At the Electric Company

Today was my first day at Atco Electric, where I now serve as a Communications Advisor. I'm very excited; the work looks challenging and creative, and the people are wonderful. I'm eager to contribute to a company that plays such a huge role in Alberta's economy, especially one that clearly cares about its employees and giving back to the community.

A number of people made it possible for me to reach this new career milestone, while others helped me earn a living during my transition. Still others provided crucial moral support or sent me job opportunities. So in no particular order, I'd like to thank Brian, Neil, Leslie, Andrew, Rick, Amanda, Kim, Tanara, John, Steve, Jeff, other Jeff, Mom and Dad, Sean, Dr. David Swann, Kent Hehr, Tracy, Karen, Colin, Pete, Kyle, Mike, Scott, Nik, Michael, Susie, Jackie, daveberta, the many fine people who endorsed me on LinkedIn, and of course Sylvia, who supported me through twelve months of job-seeking and the precarious tides of self-employment.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your support and assistance. You helped me begin this new chapter.

Shocking news (Ohm G!)!! From the lecture circuit to the main conductor on the power bus, Earl volts up to new high ground. Watts next for our favourite scribe? As long as he stays positive, this new job will be his magnetic field of dreams.

Alas, for those of us negative anodes who have currently burnt all of our Wheatstone bridges, we can only charge that in the megacycle of things it's not who you know but whose circuits you blow.
