Ruthless Interview

As many friends and colleagues know my wife and I are pregnant with our first child, a little girl.  As a result we have decided to relocate to Tulsa, OK.  Yes, we are heading to Tulsa to be near family.  Most of my wife's family is from Tulsa and my parents relocated their several years ago for work.  Anticipating this move I have been actively interviewing with many local companies.
