John Verbosky - Good-bye Fellow Ninjas!

Hi everyone!

Well it's been an exciting ride, but it is with an extremely heavy heart that I have to announce my departure from KACE due to a workforce reduction by the new owners.  Although my focus for the past several years had been on internal technical training materials, my team was aggressively developing materials that were intended for our customers (you) when the company moved out of Dell and my job was eliminated.  I'm hopeful that my first implementation web-based training course will reach you eventually, although I won't be the one to finish it at this point.

Since all of my fellow ninjas have been so supportive of me and my work over the years, I'm sincerely hoping that you might be able to help me in my current situation - that is, assisting me in my search for a new technical position, where I can continue to help others by doing what I love.  So, if any of my blogs, KACE webinars or Dell Software User Forum training sessions have helped you (and if you wouldn't mind), I would sincerely appreciate it if you would reach out to me on LinkedIn and help me with a recommendation:

Thank you again for all of your support over the years, and I'll be sure to let you know where and when I land.

Have a good one!  ^_^ /

John C. Verbosky

  • You should look into pluralsight, maybe you can make some kace courses for plural sight or any technical courses. Get paid for what you know.. - jgarcia29 7 years ago

    • Thank you for your support, fishmachine! ^_^ / - jverbosk 7 years ago
  • John, I always remember the KACE customer presentation you gave in San Francisco and how you created some incredible efficiencies for RESCO Products. That same ingenuity will serve you next employer well. Thanks for all your useful insight and contributions on the web. - fauveld 7 years ago
    • Thanks, fauveld! I'm really hoping that I can find another group that will let me continue to grow. Honestly, working at KACE was my dream job, as I had the opportunity to grow is so many different ways. - jverbosk 7 years ago
  • You're the man, John! Best of luck in all your future pursuits. - JasonEgg 7 years ago

  • Well, I said I'd give you all an update once I had one, so here it is:

    This morning I was notified that I've been accepted into a full stack web development re-training program that has a direct path to employment with the company that is providing the training. After a serious review of the job market following my layoff, I've been pursuing this path on my own via the freeCodeCamp and codecademy websites. But now it looks it's actually going to work out, instead of just being a dream.

    So, I want to say "Thank you!" to each and every one of you ninjas who have encouraged and supported me in my time on AppDeploy/ITNinja. While I will be moving on to a new path, I will never forget the sheer joy that I found in working with the K1000 and K2000, or the doors that opened up for me as a result of digging deeper.

    I wish you all the best of luck and, as usual, hope you have a good one! ^_^ /

    • Congratulations John! :) - svmay 6 years ago
  • It's been a while, but just wanted to let everyone know that I'm now an application developer at 84 Lumber.

    I still get to play with SQL (and many, many other things) and couldn't be happier.

    Hope everyone else is doing well and thanks again for all of your support over the years!
