New career chapters require lots of caffeine

After working just 6 weeks shy of 11 years as a communications specialist for a huge global Swedish industrial conglomerate, today I am starting a new job as a communications specialist for slightly smaller global Swedish industrial conglomerate. Well, operational headquarters is in Sweden at least, corporate HQ is in Switzerland (BUMMER!  😉 ) which is probably going to confuse the hell out of some of my geographically-challenged American readers.

And, in keeping up with a rather random tradition that has seen me start a number of new jobs on days that are significant for other reasons (I started my 1st full-time corporate communications job in Sweden on Prince Charles‘ birthday in 2004 and made the switch from radio to print journalism on the anniversary of the JFK assassination a bunch of years earlier than that), today’s career move is sponsored by the first-ever International Coffee Day. (Do note the photo caption in multiple languages … including Esperanto!)

Given my personal preference to start the workday early and the fact that I am now commuting to Lund (20-35 minutes depending on mode of public transport), as well as my deep and abiding love for coffee, I think this coincidence is especially appropriate. And yes, I will be following the video’s instruction to mark the occasional on social media today. Join me, won’t you?

    I just found this! I must say you use a lot fewer words than I do when I post on my blog. But then I’m retired and don’t really care if anyone reads my blathering or not. Be well, and post again. And “Hi” to Doc Darling.

    I did know you blogged Fr. Ed! I’m going to bookmark it now! Dr. Darling says “Hi” back!

Feed my ego!
