Ch-ch-ch-ch-change….

There’s been a bit of change in Derek’s world these last few weeks.
At the end of the day on January 25th, I’ll drive home from Vassar for the last time. Starting on the 28th, I begin work at a company down in Manhattan, answers.com, with the title of Data Center Manager.
This has probably been one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make. I don’t feel it’s exaggerating to say that I enjoy my job, co-workers, the environment, and pretty much every aspect of Vassar more than I have any other position I’ve had in my entire career. But, that said, there’s a number of reasons why working for Answers is “the right thing to do”. I’m extremely confident in the decision (which, it’s no secret, D and I deliberated on in various forms for several weeks), and looking forward to the challenges to come.
Of course, it’s just my dumb luck that — two days after my projected start-date — is the day that Amtrak is planning as their strike date. My planned commuter route? Yeah, Amtrak. Go figure.

  1. Is that your old job posted on the Vassar site? I’m curious if you’d care to discuss your career change with an existing Manhattan commuter from the Poughkeepsie area.

  2. I don’t see contact info on your site here, can you drop me a line cjmurphy@ your old company that started with Y.com
