Swimming in a sea of opportunity.

It is crazy to think it has only been two weeks since my last day of work at Joyent, and the support and outreach I have received from the community around me can be described by one simple word: Incredible.

Thank you.

The time has flown by; filled with phone calls, emails, text messages and meetings – all focused on opportunities being presented to me from people who respect the work I do, and wish to see me succeed.

Thank you.

The challenge for me now is figuring out what I want to do. It is an important question to ask oneself, and surprisingly, a question I am finding harder to answer than I thought. An easier thing for me to nail down is I know what I do not wish to do, and I know the environment I do not wish to work within so I am sure the what I want to do will come out of that.

So I am taking a little time to breathe, to soak it in, as that will ensure the next role I jump into is the right role…for me. All I know is I am happier than I have been in a long time…and I have the community of people around me to thank for that.

Thank you.

Share the love

    Eugene, simply - I want to work with a team that believes in the value of reputation and understands the importance of engaging the customers they serve. F., I wish you all the best on your job search. I find the more companies I speak with, the closer to a 'what I want' role is easier to define.

    I am in somewhat of the same boat as you. I'm unemployed, and I know what I don't want to do. But as far as what I do want to do? That remains to be seen.

    Also, do you know who you want to work with? That's a big part of whether or not you will like your new gig.
