It's been a while, hasn't it?

So...I started in a new job a little over a month ago. It's another of those 6 months contracts, and even though my manager has already asked me if I'd like to stay on IF a position opens up within the company, I'll probably be jobless again by September. Until then though, I'll just give it everything I have; while applying for other jobs outside of the company in my spare time.

I'm working as a training coordinator for a marketing analytics company, and the clue to my job description is in the title: I plan and coordinate the training sessions for our partners and clients in the EMEA region, so that they can become certified (super)users of our marketing and business analytics software. Once they've reached that status, they'll be able to measure and weigh the reach and effectiveness of their online presence and campaigns. Our clients are mostly publishers, media agencies and broadcasting organisations, but there's also a few charities, non-profit health organisations, and even a cruise liner company that want to find out whether their investments in online platforms are paying off. The trainings can be delivered online, through open enrolment, or in company as a live classroom session, and can last from a few hours to a few days. It's an interesting new area for me, and I've taken a few online courses myself to familiarise myself with the product -- but mainly I'm just there to look after the organisational and administrative sides of things.

David Berkeley visited The Netherlands in the last week of March, and I took some of my erstwhile colleagues at Curvature to see him in Amsterdam. I was a bit nervous about bringing them, but I needn't have been: they absolutely loved him. Note to self: you have got excellent taste in music, so by all means, share it!

I was just thinking about you the other day. Sorry to hear that it's another 6 month contract, but it sounds like an interesting job. Here's hoping you find something a little more permanent soon!

If I'm honest, I have been thinking of you, too. Funny how that goes: I wonder how people are, but then I never pick up the phone, or log on...

It seems 6 months contracts are all that's on offer these days; but in this case, there's a valid reason for it: I'm covering for maternity leave.
