Since camperjohn was so happy to let everyone know he got fired, I figured I would counter that by announcing I finally got hired.

For the last year and a half I have been a contractor working for the Capitol Police. Last year the Capitol Police offered me a full-time position which I accepted. After a lengthy wait for budgets to be approved and an extensive background check I finally got my start date.

I will officially be an employee of the Federal Government on April 27th.

Congrats Grinch. Just as a matter of interest, was this Company A or B? (your site eventually loaded). I really should re-read as i've a feeling the answer is already there.

Nope. I will be the Systems Administrator for the security network for the Capitol Police. Basically Big Brother.

You said it BWM. I really don't have to worry about ever getting fired. The benefits are pretty good too. I'll find out more about those at orientation in a few weeks.
