While I can't release details yet, I will be coming out of transition November 26th working as a Regional Director of Human Resources for a company in Indianapolis. I signed a contingent offer letter last week and am awaiting the criminal background check and reference checks to be completed and the contingency to be removed from the offer.
I want to thank each and every one of you for your calls and notes of encouragement, your prayers, and your friendship. I assume that everyone who offered to be a reference for me will follow through with a positive reference, and I know my own clean background, so this should be over for me soon. Vonnie and I will take a much-delayed 30th anniversary cruise in early November and then come back preparing for what comes next.
This job lead came from a friend whose career I had helped a few years ago. Almost every good lead I had came from someone I had helped at some point. This was instructive for me and I pass it along to you; if you want to prepare yourself for transition in the long term, and make friends along the way, help everyone you can. I don't think its unchristian to believe in good karma and intend to start this next phase of my career the way I ended it; showing everyone I know everything I know and helping everyone I can.
Again, thank you one and all for everything you did to support me during this transition.
