Career Change?

Start here



My last foray into the land of unemployment got me to thinking:  “Is this really what I want to do?”  So I decided that maybe it was time to return to the world of teaching and instructional development.  Those of you that know me know that I’m a total attention whore – I absolutely love speaking in front of a riveted audience.  Sadly, it’s been over 20 years since I “officially” worked in the instructional design field.  Oh I have been teaching, speaking at conferences, and stuff like that but my resume is full of all my testing experience.  Needless to say, I didn’t get a lot of attention – which kills me.  I am afterall – me!

But, I also updated my testing resume on the major job sites.  Then my phone started ringing.  I couldn’t believe the interest.  So hear I am – back in software testing – and I absolutely love it.  Its nice to be back. 

I tend to avoid thinking about testing during employment lulls, and this blog suffers.  But now that I’m back, maybe I can keep up.  Look for me at a conference near you.  I feel the need to go to Vegas.  Or maybe Boston (in the fall please).

P.S.  Does anyone really read this thing?

  2. Welcome back Cap’N Dave. I work as a software tester and read your blog. I still haven’t made it to a conference. Hope to get the money saved up sometime soon.
