    Default New Beginnings

    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!

    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.

    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?
