I saw your message and it reminded me of myself 18 years ago. I finished
school with a BA in Mechanical Engineering at NC State and, like you, worked
my ass off to find my dream job. Here's my advice to you: stop asking
questions and get to work. Someone thinks you have the knowledge to get this
job, it's you judging by the fact that you worked so hard to get it, now do
Get a handle on your local vendors and use them if they are cheap and
reliable. Do as much as you can yourself, you've got lots of late hours
managing cable ahead of you, and bomb-proof everthing.
Peace and Love,
