Week twenty nine highlights.
Another busy week passed by. I did apply for three new opportunities and have not been shortlisted for four older positions. I had three phone interviews and did enjoy an interesting day at the 7th cologne IT summit.
Next week I will have a F2F interview Monday, a half day workshop about interesting news from IT Operations Management Tuesday, my monthly meeting with the government labor office Thursday and the next meeting of the Digital Media Usage working group in my daughter's school Friday. In between I plan to arrange a first phone interview with the highly confidential company with their headquarter location outside of Germany. Their HR head did give me a first call last Friday.
Just in case you have some spare time next week, some interesting reading material below. Have a successful week 😉:
