I love my job
Just thought I’d reassure everyone that I still love my job at Yahoo!. Why am I saying this? Because it seems like everytime I turn around, someone is asking if I regret choosing Yahoo! over Google. Yes, the Yahoo! stock has taken a beating lately and Google successfully bought YouTube, but does that make working at Yahoo! any less exciting? No way.
I love my job at Yahoo!, love the people I work with, love the company. Is it perfect? Of course not, no job ever is. But I’ve never thought I made the wrong choice. And would I recommend Yahoo! to others? Of course I would. There’s so much cool stuff going on, I constantly feel lucky to be surrounded by such smart, talented people. I feel like I’ve learned so much in the short time I’ve been here. I have no doubt that this is exactly where I’m supposed to be right now. Yodelling.
