I Got The Job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was offered the avnet job at the end of ny trip to chicago today. they though I was a pimp and gave me a written offer!! I'm not going to be poor anymore, yippy!! Looks like i'm moving to chicago and starting either june 1st or the 8th. I have a lot to do before then like graduate, find a place to live ect. I'm excited and the offer looked pretty good. I get a $4k signing/moving bonus too!! its going to be hard not to spend that on a new 600RR.

You just have to pay the tax.

If I remember right there is 4k tax on moving from michigan and using the board to help you relocate here.
I am sure ken or tony would be willing to negotiate that, You just have to ask them

Congrats on the new job! The tech sector is trying to make a turnaround. We may cross paths one day as I know a couple of Avnet guys.

Good luck on your move and finding a house.

Way to go dude, and welcome to Shitcag...I mean Chicago. The weather really suc...is really nice(summers actually are nice), the roads are rougher than the Rocki...I mean they're smooth with no congestion at all ever ,the cost of living is astro...is cheap....OOOOOhhhhhhh, I give up. Well at least we have good food, and some of the people are nice too

Congrats on the new job BTW. As a student myself , I can appreciate when someone has something set up in their field of interest right out of school, Way to go man
