A little under a month ago I began a new job with a company called ORBIMAGE. It’s a satellite imaging company with contracts with the government and private corporations. Any google search will tell you more about the products and services it offers.
Specifically, I work on the SeaStar team as an Applications Analyst. I do a lot of different things, but I’m happy to be doing a lot of programming. It’s a great job for someone still trying to survive through a Master’s program.
I started work full-time, while I was finishing up a semester of school, also full-time. It’s been very demanding, especially as we’ve been in the weeks preceding a product release and I’ve had final exams in three classes. Thankfully, two were pretty easy, and the third is next Monday.
From now on, I’ll be working full-time and going to school at night once or twice a week.
