The instructor for the class was great, and seems knowledgeable and supportive of people getting places in their careers and opening up new opportunities.
I had the opportunity to car pool with him, which was fabulous on an interaction level (maybe sort of a casual interview sort of thing - do I have a brain & some ambition?) – not to mention it's a looong drive through traffic. I was pleasantly surprised that at the end of the day he mentioned that if I ever needed work he would be willing to help me look for work. He has a fabulous network in the area, so that is a pretty valuable offer. He also wants to see more of my work, both the old old NPBPI stuff and talk about SOX some.
