Someone on Fosstodon got in touch with me eventually, and we've closed a deal today. I'm starting next month and absolutely stoked to grow into my role and become even better for the next time around! 🎉
I had absolutely no idea what would happen or any expectation with this toot. Almost out of desperation, this was me shouting into the fediverse -- yet 76 boosts and dozens of replies and DMs later, here I am, incredibly taken aback by the response and the help extended. Thank you EVERY ONE! ♥
There's a whole lot of inner work and long-term thinking to do around my career, life goals, and where I want to be in 2 years, 3, or even 5. But, for now, I'm thankful that I get to pay my bills and do more of what I enjoy.
@celia That's awesome, congratulations!
@Mundon Thank you! 😄
@celia Congrats! Is it remote or are you moving too?
@viv Thank you, Vivek! 😄
This is fully remote which was a baseline criteria for me.
I had rejected a bunch of companies already which wanted me to either move, or come into their offices. The pandemic is still very much here to stay.
@celia That's awesome! Good luck with your new role!
@viv Thank you! ♥
