Employment – Another new job!

So, this is week four of yet another new job – and I’m loving this one, too.

As it turned out, about 4-5 weeks ago a former co-worker of mine made me aware of a job position, and after hearing and reading about the employee benefits, and potential salary range, I took the plunge and applied.

Low and behold, I got a call in the middle of May, and by then end of May 2015 I was hired and working for the new employer.

I have to say, in some ways this job is easier due to the corporate compartmentalization, and all the pre-built, organized way of doing business. I have virtually no engineering to accomplish, I can shine at what I do best, which is a troubleshooter of computer and networked peripherals.

Add to that the better offering of benefits in health, life and retirement, and I am a much happier camper. So, I can say, I liked the last job very much, and I liked all the people I worked with, but I like this current job better; while I miss the previous co-workers, my current bunch are great, just as relaxed and mellow, and I am in my element.

Thank you to my fellow co-worker for getting my attention and pushing me to apply! You know how you are 🙂

Employment – Got a job and love it

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!

Crosspressed – Crunch Time

Posted in Blogging, Economy with tags , , , on 2013/11/20 by rmolby

Basically our future looks bleak though not of our making. We had taken government advice on planning for our “retirement” years ago only for them to move the goal posts regarding state pension age. Uncontrolled cheap immigrant labor has taken the majority of jobs plus we now have our age going against us regarding looking for work. Whilst we are JUST holding our heads above water, our legs are going to be kicked out from under us by economics and government policies.To do nothing is not an option as we will eventually drown having lost everything.

My thoughts:

As we can see from the referenced work, the average Joe in the UK is in the same boat as the average Joe in the USA… even though the revolutionaries fought so hard to separate the future USA from the British rule, we are still economically linked, and because of this economic relationship, we are on the same boat headed for the iceberg… it is just a matter of when, not if…
