If you want to read the first part of my job history, click here. I’ll summarize briefly before moving onto part two:
From 1996 to 2005, things were pretty good. Everything moved forward as I was an IT professional, getting my feet wet on a help desk, moving toward day to day support and implementation working for a small company, and moving to the health care arena in 2002, where I made process improvements at several regional hospitals.
In short, things were awesome. But, seven years ago today, my world got rocked.
On March 1, 2005, for the first time in my life, I got fired.
Canned. Let go. Axed.
I’ll move into a little more detail about the job where it occurred.
