I’ve been fairly absent online lately, but now that things have been “officially” announced, it’s time to explain.
About 6 weeks ago, the VP of software development for our division approached me and asked if I’d be interested in accepting a new position; a promotion to QA Team Lead on another product within our company. I’ve been with the company 8 years now and I’ve been working towards a team lead position for many years now.
This is a significant career move for me, but comes with a number of new responsibilities and challenges. This position is on a management track so it includes managing a small team of offshore QA engineers. In the coming weeks I’ll also be traveling to Illinois and leaving the kids for the first time. Listen Lady, it’s the biggest supermom conundrum; work life balance.
I’m grateful for the opportunity. Humbled for the trust that the management has seen in me. I officially began the position on June 3, and I’ve begun transitioning to the new role. Right now I’m attempting to juggle both my new postion and old, which is where most of my time has been spent lately.
It’s been a long road to get here, filled with many long nights and early mornings, but well worth the wait. A very special thanks to my hubby, for always having my back and supporting me in this new venture
