After months of painful job searching, Tom has achieved what most people would consider to be a pipe dream. The job of his dreams practically walked up and asked him to take it. As far as I can tell, there was no searching involved with this one, just what appears to have been a kind-hearted request and probably an emphatic “Yes!” Wouldn’t it be great if we could all be “chosen” by our dream jobs like that?
Commentary aside, Tom has joined RedMonk where he will be “an industry analyst covering Greentech, cleantech, Energy Demand Management and sustainability,” and it looks like he’ll be playing a big part in the future of GreenMonk.
When I first read this, I thought, “Wow, that’s the perfect job for anyone trying to live the difficult ‘popular Irish blogger and family man moving to Spain’ lifestyle!” I’m sure that he’s thinking the same thing. Congratulations, Tom!
Thanks James – it is absolutely a dream job. I’m really excited that I have found such a great opportunity in such an important area for the future. And I can do it from Spain! Superb.
You’re welcome, and congratulations again on finding your dream job! It sounds you’ll be able to work from home, in English, for both your family and for the eventual improvement of the environment! I couldn’t have imagined a better ending to your job search.
