I’m looking for a job, got a spare? Email me. Want to help? RT this or recommend me to a company you know that is looking.
For the second time since I have been blogging (and for the 3rd time in my career) I find myself looking for “What’s next”. I received a call from my employer this morning that basically said “we are going in a different direction”.[Nice comments about the company redacted to comply with my exit agreement.]
So I have been sitting here thinking about who I am, what I do, and what I want to do when I grow up. (It should be noted that as I sit here and write this, I am staring 50 years old in the face. If I am ever going to grow up, it needs to be soon.)
Things have changed a little since I wrote this same post in 2009. The main thing that has changed is that I have discovered that I love teaching and helping developers grow. When I look back at the last 10 years of my career, it’s not really a revelation, but I hadn’t really noticed it until a year or so ago.
Second, my life goals have changed. I have records of what my short-mid-long term goals were a few years back. As I look at them now, I begin to realize that they aren’t as important as I thought they were. Most of my goals in the past have been about things. I realized this summer that my major life goal; my BHAG; is to do something that makes a difference. I don’t have to change the world, but I’d like to leave it a better place than I found it.
The Call to Action
So with all of that in mind, I announce to you that I am looking for my next great adventure and ask for your help in finding it.
Does your company need any of those either full time or contract? If so, reach out to me via email cal at calevans dot com. If you need my resume, Click “Resume of Cal Evans”.
Until next time,
