Matching my own record: 5 and a half years at EPS!

Wow, today, May 16 2008, I’m matching my personal record at working with a company: 5 and a half years, or to be more precise, 2003 days.  🙂

Here’s a little history:

  • I’ve had my first full-time job when I was 12. It lasted only for a full week; I just couldn’t stand the boss.  🙂
  • When I was 14, I took a temporary job (also full-time), filling in for a friend for a full month.
  • The next Monday when I was done with the previous job, I was hired by a company across the hall: that was the company where I had stayed for 5 years and a half years. I started as a courier. After a year, I got promoted to a financial clerk (at the age of 15). Almost three years later, got promoted to a programmer/analyst.
  • From the previous job I went to a new company, as an IT guy (doing mostly software development, but also a lot of computer setup, networking, hardware, user support, etc.). I worked there for about 3 years.
  • Next, new company, now dedicated to software development. Worked there for about 14 months.
  • On to another company, where I’ve worked for about 8 or 9 months.

The reader have probably noticed the pattern: after the company where I’ve worked for over 5 years, my stay at every job was getting shorter and shorter.

Eventually I’ve decided to go solo as an independent consultant. I had my clients, I’ve put together some conferences for software developers, etc. That lasted for about 8 months. I wanted to have no strings attached to any company because at that time there was a good chance EPS would be hiring me, so I wanted to make sure I could join the company at any time. And that happened in November of 2002.

The rest, as they say, is history.  🙂
