A Phone Call from Yesterday, A Phone Call For Today, A Phone Call for Tomorrow

I just returned the phone call to my contact at the Online Payment Subsidiary of the Big Online Auction Company.

First the bad news, since we last spoke, the positions for which he had made a referral have been filled.

Now the good news. He said that another two openings are coming up in another division, adding that it would require me to "ramp up" some because the skills aren't quite the same as the position that I was originally offered. He said that they were open to hiring an experienced developer who had the desire to learn it. The pay and benefits would remain unchanged for the position.

We set up a time for me have a half-hour conversation with the manager of the department. It takes place sometime mid-day, so it will line up well with a lunch break.

On a side note, I also received a phone call from the local startup to see whether I was still in the market. The manager said that there was no rush on the offer deadline, and if there was anything they could do to help me make the decision, let them know.
