The year has barely started and I’m out of one job and starting another already.
But did he jump or was he pushed?
Did he quit or resign?
A bit of both really. But when push cane to shove I got in first!
Well I was already on the look and had today’s fresh start lined up. A 6 month contract as a Solution Architect at a major financial institution in Edinburgh at a day rate that’s hard to refuse.
Yes I can be bought! 😀
Truth be told though, that last job was a nightmare.
I was bored rigid. Yet somehow squeezed between a rock and a hard place based at a demanding customer site with lack of support from the consultancy down south.
No moans, no slagging off, that’s below me and the job served a purpose of knowing what I don’t want to do but enjoying the easy commute of being back in Glasgow for 6 months.
My probation period is up this Friday coming. My manager made a point of coming up to see me last week.
I knew what was coming. So I got in first.
Now I’m on “garden leave” and they’re paying me for the month.
Shame they don’t know I already had this contract lined up.
Now I find myself heading east towards Edinburgh and looking back in time to the many occasions that I’ve worked there and did this commute before.
The train is much less stressful than the car. A breeze by comparison and gives one time to relax, a bit of browsing, reading or writing.
Looking forward to today, a little bit anxious like any new start, but I’ve did this many times before.
I’m tempted to say .. wish me luck .. but in this life you make your own.
Happy New Year!
