Well, they just called me last week after i posted my resume to them about 2
months ago.
 I just started working for a big financial corp in New York and was
involved in their migrating from an exisitng but screwed up AD/Exchange
Forest to a new one using Quest tools.
By the questions I was asked, I think thats what got their attention.
 Also, the way my career in IT has gone, my last job I was doing everything-
watchguard firewall, cisco router/switch infrastructure, linux mail
gateway,plus exchange/AD and now i'm focused solely on AD/Exchange. Nothing
else.
So i think the MS HR person liked that I had a varied backround before I
came to AD/Exchange.
 Anyway, I hope he calls back to set up the phone tech interview and i'll
let you guys know how that went.
 Thanks
