Maybe the role's not easy, maybe the prize is small...

The redoubled and retripled effort on the job hunt have finally paid off.

On Friday, I start a three-month stint at a local Civil Engineering firm, working on a GIS project.

That's right, I've finally found work in my field.

While I was waiting for a final answer from my new employers, I was contacted by a representative of a tech-oriented headhunting firm. I interviewed there today, and told them I wouldn't be available until July; they, in turn, have no problem with that, and will keep looking for positions for which I'd be a good fit.

Oh, and quelonzia's new car finally arrived today -- but I'll let her squee about that in her own journal.


Limelight
The Alan Parsons Project
1986

I can see the glow of a distant sun
I can feel it inside
Maybe this day could be the one

I can hear the roar of a distant crowd
They are waiting for me
Calling my name
Shouting out loud

Holding on isn't always easy
I ain't gonna change my mind

Limelight, you were all I ever wanted
Since it all began
Limelight, shining on me
Telling the world who I am
Limelight, don't let me slip right through your fingers
There's a long way to fall
After all the years of waiting
I'm gonna show them all

I can see the world in a different light
Now it's easy to say
Where I went wrong
What I did right

I can hear the beat of a different drum
Take it all in my stride
Hold my head high
Second to none

Holding on wasn't always easy
Nothing can change my mind

Limelight, you were all I ever wanted
Since it all began
Limelight, shining on me,
Telling the world who I am
Limelight, don't let me slip right through your fingers
There's a long way to fall
After the years of waiting,
I'm gonna show them all

Maybe the role's not easy
Maybe the prize is small
After all the years of waiting
I'm gonna show them all
