Yeah!! That's right! I got the job with my "dream" company! I finally scored it, it's been a long time coming guys!
If there was one thing that made me want to leave my last employer it was because as much faith as I had in the people that I worked with, financially the company is going south...quick, fast & in a hurry. I really did love my last job, I loved traveling, I loved the people. I didn't love the reduction in pay, the fact that promises were made all the time, but then there were excuses as to why those promises couldn't be fulfilled. (Yes I know that happens at EVERY employer, but on a daily basis it shouldn't) I also knew that part of what I was participating in wasn't totally ethical & that was wearing away at me.
So now here it is 2010 a new year, a new me, a new job, new people, new motivation, new travel! Because this is a much larger company than the company I previously worked for, I think it will be hard for me to gain global recognition like I had at my last job. Across the globe everyone knew me, knew my work & had 100% faith in my abilities. I traveled to many of our offices and worked with a lot of cross functional/global teams, so my name was out there. I know that won't be the case with this new organization, BUT I feel that I will make a great contribution and name for myself in my assigned industry within the firm!
I'm excited!! I find out this week about my potential first assignment - how freakin awesome! :)
