iOS8 Location Based app suggestions.

Every time i’m in the office, I get the ‘Next’ app sitting in the bottom left of my lock screen. Pretty clever. On the topic of the Next app, hold tight on that one, i’m not an iOS developer at Next for no reason :)

Rumours are rumours

But the iPhone 6 is allegedly coming to us for release on September the 19th.
Furthermore it is rumoured to only be available 32gb and 64gb variants. Who knows, but the rumour as a iPhone 6 counterpart with a hefty 5.5inch display sounds pretty good!

Game Changer

It’s been all go this way for the last 3 weeks, a lot going on with so much to take in and not enough time to remember.

Of course, I’m talking about my new job.

I woke up on January the 1st this year and thought I need a change, I need to progress and become who I want to become, earn good money and drive faster cars.

Practicing what I preach I whipped out the CV, spent yet another chunk of time updating it and got it at the ready for mass distribution.

Being proactive I didn’t look at jobs being advertised, hell no, Instead I was eyeing up a company who I had an insider in telling me about how ‘boom’ the mobile side of life with them was going and thought thats brilliant, hit LinkedIN, grabbed a name of some one in HR and off we went.

2 Interviews later after applying for a position that didn’t exist I’m now sitting in an extremely cool office, 27inch iMac on my desk that I spec’d up to the max with my manager and were on the ladder in a massive organisation that collectively has over 3k employees. It’s an extremely cool company to work for, the opportunity is massive and were already hitting the ground running.

This is now the 2nd job I’ve got by engaging in a company that doesn’t have a job advertised for what I can do. I do get a lot of comments about my skill set, apparently finding someone with native iOS, Web API/ ASP MVC && SQL skills is rare. Who Knew but if you’ve ever sat there and thought ‘id love to work at XXXX but they are not advertising’ who cares? get off your backside and get your CV in there, even just for consideration. Your welcome.
