Fast forward to about a year later: the Quality Cell experience turned out to be kind of a crappy one, resulting in me being distinctly unhappy about the entire situation and writing the occasional blog post about it. Yogi thankfully happened to read that entry and immediately chatted me up on AOL Instant Messenger to let me know about an open full time position that had opened up at the medical devices company. By the end of the week - June 27, 2008, to be exact - I had sent in my résumé and scheduled an interview for the following week.
My first day back at the medical devices company as a full time employee was on July 21, 2008. This past year has been intellectually stimulated, challenging, educational, well compensated, and pretty much everything anyone could hope for in a job. My coworkers continue to be awesome and I'm grateful to be here. More than anything else, though, I'm grateful that Yogi took the time to let me know about the job here - it's made a huge difference in my quality of life.
So: thanks, Yogi!
