    01/25/18 14:57 PM . Tim Bauer. Offer still in progress (continue to hold)

    01/18/18 14:13 PM . Tim Bauer. Still on hold. Agent indicated they have a guy they are close to offer on (so waiting for that to resolve).

    01/03/18 20:34 PM . Tim Bauer. Hold on this. Agent indicated this a.m. that they are 'good for now'. I'll loop back if they ask for more options.

    12/28/17 14:42 PM . Tim Bauer. Still going per agent

    12/21/17 19:23 PM . Tim Bauer. Still going per agent.

    12/20/17 14:59 PM . Tim Bauer. Agent requests video call with our submission.

    12/14/17 14:41 PM . Tim Bauer. Still open but agent indicated there are 6 candidates in play (tech eval stage) so might want to hold till that resolves.

    12/06/17 17:04 PM . Tim Bauer. Hold here. Agent is reviewing candidates that we have submitted. Will reopen if they want to see more.

    12/06/17 16:22 PM . Tim Bauer. Shared 2nd candidate to Agent. 2 years w/ zOS. 8 yrs total.

    12/05/17 19:17 PM . Tim Bauer. Submitted one candidate w/ good exposure to DB2 on AIX/zOS although it was a tick dated (2010) and recent roles seemed more lead. So that would be the gap we want to fill if we submit more (more recent DB2 zOS hands on exposure w/ similar years).

    12/04/17 20:48 PM . Tim Bauer. Updated to reflect non-local candidates are ok if they will relocate @ their cost
