I'm getting somewhere - or at least Springfield, MO. Last week I flew to Springfield for a job interview with Noble - a food marketing company. It was an experience, to say the least. There's something about me and the small midwestern towns. One of my friends remarked that Springfield will make Des Moines seem like Chicago - that says something.
Anyway, it was a good practice for future interviews. The company made me an offer for a job. They are working on a job description, and we have agreed to talk in a few weeks when I'll be done with school to schedule a second visit to Springfield to allow me to see the town.
