I think we are all jealous of that
Although with this market, I think I'd start looking after a week or two. I've got friends who have looking almost a year. The jobs just aren't there.
He lives in AK, and apparently in his field (electrical engineering) there's more people hiring than applying right now. I guess his particular company is looking to pull out of the state eventually.
I would be good-to-go for about 6 months...wonder what I could do to piss off my boss?
Just kidding. I would never put my family in that position. Oh yeah, he's also single/no kids which makes the situation even less crazy.
In any case, I'm hoping I might get to see him during his "vacation", it's been a few years.
