    Hi everyone!

    Since I feel like DPF is more like my Disney Pin Family, I just wanted to share some good news ^__^

    I've been job hunting for full time opportunities for after I graduate in May. I've been really busy traveling to several national engineering conferences, but those totally paid off since I got a lot of interviews. However, it was still a bit difficult since my emphasis area is a bit harder to find jobs for (controls systems engineering for those who are curious). Anyway, I've had a couple "right time, right place" meetings and interviews, which actually ended in offers! However, one company was .. really slow with their offer process and the job wasn't guaranteed to be a controls engineering job. The other company was like a match made in heaven! My final round onsite was about 6 hours long, and I thought it went really well. I guess it did! I received an offer the next week, and I was even able to negotiate for a higher base salary. Yesterday was my birthday and I received the updated offer with the increased base. Best birthday present I could ask for!! While it's not Disney Imagineering, it's a really awesome company, the job is actually a controls engineering job, and I'm super duper excited!!

    Thanks for reading!!! Now, I just need to finish my masters thesis research, so I can actually graduate in May.. woohoo!!!

    A final video to convey my feelings:


    Love,
    Erin

    WOOO!!! Congrats, Erin!! That's a huge accomplishment! You should be super proud of yourself for coming so far. I'm sure it will just be the first stepping stone on your way to becoming an Imagineer. Don't forget us little people when you're building rides at Disneyland! :D

    Yes!!! Actually, they totally recommended having a break before starting, so I’ll get a few months off before I start working!
