Job Hunt 2012

19 Apr

I've been on a quest to find a job in California, namely the Bay Area for a couple of months now simply for the benefit of something new and I really want to live in the Bay Area. Another major motivator is to allow my wife to stay home with my son for the next couple of years until he starts up school. I've been blessed with the opportunity and ability to be a stay at home dad now for 5 years all whilst starting and running a successful business.


I'm a technology junkie, and the opportunities are almost limitless, unless you're me apparently.


I've been running my own company for several years, and don't plan on shutting my doors unless a position required a non-compete that encompassed my development company. I don't quite understand why it's been so hard for me to find a job other than the current economy however I've proven time and time again that I can do well in the target industry for which my company offers services.


You might be wondering, well if your business is successful why would you need to find a job, the answer is simple, Guaranteed Paychecks. When running a business which relies on others to fund development of projects, there are no guarantees of steady income. I've never spent a dime on advertising, and most of my current clientele are repeat clients who are satisfied with the quality of service, work, and me. I'm not going to lie, we've struggled who hasn't in this economy lately, and I just want more security to be blunt.


With the above being said I will march on with my quest to find a full time job with a great company, there's one out there who can benefit from my skills that I've acquired running my own business which include duties such as project management, sales, customer service, marketing, Search Engine Optimization, social media marketing, business development, and many others that are required when you run a website and mobile development company.


I look forward to change and I won't stop till I achieve what I've set my mind too.
