I'm Always Optimistic in the Morning

D had an appointment with a head-hunter this morning. He says it went well and that there are options. He has another contact who tells him a company very close by wants to at least talk to him. His old boss, who he'd love to go back to, is out of town this week but he should get D's email soon.

I keep hoping that this will lead us to a job that D loves. I really, really want him to be happy at work again.

What does he do? I know it's something computer-y, but that's all I can remember.

He's a firmware engineer, which means he writes code that operates very closely with computer hardware. Th vast majority of jobs for him are here in south OC, San Jose, Portland and Seattle. Although Colorado is looking like a possibility too. Who bloody knows?

I'm looking to go to San Jose state for grad school. Please tell Dan to begin looking for jobs in that area, and I will see you in the Fall.

Good luck, Dan! It might help to get on linkedin and use it to network. If there is a job opening then check linkedin to see if you know someone who works there to help get your foot in the door. Link to everyone you can--even non-firmware engineers, LOL!

Best of luck Colleen. I know it has been a tough ride. Hopefully the destination will be totally worth it. There is so much to be said for happiness doing what you do. It is not overrated.
