Congrats Loose Seal! I look at your info and we are very similar in GPA, location, exams and experience. Difference being that I am a career changer. I hope I can find the same fate.

Gotta job, woot! And right after I gave up looking.

Small firm, small city, modest salary, no relocation expenses, outstanding good growth potential (theoretically), in a field that doesn't usually consider entry level work.

I had emailed one of those websites that said they might be hiring. Nothing about my application or my interview went exceptionally well. In fact, I made several awful blunders. The guy just happened to like me, the way sometimes people like me, and since he was the one to make the decision, that was that. Note to the political forum: When I'm not busy hating capitalism for being so capricious, I love it for being so whimsical.

PS. I'm quitting this place for at least a while. I've got work to do!

I have a pretty odd background, so I don't think many people here would find it useful, and I don't want to give away my id. Feel free to search.
Hell yes !!! Good luck!!!!
