I'm writing this post at 4:30 on a  Friday afternoon at ReadyTalk. The engineering team is winding down from a busy week. There are numerous activities going on and I can’t decide which one to join.

In deciding what to do, I carefully take into account where is the easiest place to go without being pegged by a million darts on the. Nerf wars are a very common occurrence late in the day in ReadyTalk Engineering, but on Fridays they seem to take on a life of their own.

So, I think to myself…The closest option would be the 2nd Floor Great Room where there is an intense session of Rock Band going on. With a number of our engineers coming from a musical backgrounds, it is always a pretty impressive showing. Rock Band is also great practice for the Battle of Bands that is supposed to take place between our Sales  and Engineering.

My second option would be to stop off in Team Room A to get a first row seat for a secondary jam session that's taking place. Several of our engineers have grown up perfecting the art of strumming the guitar…all they need now is a lead singer to join the group! Let me know if you are a viable candidate.

My 3rd (and safest option), would be to stay right here at my desk and join in the Open Arena game that takes place every Friday. The only problem with this option is that I have no idea how to even start playing that game. All I know about it is there a lot of people and a lot of guns involved.

My 4th and final option would be to join a couple engineers on an afternoon jog. The only problem with this is that my idea of a jog is a light run/walk around the park and most of the engineers idea of a jog is  similar to a full sprint around several blocks.

Looking over my options I think I am going to grab a beer off the fresh keg that was just delivered from Wynkoop and get ready for my try out as the lead singer in Team Room A.

If you interested in trying out for the lead singer spot or any of our open engineering positions http://www.readytalk.com/about/careers-readytalk please e-mail me directly at Catherine.harrison@readytalk.com.
