New job

From: Billy 
------------------------------------------------------
How's been a Red Hat employee for 3 days?

This guy!

Anyways. I'm a Solutions Architect for the southeast, mostly Florida for now, but I'll be moving up to Atlanta in about 4-6 months. I'm still little green around the products, but I'm learning as fast as I can!

Anyways, I'll be around more, and may even have some accounts to support in Chattanooga by the end of summer.

Would love to attend some chugalug lunches after I get settled.

=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ Congrats man! I an envious. How is it working for Red Hat?

=============================================================== From: Billy ------------------------------------------------------ Just an example: Their new hire process is amazing. Organized, with an intro to the company a= nd open source. Even as someone familiar with opensource (and participatory a= nd knowledgable about Red Hat), I learned new things. By the 2nd day, my equipment was ready to go, Logins completed, was walked t= hrough email, vpns, Hr website. In the three day period, they walked me through just about every aspect of t= he company and each division and group. Everyone was super laid back and friendly. =46rom the very top and all the down opensource is a passion, and you can fe= el it. And that's just the new hire process. --b Sent from my iPhone anting to work for them for a long time.
