Got a call at 4:30 from a guy I handed my resume in to, thinking he was another recruitment specialist. Turns out, he's the owner/boss/HR guy of a company that does what my old company used to do before they got bought out by Big American Corporation, with two people I've worked with before - one of them the woman who connected me to the last job!

The job would involve going out as a contractor to companies for short stints, getting the job done, but very small, simple stuff - not the fancy pants new tech - which suits me fine, TBH. And there's some flexibility in it - they were asking what days I'm free, whether I have family and needed to work around any arrangements...

The owner/boss/HR guy talked to me for about 20 minutes, then set up a call from his more technically minded co-owner/colleague for tomorrow afternoon. Five minutes later, tech-minded co-owner/colleague called and we chatted about my skills and what I knew, things I'd worked with, and so forth.

I think it went well?

It sounds pretty good, all things considered. And it sounds like they're willing to offer me either contract or permanent at this point. I asked for contract for the moment and owner/boss/HR guy seemed pretty pleased with that.

It will mean an end to the last six months of futzing around, and it's been really rather nice, but it will also mean income, which is also really rather nice, so...

Cross fingers, send vibes, pray!
