Workin' 9-to-5 (ok, 8-to-6)

This week Cole started his first post-college "grown-up" job as an analysis with the operations office of Goldman Sachs here in Salt Lake. We are really excited for this opportunity but believe me, it wasn't a quick process...

July:
Cole did an internship with GS and L-O-V-E-D it.

September:
Cole was offered a full time position for January (and accepted it, of course).

October-November:
Maura and Cole feel pretty comfy during Cole's last semester of school.

December:
Maura and Cole wonder why he hasn't received a start date for January.

January:
The first of the month comes and goes, Maura starts to think maybe, February 1?

February:
Month begins and Cole gets an email saying March 2.

February (one week in):
Cole gets another email saying July 16. (With the economy being what it is, we were excited to still have an offer but honestly bummed that Cole would have to wait so long to get started.)

Then, three weeks ago Cole gets a call asking if there is any chance he can start in just 10 days...

We respond, Heck Ya!
