Somehow I made it through the gauntlet of interviews and Microsoft decided to hire me. Yea, I don’t believe it either. Even after a month, it still feels a little unreal each morning when I swipe my badge – I keep waiting for the light to turn red and for someone to come out and say this has all been a big mistake and that they’ll have to take my badge….But so far it hasn’t happened.
I recently joined a new company and it’s been interesting watching people’s reactions when they learn where I now work.
Previously I’ve served in the Navy, worked for a children’s toy retailer, for an IT outsourcer and for a large company that made cell phones and software among other things. Now I work for Microsoft. (And to be clear this entire blog is my own personal effort and is not endorsed in any way or edited by Microsoft.)
I recently helped solve an intermittent network/server problem for a client. This problem had been confounding the IT staff of this firm for quite a while and although this wasn’t why I was on site it was impacting my ability to complete my specific consulting work. So I stepped in and started troubleshooting the problem in hopes of getting it fixed so I could get back to work.
