I briefly tweeted about this the other day but thought I'd whip up something a bit more formal on the subject.
As of 2/8 I'll officially... sort of change jobs. I will be "loaned out" as a "project resource" to another team but still reporting to my current boss for now. This other team is one that I have had on my radar, so to speak, and in my career path - so this is all sorts of good in my mind.
This group has all sorts of IT projects coming up that they need to get rolling on for this new year and I'm going to be helping with a lot of those I suspect. To be honest though, I have no idea exactly what I'm going to be doing yet. I haven't really been given too much detail... or any detail for that matter. But that's OK.
I'm happy to be moving to something else that will hopefully be more to my liking. Not to mention that I (don't think) won't have to be dealing directly with customers from a "customer service" point of view anymore. So that means no more taking cases and fixing problems or deploying new systems or doing upgrades. That sort... YAY!
So I think I move around 2/5 and will start this new position the following Monday. And here's to hoping it becomes permanent and I can stay there.
