Here’s the skinny on my plans to rule the world.

Rule the world with an Iron Fist

I guess I can announce what’s up, now that I have to talk to my boss about it.

I’m going for the job of Senior Web Developer at my company. It’s a senior position, it pays more, and it’s right up my alley. I’ve always said “if I can find a job that lets me goof off with photoshop and make web pages, I’ll be in heaven!”.

This is that job.

I also know that the manager for that department wants me, and the job is pretty much mine.

So…. now I have to go into my managers office with an Internal Opportunity Request, convince her to sign it, and I’m all set.

That is, unless she kills me.

I’m totally psyched and somewhat terrified at the moment. I’ll let you know how it all worked out.

EDIT: My boss was totally cool.  She said that she figured I’d go for a position like this (as she knows it’s what I love doing).

    I am SO happy for you (as well as fricken GLAD we finally knew what all that was about!)

    I bow before you oh interweb God. I’m so happy to hear when someone finds their dream job and gets it.

    My dream job was advertised recently, HR Manager, New South Wales Fire Brigades.

    I daydreamed about the totally inappropriate recruitment practices I would introduce. For example: Hose length measurement, pectoral musculature inspection, sweep a woman off her feet and carry her to the bedroom strength testing…

    But then my boss walked by and I snapped out of it, sadly.

    I didn’t apply as I am totally lazy being in walking distance to work, but boy, it was close.

    Firemen are TOTALLY my uniformed man of choice, but you Biobutt, are my intraweb God of choice. Congrats!

    Thanks to all!

    It’s not for sure yet (well… it pretty much is, it’s just not been put in writing yet). I’m pretty psyched about it!

    As for your dream job, Eve… damn… now I want to be a fireman instead!

    HAMMERED! LOL. Stay the course has become fire Rummy.
    I love America. I had lost hope and thought to myself what is everyone thinking! But yesterdays vote in America gives me hope that our Democracy has not been totaled destroyed, and that “WE THE PEOPLE” still have a voice. Thanks to all who voted in this election, no matter how you voted.
