Big News: So Long Columbus!

Earlier this week, I gave notice to my current firm. I’ve been offered, and accepted ,a Litigation Support Analyst position with a much larger firm. (I’m not exactly sure about their policies regarding naming the firm in a blog post, so I’ll leave that out for now….)

Anyway, the new gig is in their Greenville, SC office, so at the end of March I will be packing up the car with as much of my stuff as I can, and heading to South Carolina. My wife will be staying behind, for a few months at least, to take care of things she wants to do before starting her own job search and joining me. (Not to mention being the lucky one who gets to pack up our house!)

So, as much as I would love to invite you all to come visit, I’ll be living is small, temporary, housing. I won’t have room for guests! However, if you happen to be in the area, please let me know! Seriously, I’m moving to a city I don’t know anyone in, without my wife, if you’re going to be close, say hello. Heck, if you see me on Facebook chat, Twitter, or just want to email, please say hello! Those of you who have my cell phone number can text or call too. I may not be in Ohio any more, but it’s 2011, we have the technology to keep in touch, and I fully expect to make use of it!

Also, if you know anything about the Greenville area, or have some contacts, get in touch! I can definitely use the help. 😉

So, that’s the big news. I’ll start the new job on April 4. Planning past that, in terms of things like being at ILTA11, when I might be back in Columbus to visit, or when we’ll be living in permanent housing and have room for folks to stay with us, are pretty much filed in the “to be determined” drawer. I just don’t know, but I will keep you posted.

It should be an interesting ride, I look forward to sharing it here on the blog!

    WOW! That’s great news! Congratulations! Everyone says nice things about Greenville. That’s about 6 hours from us, so I presume we’ll be meeting up with yall in Savannah from time to time. And now I have somewhere to stumble home to after Clemson games! 🙂
