Employment – Got a job and love it

Posted in Blogging, Employer Work, Employment, Income, Technology with tags , , , , on 2014/08/06 by rmolby

So after being unemployed for around 7 months, I finally landed myself a job. I’d been hunting for a long time, and by chance so a job posting on Craigslist that sounded interesting, so I sent my resume and quoted the job posting in the email, highlighting my skills and other pertinent information.

I got a reply within a few hours and had an interview that Friday, July the 4th, 2014. I was interview by two cool guys that turned out to be my future co-workers. They recommended me to the boss (and CEO) and I cam in the following Monday to meet him and one of the guys.

We had a cool, candid, and long interview, which resulted in a job offer that day, followed the next day with my co-workers issuing me a tablet PC and getting me started that day.

It has been a wild ride of learning the operation since, but I feel like I have been there for a long time. We click, have similar personalities despite being very unique in our own ways, and similar work attitudes. And we like coffee. One of my co-workers makes awesome lattes. So it’s been a whirlwind of around 5 weeks, and I’m loving it. All I have to do is keep up with the learning and training, and make our clients happy, and I should have guaranteed longevity with this company.

The only thing that could currently pull me away from this is winning the lottery!

Never, ever, think outside the box

Here’s a self-employment reality I’ve never really seen addressed that will go far in preparing you to really make a legitimate go at it.

As with most things we contemplate pursuing, we start of with a desire. In the case of free agency we want freedom in our lives and joy and wealth in our work…

My thoughts:

The author of the referenced article makes some good points to consider when deciding to become self-employed. These are points I also need to consider if I would want to make a go of it. This is why I am currently job hunting, I don’t think I am 100% ready to quit corporate employment cold turkey – not yet!

Ramblings for 2013.11.19

Posted in Blogging, Technology, Wordpress with tags , , , , , , , , on 2013/11/19 by rmolby

Oh boy, so much for posting something every day.

Maybe I won’t make as good a blogger than I thought. Good news is, my job hunt resulted in setting up an interview with an IT staffing company that got hired to find an Server Administrator/Engineer. Scheduled it for Monday, their first open time slot.

Interestingly, this job was only listed on Craigslist. This is my first job interview from such a source. We shall see how it works out.

As for the blog, I will still try to post something every day. I have some back posts I’m working on, so those day gaps will disappear over the next few days.
