Ooooh, shiny.

Jobbity-job-job. Recruiter call not five minutes ago, opening doing
embedded systems at 3M, using GPS and strobe lights. Fun stuff. It's
contract, long term (like a couple of years), pay rate is close to what
I'm getting paid now, but I'd get to live at home. W2 instead of 1099,
and they have things like health insurance available.

Downside is they need somebody now. They might be willing to wait until
I'm done down here since I'm so close. If they are, it would probably
mean no time off and starting immediately on May 2nd.

Hell, at least it's promising.

Congrats! Everyone I know who works at 3M loves it there.

Working with non-idiots would practically be a vacation!

No chance of skiiving off early from Deere God?

Well, it isn't an offer yet. If it actually becomes something more than a phone call from a recruiter, I may see if I can jump ship early.

Deere tends to be very anal about contracts though.

If you don't need the reference, jump ship now.

It needs to be something more concrete.

I did some contract work at 3M and really enjoyed it. I probably wouldn't have left, but I was offered a good job five minutes from my house.
