Last Friday…

… some of you might recall that I didn’t have a really good night at work. Unfortunately, this morning, it came to head with the result of my no longer holding employment there, anymore. Yeah, I got fired for gross incompetence and the only thing I can say about it is that I had to agree with the call. When the company loses over a hundred thousand dollars on your watch, there’s very little for you to do but stand up and take responsibility for your actions or inactions. It’s just that simple. If I had been given the opportunity, I think I would have resigned my position even if he had written me up. Because, folks, this goes deeper than simply firing me. My boss’ job is still on the line, as of this writing, and that’s how bad it got. The decision was made before I walked into that meeting and were I on the other side of the table, I would have come to the same conclusion they had. With that much revenue lost, someone has to toe the line.

Anyway, so in spite of this hanging around my neck, I’m job hunting again. And I’m not just looking for another NOC job; I’d really like to do something different. I just hope it pays as well as this industry does…

    I’m sad to hear this as well. I do hope you find something just as good but more along of something you like and is different. Best of luck and I know job hunting sucks but there is something good out there for you.

    Send me your resume so I can submit it for you at Apple INC in Cupertino. I always see jobs and they have been doing well so far. If anything check out and tell me if you see anything you want to submit to, any resumes that get sent in by a employee gets first dibs by HR.

    good luck!

    That bites, dude. You guys will pull through, though – I’ve always admired how fast you manage to get back on your feet!
