The State Of The Blog

I get enough people asking me about the fate of the blog where I thought it would make more sense to just crank out a blog post. I’m still here, but my time continues to be so limited that I’ve had to continue to put the blog on hold. A couple years back I started a great new job building out a world class cyber investigations team and that continues to take up the majority of my time. I’m planning a few blog posts about what I have learned as a hiring manager to help those who are looking to break into the field and how best to approach things like resumes, cover letters, and interviews.

What really killed my ability to stay on top of the blog was starting an MBA program last fall. It turns out a full-time job coupled with being a full-time MBA student doesn’t leave much free time. Pretty much anything that doesn’t involve my family, job, or school will be on hold until I graduate in the spring of 2015 or the University of Florida punts me out of their MBA program. I’ve managed to survive one term so far and I’m cramming for finals for my second term this week.Three more terms to go after that.

I’m hoping to carve out some time to crank out a couple blog posts now and again before graduation and then get back to my usually blogging schedule of a blog post every two to four weeks. I have a couple blog posts that I really want to get out this year including some interviews.
