Well, I suppose there are some of you wondering what happened about the job. As I predicted, I didn't get it. But not for the reasons I thought. There just happened to be a more qualified candidate. That said, apparently, I "blew away" the interview panel. So much so, that they decided to promote me up a grade level anyway, and put me in charge of mentoring and education.
Me, a mentor. Whodathunkit?
