It’s hard to write about my day job, because like many, it’s just not my business or my story to tell. I’d rather talk about things closer to me, things that match my goals.
Tomorrow I leave the same place after two years, what have been the highlights and the lowlights?
Well, me being me, one of my favourite moments was watching Community on a Virgin Australia flight after a long day of meetings. Possibly totally random, but such things really warm you to a company! And Virgin were already my airline of choice. Plus, on the same flight, a flight attendant kept offering me wine (sadly I’d taken some allergy medication and couldn’t drink).
I don’t have a specific lowlight. I think the lowlight is just knowing that regardless of the job I do, a corporate job isn’t what I wanted. There were busy & stressful days, but isn’t that true of any job?
Does that mean it has been all bad?
Technically I worked on some thing very unique, never to be repeated.
It’s just something I don’t overly care about – it pays my bills and while that’s good, it’s not soul-achingly important to me.
I’m not sure if I should be sad, or if I’ve already mentally checked out and am moving towards the next thing. Maybe, having pretty much always been a contract worker, I just don’t bother with emotions on these things because it’s not worth the effort.
How do you feel when you leave a job?
