Pulled (A) Trigger.
« on: November 02, 2007, 10:24:26 AM »

I was contacted by a recruiter/headhunter a while back.  After some deliberation(and help), I forwarded a resume.  I was never that serious, and after an initial HR interview, I withdrew myself from consideration.  Glad I did.  They were never gonna pay me what I get now, the commute would have been ludicrous, and the position was to manage an upstart imaging center.  No, thanks.
I know the guy who got the job, and he has been in contact with me several times since getting the position, asking for advise, etc.  From what he's telling me/ going through, my decision to abstain has been more than placated.  I am more than happy to help him any way I can.  He's a good guy, and I hope he does well with it.


The reason for the post:
With that experience, my juices have been stirred.  I have long considered veering from the field, and pursuing a career path different, but parallel.  A medical device, or technologies company.  I have always shied away because I feared it was to great a leap from my comfort zone, and those positions usually require a great deal of travel, which would disrupt the nuclear family life we enjoy.

Well, damn the institution.  I threw caution to the wind and sent a resume to one of them, that a couple of colleagues left the field for, and have been comfortably in their employ for some years now.

We'll see if they even contact me.  If they do, I'll have some soul searching to do, and definitely some decisions to mull.  I think somewhere inside, I must be ready, and or need to make this change, or I would not of made the initiation.  We'll see.

Good for you! Perhaps our resumes will pass each other in cyberspace  Shocked Lips Sealed   (I could've posted the same thing about a month ago)

And FWIW, there are positives to business travel. It totally disrupts the family routine but after 12 years I actually look forward to some trips. But I wouldn't want to travel any more than I do today.

Good luck.  Cheers

I've been forwarding my resume for a while now, but am in a very limited field with very specific experience, so not too much luck yet. Hopefully you'll do better.

 Thumbs Up

I'm a big fan of keeping feelers out there in the job market.  If not to actively find something else, at least to appreciate the job you currently have.

Then again, I've been at my current gig for way too long, but they're dangling a nice carrot at the 5 year mark (which should be at the end of this year)

Medtronics?  My brother works for them in Denver, thinking he might transfer to MN at some point; he has said they are a very cool company to work with.

Well fella's,  I took the leap from the comfort zone about a month ago.  Monday I start a new job in Des Moines, Iowa.  After two weeks, I on the road and home weekends, If I choose to be.  Totally new experience for me, totally new field of work.   Scratches Head

I don't play golf anymore.   Well, maybe I do sort of.  I quit keeping score, started drinkning beer and I started playing better.
