Well, the Critchlows actually have some exciting news! It all started about 2 months ago. For one of his classes Mark had posted his resume onto Y-Careers, a network the school has for students to upload their resumes so that employers can list job openings they may have as well as search for qualified candidates for job positions they have available. He recieved an email from a company, URS Washington Divison (www.wgint.com), who had seen his resume and wanted to have a phone interview with him.
As we all know, Mark would love one day to have his own business, and that had been the route we were planning on pursuing, following graduation, here in Rexburg so Mark didn't think much of this job. But he didn't want to let an opportunity pass by so he went ahead with the interview. After the interview he was notified that someone from the company would be coming to Rexburg to host an information meeting and would like Mark to attend the meeting and then would like to interview him in person the following day. After learning this Mark decided to do a little research about the company.
Many things about the company caught Marks eye and sparked interest (Granted, Mark hasn't had much interest in working for anyone at all). The more research he did the more he liked the company so he decided to take it more seriously. There were about 15 people interviewed the same day Mark was interviewed and they were told that they would hear back from the company within 2 weeks (this was a Thursday). Well Mark and 3 others from BYU-Idaho got a phone call on Monday (just 3 days later) and they wanted to fly them to Cleveland for a final round of interviews. Mark was excited!
Well Mark recieved a phone call today and they offered him the position in Cleveland! So he got the job and we are packing our bags!! Many of you may think we are crazy, seeing as we just bought a townhome here in Rexburg about 4 months ago, but we already have renters lined up and things are falling into place. We feel that this is what is best for our little family and we are excited to see what life brings us!! We can't wait to be close to family again and to go back east!
