After many years and over 300 hours of training I'm now a certified flight instructor!! :dance:

Today I had my first flight with a student. He's well along in his training so it was an easy introduction to my new profession. This job will be challenging but I'm so excited! It's nice finally getting paid to fly!
Congrats!

Congratulations, and may you feel the envy irradiating from my soul xD

As for myself, having received my first paycheck at my new job today, I can now say I'm a professional software developer. Hurrah!

I got a “promotion.”

Since 2012, I’ve been in field service for gas and oil burners. One of our top guys left in January and the office has been scrambling for a person who knows tech for calls, tricky parts search and quoting, RMA processing, and of course my “favorite” contractor training. The previous guy did this and now I’m in charge. Lately I’ve grown tired of traveling across the country every week having no home life except for the weekends. This hopefully is a good change. I’m promised a raise will happen but nothing is written so when it doesn’t happen, I’ll point it out again. If again nothing changes I’ll request to move back into the field because what’s the point of taking on higher responsibility without extra compensation?

This is a new thread to me. Well, I've become a product owner at work as of last month. Sadly, it seems to be a bit like 93Flareside's "promotion" where it's just another hat I wear in the meantime with no monetary compensation, but maybe that'll change when the VC company that bought us takes the freeze off raises.

Oh, and last year this happened:

I guess I'm a bit late on that one.
