This new job is going well, Much better than I expected.
All is well, the people, the money, the challenge which is a step but from my previous roles but I’m embracing it and putting the effort in and overcoming.
All is week apart from the travel east every day to Edinburgh which is a pain in the derrière.
Time is money and it’s still worth it, not just for the cash but for the new skills which are more transferable going towards my next role.
That’s how it works.
You can’t go from junior doctor to principal consultant overnight. It’s taking the right steps to take you in the direction you want.
In my case it has been from apprentice engineer in shipbuilding, engineer, draughtsman, cad draughtsman, cad developer, database developer, DBA, database designer, solution designer, solution architect.
In most of those changes, I was at the same company.
For example an engineer in the yards to being a draughtsman was a different skill set is a significant jump.
Similarly at different company, I changed from cad developer to database developer.
Do you know what happens when that occurs?
