Mr. Hedgie just got an e-mail from Zynga saying that he has made it onto the next round of interviews and that they are going to be flying him out to San Francisco ASAP! He is e-mailing them back right now to get travel/interview dates set up but… they mentioned the possibility of a formal offer being made at that time… EEEE! We will have 3 weeks to decide once an offer is made and that means we have A LOT of planning and looking into things (like living situations) to do! I am so crazy excited! I mean, this is just another interview and the reality is, he doesn’t have the job yet and we don’t know 100% sure he will but… how often do they fly people across the country and discuss the protocol for after an offer is made if they aren’t seriously considering making one? Gah! I just had to share! And we seriously need suggestions on where to look for places to live! Looking at the average salary range for his position in the area we are looking at possibly aroung $100,000 which isn’t much considering I wont have a job for a little while and it is San Francisco… Bleh. Not the fun part.
I just had to share and am SO open for suggestions on places to look for apartments, townhomes, or even houses. Zynga is in Soma and we don’t want to live in the city. The most we will commute is an hour- 1 1/2 hours though. Oh, and did I mention he hinted to starting a fmily once we get settled in if we do get the job? Heck yeah!

Congrats! I hope he gets it! I used to live in the East Bay (Walnut Creek area) and loved it there! There are so many great communities to look at in the Bay Area, and it is a bonus if he can just hop on BART to go to work each day.

Congrats! If you don’t want to be in the city try the East Bay off BART (Berkeley, Oakland, Walnut Creek, Pleasanton, etc.) or the Pennisula along CalTrain or BART (Daly City, Burlingame, San Mateo, Belmont, Redwood City).
