a shorter talk with Intel. The questions were more behavioral than technical, and I'm not sure how well I did. Should this turn into an offer (an in-person interview would have to happen first) it would have one decent advantage -- I have family (8 members to be exact) in Albuquerque and the job would be in Rio Rancho (13 minutes from my parent's house according to Google Maps -- probably longer at rush hour). On the other hand, there is no relocation so we'd have to pay for the move and figure out how to live in Albuquerque while paying for the house here until it sells. (The only thought I've had on that last situation would be for me to live with my parents, and Tara and Derrick only follow after the house sells. Not ideal, but it could work)

And, of course, I still have my current job which doesn't require relocation; just it is getting to be less and less a good match for my skills.

So, by the end of the summer, I could be still here, in San Diego, Seattle or Albuquerque. Time will tell.
