As many of you already know, I’ve accepted a security analyst position at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada starting in August. I fully expect to hear “You left Bermuda for Lethbridge???” about a million times between now and probably well into 2010. It was, however, a very strategic move for my career and my family life so I have absolutely no regrets about coming to Bermuda and leaving at this time.
So what does this mean? Well my day-to-day job will fall into the following 3 categories:
That being said, I have a feeling that the 3 categories will probably expand to other duties as time goes on and other challenges present themselves.
I’ll probably also see everyone at conferences with greater frequency…hopefully as a presenter. The University sounds very supportive of my presentation/paper goals which is something I am quite happy about. They are also big supporters of training and education, for obvious reasons, and this should equate to more training opportunities. I also hope to blog more frequently and work on more personal projects (perhaps another book or two…maybe even a podcast). Only time will tell.
So wish me luck…it’s a big move back to Canada but I’m looking forward to it!
