I Have a New Employer
When I was young…er a friend of mine barged into a role playing session (Yes I was a nerd. Am.) with the following question: “Do you notice anything different about me?” He had his newly acquired driver’s license taped to his forehead…
I would do something similar now to mark an equally great change in my life, but I haven’t figured out how to make my newly acquired employment stick to my forehead. So, here it is instead, in plain text:
I have gotten myself into consulting.
My new employer is Know IT, a fast growing Swedish IT company mainly targeting the Scandinavian IT sector.
I’m quite happy with the change. Although I enjoyed the seven years with my previous employer very much, I hope the new position will bring me diversity and professional growth.
If you’re thinking about changing your own work situation, but haven’t found the guts to do so, then I can recommend reading the inspiring post by Justin Etheredge. He, obviously a couple years ahead of me, quit consulting and started his own company. I can totally relate to that. But one step at a time, right?
