It’s been a couple of months since leaving my previous role. During that time I’ve looked at various career options, including being a house husband, but in the end decided upon being a developer for ThoughtWorks. The house husband option was a close contender, but I couldn’t get buy-in from my partner.
I decided that I wanted a fairly big departure from the kind of roles I’d had in the past, and for me, consultancy appeals. I believe I’ve gone in with my eyes wide open to the cons, such as the potential for bad projects and being placed in lousy geographical areas. The pros though, such as developing my XP skillset, working with cool people, getting involved in different projects with different technologies really excites me. Now I can’t wait to get going.
