As many of you have heard, I have decided to leave VMware to pursue another one of my career goals. Read on to learn more!
As part of human nature we tend to find something that we like and stick to it. We are often creatures of habit. While this can be a good thing, it can also be a bad thing. Too often I find people are afraid to make a change. With change comes uncertainty, with uncertainty comes fear, with fear comes…well, that is up to you. I bring this up as I have made the decision to move from Operations to Engineering at VMware. About four months ago, I was approached with an opportunity for change and after much consideration I decided to step outside of my comfort zone and try something new.
In terms of career changes there are several important things I always keep in mind:
The last couple of weeks have been extremely busy for me and thus my lack of posts. Part of what has been keeping me busy is a transition from one company to another. I am happy to officially announce that as I am today I am a VMware employee! So what am I doing now? Well, I am actually doing exactly what I have been doing for the last year, but instead of working for Mozy, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of EMC, I work for VMware, which is majority owned by EMC. Based on my strong passion for VMware technologies, this is a welcome change and I feel a great opportunity to grow professionally. I look forward to the challenges and learning experiences ahead as well as the ability to contribute and assist in any capacity.
