    This is about my last opportunity before really bad things start to happen, like a domino effect I'm afraid.

    I have a great opportunity that I'll be interviewing for tomorrow and hopefully they won't detect just how much I need this job. No place to go as of the 31st, not much $$ to speak of at all, divorce pending, don't want to be away from son...

    This opportunity is with another law firm, apparently my resume screams out for the law field when read. I'm down to the final 6 and I'm meeting with them at 10am tomorrow. They made what I thought was a strange request though that had me nervous:

    Although I've done tons of that type of documentation over the years, who the hell ever keeps that stuff and brings it home? Luckily for me my buddy at my last place of employment just FTP'd me about 50meg of zipped documents covering all of those aspects. In reality, a ton of them were written by me over the past couple of years, but I may borrow a few too. :)

    This is a really scary time for me. I'm fearing that everything I have worked so hard for in the past 10-15 years is about to be flushed leaving me on the side of the road like a recent high school grad.

    Hopefully this one will finally go my way...

    Fuck you, Murphy's Law, and stay away from me for at least one damn day!

    Jim, if there is any identifying information about other companies, etc., in those docs, it would be good to redact it. You wouldn't want the firm to think you aren't careful about confidentiality.

    I really hope you get this job. :) :beer:

    I'm going through that as we speak. Most are just documentation of typical software installations, inventory prep sheets & checklists, excel sheets dealing with inventory... Those that I plan on bringing along will be edited to remove any company info and/or logos, as well as any actual inventory.

    Thanks!

    Been up literally most of the night stressing and worrying, studying, analyzing documents... Of course coffee helped a little bit! :cof:

    I'm about to leave and I feel like I'm about to throw up. Shaky, sweaty.. but I look good in my new suit!

    If these fuckers don't hire me they should at least compensate me for the hell they've put me through! :)

    On my way...
