I Start Work on Monday
After I received the job offer I wrote about in my last post, I received two more offers. It is funny, not necessarily “ha ha”, how the damn burst once I got that first offer. The other two offers came from companies that found me, rather than ones I found and to whom I applied. One of them is a large government contractor with a respectable history in aerospace and defense. I got a couple more contacts from high profile software companies after I received that first offer.
I won’t complain about the lateness of the offers and peak in interest. That is just the way of things. I am just grateful that my patience, optimism, and perseverance were ultimately rewarded especially considering the general state of the market.
I considered the offers for a few days and accepted one. I start work at that new job on Monday. I am understandably relieved though the new payroll is monthly and the start date ideally should have been a week ago to mesh seamlessly with our budget. We have enough in savings to bridge the gap but it reinforces that this will simply be a lean holiday season.
The new company makes educational software, is several years old, and has a large customer base. They are well recognized in their space but still small and growing. My role there will be a technical one with team management responsibilities. The environment is very similar to my favorite jobs over the past ten years. The role is also consistent with my professional development to date.
