No, I haven't secured a full-time gig just yet, but I did get a call this morning about a 6 figure gig, contracting with a federal agency (And people WRONGLY think you can't get paid working with the Gov't, LOL!!). Now this gig will literally mean that my professional life has come full circle since I'll be indirectly working with data from the Pharmaceutical industry. And it's full circle because I originally moved to DC to accept a position with an agency directly involved with the FDA and Big Pharma!
So what's this gig that's pays so well and looks absolutely fabulous from the "outside"? The formal title is Research Informatics Specialist which means that EVERYTHING I'm learning now in Informatics and 90% of my formal education is directly applicable to this job, assuming the job description is correct! And they'll pay for me to take PhD courses in Informatics too! But what I'm most excited about is the prospect of playing dress up for work.
Now I'm trying not to get all geeked up about this gig because that hasn't gotten me ANYWHERE lately, LOL!!! But like I've mentioned before and never really practiced, I'm going to go with the flow so to speak, while staying "prayed up" so that when the time comes, I'll make a good job decision!!!
Speaking of money, here's one of my all time favorite money songs sang by the Ojay's from the 1970's on Soooooooooooooooooooooooooullllll Traaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaain:
