Cebu Tech Blogger isn’t dead yet; and it would never be dead! Just that I was hooked up in a situation in which I can hardly publish updates on this blog. Hiring writers isn’t a priority right now ‘coz I want to keep CTB as close to being a personal tech blog.
For some of you who already knew, I quit my full time job at Teradyne Philippines last March for a reason. Working at Teradyne for 5 years was an awesome experience and I truly valued the company’s contribution to what I have learned in the tech industry. Teradyne was my 2nd job actually; my first job was at Lexmark for 1.5 years and that leaves me a combined experience of more than 6 years now in the ICT industry. So, why exactly I’m telling you this? Well, simply because these companies have something to do with the existence of this blog. But interestingly, I shifted my career into something I loved doing most, a career that requires knowledge and skills I’ve only acquired out from being curious about it. I’m talking about “the internet” and every “online opportunity” that I’ve never ever seen before year 2008.
Building a Company
Right after I quit my job, it’s no secret that I got married. But getting married was not the only thing I’ve been prepping before I handed over my resignation letter to my boss. Along the way, I co-founded an Inbound Marketing company that we officially launched last May 7th. The company is called TekWorx Mobile and Web Services, and obviously it’s very young but we’re very much optimistic on its growth. While we seek the help of Cebu Business Incubator for IT (CeBuinIT), we continue working for several projects and clients already. And yeah, that’s pretty exciting yet challenging but that doesn’t mean anything about leaving CTB after all. (more…)
