I’ve been at my present company for about 9 months, I’m happy here – getting the hang of things, supporting this, coming up with some cool solutions to make things easier for people. The commute is about an hour each way, but it’s worth it. I’m happy, I get out on time, have a really good home/work balance.
Then a recruiter drops me a line and throws everything into a spin. I wasn’t looking, hadn’t even updated my resume. Calls me with an opportunity to work for a really great company, less than two miles from my house. I had no idea this company was even there. Had a great interview, really liked what I experienced there and what they’re offering as far as tech and solutions they’re looking to build.
On April 10th, i’ll start at Applegate Farms as a Business Intelligence Developer, working with a great bunch of people. I’ve never had more of a stake in a company than I will with this one – they were one of the first products we found when Gillian was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2007. They make meats and cheeses, and I gotta say, some of the best bacon I’ve ever had.
Sometimes the universe just lines things up for you. WOO!
