I got a pretty awesome job from a friend of mine. He was a big wig at this software company in Colorado and not coincidentally he was married to the daughter of the person who founded the company. In fact the two of them were dating when I knew them in college. At any rate they needed someone with my qualifications and they just called me out of the blue. Of course I was only interested once I realized that it was a great opportunity. At the moment I am looking for an apartment in Colorado Springs while I am living in one of those extended stay hotels.
