Systems Analyst

Today, I accepted a job offer for a Systems Analyst position at PLNU. The dates haven’t been solidified yet, but I’ll probably start at the new position on June 18th.

I’ll move back to the main campus, which means I’ll have the ability to carpool with Kraig, who lives 2 blocks from my house. We also plan to bike to work one or two days a week (more often if he has his way). I’ll also be working in the building behind the library, so I’ll be able to stop by Sudi’s office more often.

I’m pretty excited. I will once again be a paid code monkey! 😉

    It sounds right up your alley. You’ll be the best SysAn (is that a word?) PLNU has ever seen.

    Is Bakersfield an overnighter? That’s pretty far. Pretty fun too, perhaps.

    Bakersfield would most likely be an overnighter… as it’s a 5 hr drive one way.
