Yahoo for you both! As far as the degrees, I have had to submit them or have them background checked for several positions, I thought it was automatic now? I do think things are looking up, and with the flood of money the government is throwing into the economy, it should be good for a few years to come. My Dh had lunch with a recruiter yesterday and he said hiring in the IT field is at the level it was in 1999 before the Y2k craze. He heard from other recruiters in different fields that there is more demand out there than there has been in the past decade.

Congratulations! I think it is odd that they check diplomas though.

They check diplomas??? Good thing I didn't auction off mine on eBay. 

Happy dance for you, too!
