I'm now employed by The Burton Group
Last week I posted the blog titled 9 of Clubs Seeks a new Deck of Cards which basically talked about me not being able to find work very easily and kicking off a job hunt.
Well the good news is that I have accepted a job as a Sr. Analyst at The Burton Group I start May 24th.
Although I found the job the old fashioned way, through networking, I wanted to thank everyone that responded to my original blog entry and offered support, advice, leads, and occasionally a Job. Thank you. I'm very grateful.
When I made that post I fully expected to get flamed, but I figured it was worth showing a little vulnerability so that people understand that (in at least my case) working on the JCP EC and the JSR Expert Groups and Open Source comes at a cost even if there are very real benefits.
I'm really looking forward to working with The Burton Group. They are a top notch and very respected organization that has a more technical focus than Forrester and Gartner anyway its right up my alley.
Thanks again to all those who responded it was a very positive experience and I'm grateful.
