All my previous career moves were somehow unintentional, it's mainly due to the fact that I moved to different countries around Europe and the avaibility of jobs in every country, not always easy to find a day's job within your field of work, so far I have done about 5 major different careers, not counting the in between jobs to keep the cash flow coming in. :)

The reasons to move so often accross Europe have been both by choice and/or by nessecity.

I wish you success in your new career. ;-)
Thanks, Henri. Like you yourself say, there is no downside in the end if you have the right perspective. It builds character!!! : ) Just curious, what is the unemployemnt rate in EU collectively? The US is finally somewwhat down from last year to about 8%

PS- Andy is the way he is because he's had this incredible life, and not all of it has been fun. ( You can take that any way you like ; )
