In December next year, 2008, I will have to decide whether I want to prolong my stay in Finland or mover over to some other place.
Provided that there will be another place. It so happened the person in charge of us all, as human resources representative, paid us a visit end of last week (incidentally, just before Pikkujoulu).
I had a quick chat with her and… the number of positions for China will be a lot lower than anticipated. She was aware that many were already in line to go there.
I didn't take the news too well.
After a couple of days, I've had time to digest and reconsider it.
I'll polish my resume and apply to anything there for one because I don't easily take no for an answer.
There are also other projects although they're still at earlier stages plus we're not the only one in competition.
I also need to consider pausing and possibly going back to school. I did it 10 years ago (already!), thoroughly enjoyed it, and with more than 2 decades to work still it might be better improving my 'education' and validating specialties wrapping them up with a nice diploma.
All this, I would have appreciated talking about with HR … if it wasn't THE trade which definition was among the most deceptive.
