Today I was the new kid on the block and started a new role in a different team. I've come to realise and accept that I am just not the type of person that can do the same job day in day out for years on end. For a long time I struggled with the expectation that job hopping is frowned upon and that stability and longevity are desirable traits when it comes to work experience.
As awful as it might sound, whilst I love learning about new things I also get bored quite quickly. Once I feel like I have mastered something I lose interest very quickly and want to move onto the next thing.
An opportunity popped up in HR for a similar role to what I was doing so I jumped at the opportunity. I had worked with the Hiring Manager before so I didn't even have to interview for the role! So today began my new adventure into HR systems, and it started in a red Asos skirt from a few years ago.
It was sad to say goodbye to my old role but I felt I had gotten everything I could out of it. One of my stakeholders on my last day sent me this lovely email:
It really made my day. It made me feel like the midnight conference calls and all the weekends and public holidays spent in the office were worth it.
Here's to a good 9 months work-wise!
