Friday was my last day as a contract sysadmin at TeleTracking. It was a wonderful job with a great group of people. I enjoyed working in a small office and helping out with their occasional IT needs. Still, I have skills that I never got a chance to apply there because others were responsible for those areas. I was hired primarily to do the Linux system administration along with occasional Windows administration. I began to wish for more responsibility.
Near the end of last year, I was contacted by a company that I spoke with before my TeleTracking job. I turned them down back then due to the travel involved with that particular position, not to mention I didn’t have a clear understanding of the product. This time around there’s a position which doesn’t involve much travel. What’s more, I have a much better appreciation for the product’s value.
I start next Monday, working full-time again. Juggling my schedule (and Kelly’s) might be a challenge at first but it will be worth it. I’m looking forward to the challenge and am excited about my new opportunity!
