Good Day everyone,
After being unemployed for almost a year with so many failed attempts of landing an interview, I started getting tired. I was living in Chicago's suburb. Finding a good paying job will require a daily trip to Chicago Downtown which I wasn't willing to commit for.
I know myself really well, driving to the train station, then taking the Metra to Chicago Downtown while all the what ifs going through my mind about my kids, was out of question.
As my day was going by, just like all the other days I heard my phone's notification that I just received an email. I checked my inbox to my biggest surprise a company's HR was reaching out to me about a job position I couldn't recall when I applied for it.
To make the story short I ended up getting the opportunity to interview in-person with the hiring manager.
The one question I will never forget was: what do you know about Atlassian Tools? In my mind I was thinking, I hear all the time about the Atlas Mountains because I am from Morocco. My answer was: I never heard about it. The manager reassured me that it wasn't a requirement it was a nice to have.
He was being honest because I got an offer then joined his team. He got the door opened for me. Company trained me in Jira and I had to learn Confluence myself. This was back to 2014.
Since then I can not picture myself working somewhere without having to administer/support Atlassian Tools. This is how my Atlassian Journey started.
Tell us how you entered it too, and how has been your experience so far?
Have a great day everyone!
All the best,
