In mid-July I was notified that 31 August would be my last day at VNN. That was exhilerating, saddening, exciting, and difficult, all at the same time.
I knew right away of 2 places I wanted to work, so I fired off applications right away. One place didn’t respond, and the other responded almost immediately and negotiations began.
Things started off in a hurry at first, but then slowed down, as the place I was looking at was getting prepared for more employees. As the weeks went on and I was looking hard at September’s bills, I started looking around some more. A good friend suggested that I take a look at the WordPress VIP Partners list and apply to all that looked good.
Not long before I had released a plugin on wordpress.org, and someone pointed out some ways that I could make it better. When looking at the VIP list I noticed his company was on it, asked him if they were hiring, and he said they were!
He hooked me up with the right person and we began talking almost immediately. Long story short, the other day I signed a contract with X-Team for a four month trial period, after which I suspect I’ll be with them full time. I start Monday.
I’m very very excited, they seem really sharp and have tons to teach me, and they’re going to pay me on top of that!
I really live a blessed life, and I thank God for it every day.
