So I am in the midst of looking for a new job. I really liked the work that I did at my last company, but unfortunately the company decided to go in a different strategic direction and we mutually decided to part ways.

This has led me to determine what my next career step is. One of the first things is that I did not feel rejected and I did not feel less than capable. This happens all the time to a lot of people. It does not mean that I am not talented and it does not mean that I am less than capable of handling another role.

What it does mean is that I am forced to make several deliberate decisions about my career and my path moving forward. So I am keeping a blog of my progress to help highlight several do’s and don’t and misconceptions about the career hunt.

My very first thing I did was go home and rest. Because you can’t do anything while you are stressed out. So take a few days and let it process. During this time I was selective about who I told because many people will have a lot of opinions, but you first need to process it.
