Also, they've got a list of qualifications and preferred qualifications and I have everything on the preferred list.
Also, I mistyped in my original request. The salary is $40K (not 45K). I was hoping for 10% wiggle room. I know it's less than I was making, but the benefits are excellent, a small commute, inexpensive parking, free courses, and hopefully more security.
Thanks for all the responses I've received so far!
