Out of the blue

On Friday, I was contacted by a headhunter.

It was one of those generic sounding messages that never lead anywhere. A bit vague, but the location and role sounded interesting to me.

I am currently not looking at leaving my current company, let alone a move (considering we are soon moving to Spain and are already engaged in the process), but this “opportunity” is potentially life-changing.

So, I replied to the recruiter’s message asking for more information before agreeing to a call.

The recruiter sent me the job description and a high level overview of the remuneration.

Let’s say that now they had my interest.

I shared my CV and yesterday the recruiter asked me for a call, which I agreed to.

They will share my details with their client, and I should hear from them next week.

This has put my head in absolute disarray.

I am now researching the location, CoL, schools, you name it.

It causes me a little bit of anxiety. I am trying to not let this get to me, and I am already counting of this not going further.

However, career wise, I would be a tremendous step forward, not to mention financially also.

Time will tell. For now, I have let it all out in writing here, and hope I can manage to keep it out of my head until I hear more.


Wow that’s great news! Congrats dude! Does that mean Spain is no go if you take this?

It is VERY early to tell if there will be anything, but yes, I will say no to Spain, and move to another location 😉
