For those of you who read this more than you talk to me, I did finally hear back from eBay at the end of the day Friday. Their HR rep called and left a message, indicating that he wanted me to give him a call back so we could discuss “next steps”. I’m pretty relieved now. I think this means that we’re now into the negotiation stage, and past the stage where they’re questioning whether or not I can do the job they need me to do. So yay!
