How's your new career going? Did you find something in your field? I hear SpaceX is hiring.....
Well, more of "in the field". I'm the caretaker for a private horse ranch, orchard and farm in rural Reno, NV. I didn't expect it to take months to hear back from recruiters for engineering and made the move out here a couple months after layoff from KSC. THEN the recruiters (mostly aircraft related) started calling.
I'm set here for at least another year - it's challenging in many new ways.
Space X rocks! But they've been hiring cream-of-the-crop designer engineers and working them 70 hrs a week. Would love to get an opportunity to interview with them but I know few who make it past application (mine included).
Thanks for asking - it was a tough reality check.
