Holly Springs, NC
Former eng manager at LinkedIn, looking for the next challenge
Job offer docusigned. I rejoin the land of the employed Apr 19, after around 13 1/2 months of sabbatical.
I'm at the final two interviews for a job that I want. Should know more by next week. Even if I don't get an offer, it will still be one of the best interview experiences I've had, by a wide margin. Feels good to be treated like a person.
I had a fair bit of AWS experience under my belt, some from personal projects but mostly from Jaunt VR days, so I took and passed the AWS Certified Solutions Architect-Associate exam this week.
Interviewing. Talked to 2 companies adopting "hybrid" work policies, where employees come to the office 2-3 days a week and work 2-3 days at home. An effective way to shrink that national "work-from-anywhere" talent pool you were just pulling from to just those cities you have an office in.
Operation: Weightloss is going well. I'm down 15 pounds from my max, eating under my target every day, and haven't had any alcohol in 20 days. Losing ~1.5 pounds a week.
For the first time since COVID started, I went out tonight to a bar. With a friend. Without masks. Without this giant weight of worry on top of me. It was really, really good.
