Some Unexpected Time Off

By smithdm3 - Posted on 10 July 2007

Well, it's been a while since I've blogged. But I've got some interesting news now, so here goes. I've ended up with at least a couple of weeks of somewhat unexpected time off work.

You see, I've been a bit unhappy in the sales role I'd been transitioned into at the beginning of the year. It's just not in my nature to do the kind of things that sales requires. Anyway, I stuck it out for six months, but my manager and I both agreed that it was probably time for me to move on. I don't like the job, and he can probably find someone better suited to it.

I may stay at Nortel, there are a couple of potential projects that I'd enjoy working on and could get some good new experience with. I may however also choose to move on and accept a severance package. It would be weird to move to another company, but I think the experience of working for a different fulltime employer (I haven't worked for anyone else in the last 10 years) would be valuable.

I'll keep you updated on how things go. In the meantime, if you've got a position that you think might benefit from the value I can bring to it, let me know. You can find my CV here.


Hey there! Mom told me yesterday that this might be in the works... Well, who knows what other interesting opportunities there are out there? Are you off now?


Yep, I'm off now. There are some interesting opportunities out there, both inside and outside of Nortel. We'll see how it goes.
