99 (not out)

99 months and counting.

And, coming Monday, it will be a century.

I am talking about my on-going tenure in AdventNet, since 01 June 2000, along with a few of people who are still here : Deepa.K, Jagan.R and Karthik.S.R. (Wishes to you, friends !!)

Probably too much of a time for a person, who in his HR interview had answered, that he might probably work for around 2 years and then start his own company. (Question was from “Viji” Vijayaraghavan, now in Zorro team. It was something like “How long do you think you will work here ?” or “Where do you see yourself in 2 to 3 years ?”, not sure.)

That was probably a very naive guess of a target date.

Or, may be, I was born with the talent of predicting target dates, you know – like they would normally do in the software industry. You could see that spark even before I joined the industry ;-).

But target dates just cannot keep slipping. They will have to happen one day.

I will.

    Good luck with your venture Raj. Have you decided on what you are venturing into?

  9. rrajkumar says:

    Thanks SRK. You too ?! I know another guy too who had said the same and is here with us for more than 7 years !!

    May be, we are those kind-of people who are not lured by short-term job-hop gains, but see the advantage of a career in AdventNet as a place to learn and build ourselves each day, until a point where one is confident enough to venture out.

    Thanks Suresh.
    Regarding your question : More posts to follow in that front. Simple answer : Not yet finalized.
