Last year, I asked Scott Berkun why, some years ago, he left his long-standing job at Microsoft. He pointed me to his blog post about it… http://scottberkun.com/essays/41-why-i-left-microsoft/ (Worth a read when you’ve got the time).
Although my current employer is definitely not Microsoft, I can still see some similarities in Scott’s story to my own circumstances. I’ve been employed by the same company for 10 years now, and I’m good at my job - but it’s time for me to move on, time for a change.
With that said, I’ve dusted off my CV, re-joined LinkedIn, and I am looking for a new job and new career outside of the geo-data/map industry.
I’m intent on bringing my dedicated, organised, and helpful work ethic to a team who put their customers first at every step. Suitable Employers would have an online business model (digital core) and understand the benefits of embracing design, and effective branding in all their work. Being a key part of a successful, like-minded group are factors I enjoy in the workplace.
