I’ve been with this company for more than 1 year (including my individual contractor stint) and tomorrow, I can finally let out an accumulated sigh:
Thank you for the patience, I am now a regular (permanent) employee. Work wasn’t so kind but it was worth it.
It’s been a wonderful stay and yet I’m still looking forward to a longer and satisfying tenure. If possible, this should be my longest and probably the last industrial stint before I go into the world of academe and share my experience to the next generation.
To all, thank you for the support. I would never get this far without a great deal of help and wise advice.
