I work in IT for the Federal government as a developer. I recently applied for a Lead Analyst position and got select for an interview. I had the interview 4 days ago and didn't think it went particularly well. I didn't know the answer to one of the technical questions at all and admitted it. This afternoon I just found out that I got the job! Still in shock. This happened so fast, so unusual for a government position. I start the new position in 2 weeks.
I love it when friends we know get good things in Life.
