I have been waiting so patiently to let this all out but I couldn't until it's official, and guys...it's official.
Jeff was offered a FAB job in Seattle! It has been 2 months in the making and he was offered last Tuesday. Today, he accepted. It's the best feeling in the entire WORLD! Oh I can't wait. So here's how it went down...
Mid January he contacted the recruiting officer in Chicago for a Healthcare consulting job in Seattle. He sent his resume, she forwarded it on to the Healthcare head guy. He was interested. He had a phone interview a week ish later...and then flown out to Seattle the following week. Interview went great and he was really impressed with the company. We then thought we were waiting for a final answer but instead, he had one more guy to meet. So....we waited. The director had a contact in Spokane that he was going to meet with beginning of March, but that was pushed back so he did a phone interview with Jeff instead. Again, things went great. All the people Jeff interviewed/talked with seemed like great people. I'm excited for him.
Then, the following week he was offered the job!! Oh how I remember that morning...so fun. So I may have left out some details but those are the main points. I couldn't WAIT to blog about it but I was just so excited...but Jeff said I had to wait until it's official. SO since he's in Chicago for a conference AND the recruiter/head office is in Chicago, it was appropriate for him to accept it face-to-face. They took him out to lunch and just chatted. I'm just so excited!!!
So he starts mid-July ish. Which at first we were a little like 'dang!' but it actually works out for the better...with a new baby and all. She'll come next week (Ya, next week), and Jeff finishes school/graduates early-mid May. SO that means I'll have help packing May/June with a new baby and Boston. I'm actually grateful for the timing of the new job. We'll take a couple trips to Seattle to figure out where we'll set up camp. Any recommendations are appreciated...:)
We really feel so blessed with this job, and I couldn't more happy/excited for Jeff. He has worked so hard the past couple years in grad school that he totally deserves such a great job. I'm excited for a new city, too! Ya the weather might put a damper on things, but I'm willing to look past that and focus on the MANY things we can do over there!!
So there you have it! We're moving to Seattle!!!!
