On Friday, I handed in my letter of resignation from my position as chief consultant in the National IT and Telecom Agency.
So, quitting a perfectly good and interesting job, why? Well, I’ve been employed by government all my profesisonal life and think it’s time for me to stand on my own feet 🙂
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed being a civil servant, and the decision to move on has not been an easy one. But, as I’m closing in on turning 40, I have felt an urge for changes in my life.
I don’t know whether my on-going “watch the complete West Wing seasons 1-4 in a month”-exercise under the concept “inactive vacation” has been the turning point in my considerations. Perhaps. I’ve served my terms, it’s time to move on.
So. What’s next?
Wait and see. Hmm. Anyone need a consultant? Call me.
Well, I’ll actually still be in the government payroll system, because I still have my non-tenured associate professorship at Copenhagen Business School, and will start teaching EA there and will also continue being in charge of the CBS-run EA-course at the IT-University, if we get students enough – we just need a few more to be safe; anyone interested? Sign up now! It’ll be a great class, I promise!
