In my case, it was a big let-down on the work search front. Though the commute would have been difficult, and the company not exactly Powerdown-proofed, the position sounded really interesting (and fun) and I seemed to get on quite well with the people there. Nevertheless, after the second interview, they passed. Reading between several lines, I think they're being extremely picky. Which is their right of course. I also get the feeling that this position has been open for quite a long while.
So, while I'm on this trip, including stops in San Jose, LA, and the Seattle area, I have this niggling Must Find Work mantra going through the back of my mind.
I am having a good time though. More on that later.
