“Freedom and career are equally important to me.”
Freedom has always been very important to me. Just like my career. That’s why I chose an employer who understands that I refuel the energy that I need in everyday project life during my spare time. Since coming to mgm, I have traveled around the world twice. After the first time, where I used my accumulated vacation time, I knew I wanted more. The next trip was to take at least 6 months and include more goals and experience. In an open conversation with a supervisor, we worked together to develop a way of fulfilling this wish taking into account mutual interests. The solution that was finally offered to me included everything you could ask for. I continued my projects and stayed with the client until a few days before the trip to complete my tasks and hand them over to other colleagues. Then I was able to pack my backpack and board the airplane without any worries. During the trip, I kept in contact with mgm, and thanks to good project planning, the career break could be extended by one month. In the meantime, I even did a small volunteer consulting project on a Pacific island. The experience of using the knowledge from my consulting career for a small island community has confirmed my decision to work as a consultant. These six months have enriched me with many experiences that I have been able to integrate in my professional life. Now project life continues. And I am already planning my next trip.
