Today was my last day with Surgical Information Systems. I learned a lot from the smart & caring people there, and had the best manager; good role-model, too. The Vice President was cool because he’d answer all my questions. Since he was smart and part teacher, he’d give me good analogies, too.
I start my new job Monday with Bellsouth.net/Bellsouth Online; not sure the exact name yet that I should be technically calling it. I’ll be working in their
Research & Development with a few other technical departments using copious amounts of Flash & Flashcom. I’m not looking forward to the drive, but everything else is really exciting! I still can’t shake the sadness in my heart about leaving SIS, though. A lot of good people and good relationships were formed there. It’s for the better, though.
This is the 3rd job I’ve gotten via Monster.com. When I quit Digital ArtifeX back in May of 2002, I was at square one. I didn’t have any work I could show as they locked me out of the building that day and gave me pieces of crap example work I had done… 4 months too late. After researching all the ways to get a job (plethora of this kind of stuff on the web, specially then since the economoy blew worse than it did now), majority said to not depend on online job sites. It’s ok to use them, but utilize other resources, too. There was a lot of other good information, but I listed myself everywhere anyway. First, a recruiter (well, 3 actually) found me there for IBM since I applied online. Then, I found SIS there. The most recent recruiter representing Bellsouth found me 2 weeks after I updated my resume. In my opinion, Monster.com works.
