I joined LinkedIn on Monday... mainly in response to a letter sent to staff at work about the upcoming restructure that has been “impending” for just under two years. Regular readers will know that I love my job... but that I don’t go into great detail about work-related matters in what is essentially a public forum. Safe to say it’s bloody hard not to feel unsettled...
And so I uploaded a photo and added various bits and pieces about my education and work history. The end result wasn’t too bad...well I’d employ me!
Three days later and I’ve gained quite a number of contacts from various times and aspects of my life – including an old school friend I haven’t seen for more than thirty years. I genuinely have no idea what the future holds; if I had a choice I would love to keep doing what I do... and help to develop those around me, but I guess things will become clearer with time.
I have to admit that searching to try and find one or two names from my past was becoming potentially addictive – but the fact that my school contemporaries all seem to be CEOs, Directors and the like soon cured me. Evidently I might not have climbed quite so high up the career ladder (for “might not” read “have not”), but I’m good at what I do... and how many other people are about to have a Doctor Who book published?!
Anyway, this is a quick “thank you” to those with whom I am officially “connected”. If you want to join the fun, just click this link!
Onwards and upwards Kirbs...
All my own work... almost.
