Hello, you, the person reading this. The title caught you because you are either in the middle of what you believe to be a poor career choice, or you have had one in the past, or you are looking to make a career move and want to make sure that you don’t misstep. I have worked in the technology industry, all of it in fintech, for thirty years. During that time, I’ve had many roles, in practically every area of the technology organization. And, yes, I have ended up in those situations where I would say in the middle of the assignment that possibly it was a “poor career choice”.
