My first day of unemployment.

By Steve Biddle, in , posted: 17-Nov-2009 09:18

Today is the first day in my life that I've woken up with no job.

It is a day of sadness and happiness. I've got fantastic memories of my time having had a significant management level input into a very successful business. A change of ownership has meant that my skills are not wanted by the new owners. Karma is a wonderful thing and my knowledge is their loss, not mine.

Today really is the start of a new future for me. I've got some ideas and I know plenty of people. I'm very much a believer in life being predetermined and am sure that what has happened will certainly lead to greater happiness in the future.

If anybody thinks that I might be right for a role they have then my contact details are on this page to the right. I'm always open to offers whether they be for casual/contract or full time work and would certainly be interested in any work in the VoIP, telephony or telecommunications sector.

In the meantime if you're from Wellington and ever want to catch up for coffee or lunch I've got plenty of time on my hands! You can contact me on here or @stevebiddle on twitter.
