New Job! Barely any time to post!

Oh man. So I finally landed a full time gig in the Boston area. You are looking at the newest programmer for DoubleTap Games. Today was my third day and I love it. Looks likes I'll have the opportunity to work on some pretty cool things.

For the past nine months I have been trying to get a job in the Boston area. Me and the wife took a chance and decided to move here and tough it out. It wasn't too tough though. I was lucky enough to have steady income from doing off-site work for a couple companies I had connections with. After forty two applications one finally landed me a solid interview.

So if you are looking for a job somewhere you want to be for awhile, don't give up. It may take awhile, but persistence is key. If you don't put yourself out there then you are not allowing yourself to get lucky.

It has been quiet around the ol' blog lately due to work picking up and trying to find a job. Assume that it will be the same for a bit. There are a bunch of drafts I want to flesh out, but they will have to wait. I'll be back.


  1. Congrats on the new gig! Like you said, persistence is key, gotta get yourself out there before you can land anything, and that doesn't mean 1 or 2, or even 20-30 resumes. It means continuing to apply until you find something. And yes, it's been too quiet around the blog lately, I'm looking forward to more stuff!

  2. Awesome! Glad to hear you're enjoying the new job. Congratulations, man. I look forward to hearing more good things.

  3. Still quiet around the blog lately. :)

  4. Heyo, I've been in suspense! Would love to hear what's happening in Melcher-land.
