I just wanted to let everyone know I am starting my new Full-Time job this coming Monday, the 17th. It took a couple of months to go through the hiring process and I made it through alive!

The place is called Kiva, they do a lot of managed IT services, residential and business DSL and server hosting, just to name a few things. They are owned by Carmel-based eGIX and Cincinnati Bell.

I can't wait, I've been wanting to learn Cisco so badly, and they are giving me that opportunity!

Wish me luck!

Get that CCNA, Duke. That's a salary booster, right there. Congrats.

Good luck Dukie.

I start my first new job in almost 13 years on Monday as well. I'm flipping from being a supplier to retailers to being a retailer buying from suppliers.

Going to be a huge change.

I wish you the best of luck.

Hopefully, the dedication you display in this forum matches that you show at the workplace - if it does, you'll be fine. Good luck sir.

Thank you for the words of encouragement, all.

My family, Pacers, and work are my three main devotions in life.

As someone who may, God willing, in a few weeks start a career where I can really utilize my degree, I can only imagine how stoked you are to have such an opportunity.

Best of luck Dukie and make the most of it.

I have two classes until my degree is finished. I get an opportunity with this company to complete it.

Congrats to you as well!

Thanks!

One question, though. Are the big-boy pants supposed to itch this badly?

Gyron

If you got them from Btown, You're lucky if itching is all they are doing.......

Better see a doctor.
