I’m starting a new job today. I have much and varied experience of starting new jobs. I’ll not lie, I’m 42 years old and I’ve never had a single job that I’ve been in for 12 months.
Don’t judge me. I know it’s not a good look on your CV and all that, but that’s who I am. I’m a kid whose first taste of work was freelancing a website for the local photo printing shop who had noticed me come in with my PhotoShop creations when I was at Newcastle University studying psychology in 1995 (ish). I’ve been a freelancing cut & paste script kiddie ever since. Going with the most interesting and highest paying jobs and standing on the shoulders of giants, a career in front end web development isn’t like the olden days.
Likesay I’ve started many new jobs both good and bad in that time. I hope for a good one this time around. They’re a great company who specialise in ecommerce sites using magento have taken the time to properly recruit a front end developer they feel will be a good fit in their company culture and I’m ready to engage with that. Hi ho.
