Had a really good discussion with the hiring manager for that PM gig in the Visual Studio group. I probably don't have the exact experience he'd like, so it's probably not one they'll consider me for. With that said, he thinks I have a lot of different knowledge and experience that people in the bigger group (server and tools) need, and he wants to meet up with me if at all possible while I'm there.
That's the interesting angle at this point. I find myself networking to a lot of people right now that I had never heard of two weeks ago. If the STO gig doesn't pan out, I need to keep this momentum and stay engaged with as many people as possible. The more I learn about what goes on there, the more I realize that it feels like the place I need to be. I don't think I've ever been excited about a company like this before. It feels different.
Just under two weeks to go.
