One year ago today, the company I worked for went out of business. I think that’s a nicer way of saying we “collapsed” or “failed”. Over the nine years I spent there (over the course of 14 years), four different names hung above our door but it still just always felt like Providian.
I am proud of my accomplishments and even more proud of my team’s accomplishments. I worked for some great leaders that pushed me to succeed and taught me a great deal. I had the privilege of working with some very talented and hard working people and have many, many awesome memories.
More than 1,000 of my colleagues and friends lost their jobs in the months after the collapse. For those that are still looking for that next great gig, hold your head high; keep up the fight.
Stay positive. Keep looking. Never stop looking.
