So we are looking into moving up that direction pretty soon because Brian HATES, did I emphasize HATES, commuting! as long as we can find something decent up in that area.
Here is the back story. Brian did his senior project all of last school year with L-3. They really liked his work then. One of the full-time employees actually contacted him about this position, and he interviewed there 2 weeks ago. The guy who called today said that they hired someone to fill the co-op on a longer term basis, but that they created this entirely different co-op position for Brian because they liked him that much! They don't want to hire him as a long term co-op because they say it wouldn't be fair to him to stay on as an intern after he graduates - thus the hiring full-time after he graduates option. (Its all about the pay increase)
Brian thinks it has something to do with his knowledge of LEAN. I know it all has to do with me keeping a positive attitude! HA! I just said yesterday that we would get a call today that he got the job and we would be moving in a few weeks. The move is still up in the air, but the job part certainly did happen!
Brian is over the moon with relief! And in 2 weeks I will have health benefits! YAY! Internship is happening, money will be coming in, graduation is in site! Woohoo! I think they even have tuition reimbursement for his practicum credits.
We'll still be in UT, but we are not jobless anymore!
