Oh my god! I just quit my job! Ok, now that the histrionics are over…Yes, I handed in my resignation on Monday and I am leaving Investors Group at the end of next week. It’s hard to believe, but I’ve been with IG for over 10 years. I’m going to miss the people I worked with on the web team and throughout the company dearly, but it was time for a change. A fun ride while it lasted.
In December, I will begin my new position as the Senior E-Media Communications Specialist at Great-West Life. I’m super excited to try something new; even though I’m going to GWL (IG’s sister company) and doing a similar role, it still seems fun and fresh to me. Someday I will get that dream job of swimming in shark cages, but until then, bring me your horribly formatted, passive, boring and way too long web content and I will take a bite out of it. Was that too cheesy? Yeah, thought so.
“For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” Steve Jobs
