10 Years Today ...

....I came back after my first day at work for a big bank in Zurich.... I was terrified but survived. I badly wanted the job and fought for the job. It took me about 6 months to go from online application, to first day at work, but it was worth it :-) I could not have imagined then, that I would still be with that company, or even still in the country ten years later! Mr.ncot now thinks I am officially institutionalized.

Since then I have ....

  • run hundreds of projects, worked with hundreds of colleagues, internal clients, external partners

  • had good days and bad days

  • been promoted twice

  • Had 4 different line managers

  • had at least 9 different workplaces at one address

  • travelled to our offices in Raleigh (US), Singapore, Wroclaw (Poland), London

  • Given hundreds of courses, attended a couple

  • been out on maternity leave twice and come back twice!

  • sent and received thousands of emails


It has been a blast so far, thank you to everyone who has shared the journey with me so far.
