Oh I see, I guess ur kinda like me then :P
Sure its more than fair for me to start :)
Well I mean we haven't been in regular conversation for god knows how long, so I'll just give u kind of a summary of the last few yrs, and feel free to ask about whatever u like ^_^
So yeah once I graduated college and then grad school after that, I was home for a few months before I eventually find a job working for the State public health dept in Connecticut. That much at least I figure ur up to speed but doesn't hurt to start there. So yeah, that was never really a dream job for me, it was more of a timing thing and just trying to get myself out there in the workforce rather than being too picky upfront. So I mean it was good experience in that sense, but I was never a public sector guy. I mean the stuff we were doing wasn't really true engineering work, mostly like construction admin we call it, which basically means a few site visits and a mess of paperwork and regulations haha.
So almost immediately I was looking for other opportunities, and as luck would hav it I did find something in less than 6 months which is great. So I was able to find my 1st true engineering job in private consulting w/ a small-medium size firm out of their Texas office. It was definitely a huge improvement in general lifestyle being in a big city like Dallas, so I was generally a lot happier. But it wasn't the best company, and our office in Dallas was really small so there wasn't a ton of opportunities, so things went well the 1st few months, but after that I realized it wasn't something I was willing to commit to long-term either. But I was there about a yr and all and at least this time I was getting some real experience. But due to certain circumstances which I won't go into atm, I ended up resigning f/ my position. Fortunately, I had already been having plenty of interviews in the months leading up to that, and I was able to find a new job back in my home state of New Jersey within a month. Suffice it to say, it was the right call haha.
So yeah that's where we're at now, I'm working w/ a much larger consulting company out of their main office, I've been here since May and really its such a stark contrast in the level of opportunity I hav here. I'm learning so much more, and I don't feel like I'm held back since we hav all the resources at our disposal. I mean overall this place is just a ton more organized and professional which is exactly what I wanted all along. Its not perfect, but lets face it not job it. The point is I'm doing good honest work, I hav a fairly reasonable work-life balance, and I'm getting paid fairly and well on my way to progressing my career. I should be in line for my professional engineering exam by the end of next yr to get my license.
So yeah those r the major life events at least :)
No girlfriends or anything like that to speak of I'm afraid haha
But I'm taking it one step at a time
How about u? ^_^
Yes ur right, for me too :(
