My search is over. The best part was that I not only secured a position, but that I secured a position with a company for whom I've had a great amount of respect for the past few years. My new employer, NouvEON, offers consulting services in the Charlotte, NC area and in cities nearby throughout the southeast. I had the pleasure of working with some NouvEON consultants in a previous position and had nothing but fond memories of their work ethic, code quality, and commitment to delivering the best product possible. I am proud to have secured a position doing what I love doing - consulting with small companies - via NouvEON, and look forward to helping our clients achieve success. I couldn't be happier and more excited to be consulting again, and for an organization that I've been truly admiring since my first experience with their staff.
I really appreciate all the help my colleagues provided me and all the support I received from friends, family, and my professional network.Like any industry, information technology professionals should nurture and maintain their relationships - with past clients, employers, recruiters, and peers. I've been reminded of the most valuable lesson one can learn about being a professional - your network will work as hard for you as you do for it. When I sounded the alarm of my need for work I had colleagues from every corner of my career pop up to help me. My relationship with the NouvEON consultants helped me out tremendously, and I wholeheartedly appreciate their referral to my new employer. I am very excited for my own fortune and for the blessing of being employed by such an exciting company.
Things are going well. I'm finding a good deal of leads and getting back into the technology I've for so long enjoyed only to have been forced to abandon for the last year in my daily work life.
As of this afternoon I am officially on the market. I'd gone in a different direction with my career than I think I maybe should have and - in retrospect - feel this might steer things back on the course I should've been on the whole time. My schtick is browser-based application development, the middleware that drives that type of application, and whenever possible the act of educating people in the teensy shreds of knowledge I've gained over the years in knowing how to do such arts on their own. I hadn't been doing many of those things in my last position.
Nick B writes today about some of the traditional "I'm smarter than you OR your mama" developers face. Though I would agree with an overwhelming majority of the points he makes and with virtually all of his rather comical approach, I feel as though I have something to add.
