Best wishes to you Michael in your new endeavors. ... We hope you will still stop into our message boards and engage with us from time to time!


 

Mayam's message expresses my own sentiments. I regret missing Michael's departure 18 days ago. I enjoyed interacting with him in this forum, and I hope someone can convey my own best wishes for his success and satisfaction in his new position. And again, I hope he'll return with a blog post or comment from time to time.

Thanks for the good wishes! Do you think there's a trend where companies 'get rid' of current workers in favor of cheaper, younger employees?

Best wishes Michael and many thanks for all the efforts put forth into All Analytics. 

The job changing scenario seems to be increasing in scope as we enter times when the employer has lots of highy intelligent, and skilled folks to choose from. The supply of workers and usual scarcity of jobs, at least well paying ones, keep job changes a more frequent chore then when I entered the work force many decades ago. In those days one could look forward to decades of service at one firm. Now that only happens in government agencies if even there.

I have to say even with the economy as it was, I do think the number of different jobs referenced is a bit high. 

I would think it depends on your profession and industry as well.   But there is no doubt, people have been forced to move from job to job much more than they would like in the past decade.

Michael.   It is certainly disheartening to hear you are leaving, but we all understand change is the only constant in today's world. 

I wish you the best and know we will see you every now and then in the A2 forum.
