This last month has been brutal for any number of reasons, none the least that I’ve been hard at work trying to line up employment. That’s always an agonizing process, but I’ve been pretty stunned at the various opportunities which landed in my lap, including several which came out of the blue, one of which completely knocked me over.
The process of interviews and weighing options is over, though: I start work on 7/31 for NuSoft Solutions as a principal consultant in Cincinnati, Ohio. This is an exciting position for me, and I’m chuffed about going to work for them in no small part because of great feedback I’ve gotten from Ben Carey and Drew Robbins, both of whom used to work there.
At some point I’ll write up a separate post on the long, convoluted journey I’ve had over the last six years since setting parenting as #1 priority over work. Six months ago I was seriously wigged out about what would happen when I started to look for full-time work again — just ask James or Josh (who gave me a much needed Dope Slap some time back), as they suffered through some of (a lot of?) my whiny crap.
Now I’m nearly done with the book, and I’m pumped up about heading off to a great company to get great stuff in place for customers.
Life is good.
