The career advancement continues

Tuesday (12/31) I had an interview that I really would like to go somewhere. Out of respect for them and my current employer I won’t say anything until I hear positive or negative. This coming Wednesday (1/7) I will have another interview, however it is only for a 3rd job, not a replacement.

I really enjoy my time at Ecodigital, but I don’t know if they will keep me after my degree is done. My superior is aware that I am looking around, and that I’m not planning on leaving unless something spectacular comes along. I enjoy everyone I’m working with and the challenge of all the different facets of IT that I get to tackle every day. One minute I’m installing a new virtual server, the next figuring out a routing problem, the next working on one of the Xerox machines. It’s always interesting.

Em is still insistent on going to Texas. I don’t see the draw, but if there is nothing around here I’ll consider moving seriously. Gotta do what you gotta do. Leaving family and the town I’ve lived in for 30 years isn’t very enticing, however southern Illinois’ economy is even worse than the rest of the country. Sometimes you just have to suck it up and do the things that you don’t neccessarily want to do.

At the very least, I am getting some experience in interviewing again, and making some contacts. Plus, I get to learn more of what several different employers are looking for in new/replacement employees within our field. Thanks for reading, and feel free to offer leads if you have any.
