    Cool 2017 Update

    It was not that long ago I was sending my DD off to college. She graduated this January with her degree in Biomedical Engineering. She began applying to WDW Professional Internships and other internships and full time positions.

    She was being NLIC'd (No Longer in Consideration) for many of the WDW PI Internships. She got a little desperate and applied to the Disney College Program for a second term. If you are not familiar, you need to have been in school within the last 6 months to apply for either the DCP or the PI programs with WDW. So this was her last chance to do either unless she went back to school to take a class, which she really didn't want to do any time too soon.

    She was offered a couple of positions with local companies which were really not that interesting to her and not really in her speciality area. She was also offered a second opportunity with WDW in the DCP program in her first choice, attractions. For some reason she had selected the extended program which would have been from like June through December. She turned it down. It was hard but she really wanted a PI with WDW. In March she finally was offered a contract position with a local company in her focus area, which will more than likely turn into a FT salaried position by the end of summer. She began working there in April and loves it.

    So....she had pretty much given up the idea that a PI position was in her future this year. But, she finally got an email from HR for a screening interview. It was a non-technical screening interview where selected candidates are then handed to the hiring managers for each department. Still, she did not think it would amount to anything since they are so competitive. Then over two weeks ago, she got the offer for a phone interview! She said they asked to speak with her a little longer than was scheduled and she felt like it went well. But these are so competitive that you just never know. The position she was interviewing for only had one opening. I am not going to mention the position but it is in the engineering technology area.

    Now she finds out that she is being offered the position! Excitement! Yes! Decisions...yes! Some very hard decisions for her to make. She loves where she is at and I think she is also very interested in the position at WDW. I am glad she has options but I know what ever she decides will be hard because she loves both companies and both opportunities.

    On a side note, we are attending our first D23 Expo in July and visiting DL for the very first time!
