It had been a while since I wrote and I want to update again everything I have done since the 25K :P
Since my arrival I had the time to start checking job advertisement web sites looking for my first job in Australia... To be honest I was a little afraid of the upcoming changes, meanly because in Venezuela I stand out from the crowd because of my knowledge in computer science and having a look to the Australian market quite left me with a shaky base of my background. Almost every single job was requiring the latest technology which I am into, but made me the illusion of being in a place were almost every single professional is as prepared and trained as I am. And so, with little insecurities scratching my back I started looking for a job... Something challenging yet different from what I was used to. I will post in several other posts how my experience was hunting for the place I wanted to fit in.
But days went by and October, then November passed by and nothing came up, nothing totally definitive and I bumped with Kyle and Ann. Among other recruiters, they were pretty kind and focused their business to totally give me an opportunity in the Australian market. And as the first days of December started I was thinking ‘oh god, are you letting me out of light? Am I going to have a stressing Christmas and a crappy channuka’ and then, I got a called from Ann two days before Channuka, she gave me the excellent news that I was selected to work with Cochlear... I am not a very religious man, in fact I believe pretty much that each of us is a tiny part of god, waiting for the perfect moment to awake and make the change to come... but as these days went by I just want to express my gratitude to the universe or god, for not letting me down.
Thank you god, you gave me light just before my oil was about to be depleted.
Happy channuka guys (I will give you merry Christmas in about some more days :P)
Chag urim sameach!
