I’ve posted a few times before about how the company I work for doesn’t seem to be doing very well. Over the past few months things have been getting worse and I started to get nervous. One of my friends runs a recruitment company in the U.S. and when I asked him for advice on writing my CV he said that because I have worked here for so long (9 years) that I should just talk to my boss.

Yesterday the question “Is my job safe?” was met with a “No, not really.” So now I need to get my shit together, write a CV, build my LinkedIn profile, build my website again and see what I can find. One of the bigger issues is that I don’t actually know which direction I want to take my career. Ultimately I might just end up working for myself but I’m not in a position to do that and there are aspects of that which make me nervous.

Thankfully while this job has frustrated the hell out of me at times, it has also been a huge learning ground for my skills which will help with whichever direction I want to take.

In the meantime it’s time to be an adult which isn’t always fun. It usually means putting pants on.
