Last week my LinkedIn and email was hit with a bunch of messages congratulating me on my work anniversary. “Huh? What work anniversary are they on about?”
It’s my IBM global one!
I was negligent in forgetting my very move to Big Blue. The work that I did and do, the opportunities at my disposal, and the very fact I live and work in Tokyo amply shows becoming an IBMer was a great move for me.
And the people I work with in Japan and globally are valuable colleagues and, in some wonderful instances, friends.
Happy work birthday to me!
