Time to move on

One of my sons is in Bombay,India and attending a three-week technical training for a networking product. He recently moved from a customer related service job from a large telco to this company which is into network software product marketing and support.

Before his move, he mentioned about feeling his career was not getting anywhere because his job at that time although it paid well, kept him stagnant for almost a year. He waited but whatever it was, never came. And so he decided to move on.

All I advised him before he made the switch was, "wherever you feel happy and comfortable, that's where you should be. That is all that matters".

Before he left, he seemed enthusiastic about the job, beaming with pride that he was selected as one of the trainees. I am praying that he is finally where he deserves to be.
