Not much posted the past month as I've been on tenterhooks (who says "tenterhooks"?!?) waiting to hear about a new job I interviewed for back in early July. It took 6 or 7 weeks for them to get it sorted out and I start the new job on 4 September.
Should be a good change, better pay, more in line with my experience and desires in a job than my current position. Hopefully the change will be smooth and ruckus-free (who says "ruckus"??!)
One of my biggest concerns about coming back to Canada was that I had basically abandoned my IT career when I moved to Korea. three and a half years away can be the death of a career
My stint in Singapore was a good introduction back into the field, although the outgoing experience with one of my employers there was a petty fiasco that I'd care never to experience again. All the more shocking, or perhaps it should be less so, because one of the partners was someone I knew for a very long time and assured me that all would be made right. Not so nice, but at least it's over and I don't care to ever have to deal with that sort of situation again.
I'd had a few leads prior to coming back to Canada, but nothing came of them, except my current job, which although not what I was really looking for, proved to be enough to hang my hat on for a while.
Now I'm back to working for some of the same people I worked for before I left Canada and back working in an academic environment. Hopefully, I can get back to doing some university courses again.
Here's to future days!
