New Job

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith

Last Thursday my company did some layoffs and re-orginization. I survived the layoffs but my job has changed. I am no longer a Database Administrator for a major media company in Phoenix Arizona, but now I am a Database Analyst for a nation wide media company. I am still based in the Phoenix area and still use my same desk, computer and all that. I will still be doing Database Administration for the company in Phoenix as well, but my role is expanding. This company is a big MS Shop and I will be essentailly the only Administrator for all instances that this large enterprise has. I am very excited about this opportunity and look forward to the challenges ahead of me. I know that this will put my learning on the fast track and I am hoping to have my first test done in a month or two at the most. Well wish me luck and I am sure that I will have many new stories and experiances to share as I move forward on this new adventure.
