Stuck in Fresno away from the lucrative and challenging IT positions I have been accustomed to, I wanted to return to the Bay Area or another more metropolitan area. But my parents were aging and needed my help. My brother had passed away and my sister was in the Los Angeles area, and my daughter was studying Cognitive Science at UCSC. So Eileen and I felt bound to stay in Fresno.
Then a recruiter called. Recruiters typically call. However, this recruiter asked if it would be a problem for me to live and work in Fresno. It was not only Ok, but it was ideal.
