Surviving the First Meeting and Some More Job News

Spent most of the morning and early afternoon getting face time with the client. Fortunately, I was there primarily just as a backup for answering questions and maintaining the facade that our company has employees.

My head was hurting through most of it. At first I thought it might be some stress, but as the day dragged on I came to the conclusion that it had more to do with that massive temperature swing that we had earlier in the day.

I did pick up a little piece of trivia with some personal interest. The newest hire in the client group just happens to have worked for the startup that I interviewed with back in early May. He didn't elaborate much on why he left, but the nature of his remarks led me to believe he wasn't happy with the way things were going over there. If I can get a bit closer into his comfort zone, I might try to pick his brain some more. I'd love to know whether my gut was right about the company.

I got a call from the recruiter who set me up with The Cable Guys back in early September. He was plugging a company on the northwest side, claiming they had an interest in my resume. I don't fully trust him. The last attempt at getting me in somewhere didn't get anywhere. He said he'd submit my resume, and then about a week later, I got some rambling e-mail from him on the state of the local market.
