Jobs I would like to try out

with 2 comments

Have you ever wondered how it would be like to have a completely different line of work than your acctual work?
I have had this thought a few times and I’ve come up with a list of jobs I find interesting, some of them are not realistic at all since it requires years of studies and work experience, but I still choose to mention them. Other jobs would probably only be interesting in a week or so. The jobs are randomly listed and not listed by most wanted :P

Okay here we go:

  • Crosswords author (sounds interesting enough, but just for a week or so).
  • Helicopter pilot (requires years of studies and flight experience)
  • Architect
  • Work at a local recycling factory (only for a week, just to see what they actually do there)
  • Athlete (but I guess that don’t count as a line of work)
  • Carpenter
  • Professional photographer
  • Car designer
  • Chef (I really like cooking)
  • Millionaire :P

Please add a comment if you have a list of jobs you’d like to try out.

Back in Norway

without comments

The past three weeks I’ve been in Newcastle (UK). I posted a blog entry about a month ago, stating that I’ll be leaving my current position in Derdubor AS and start up in Orange Bus, well Orange Bus is located in the heart of Newcastle, so I am moving to the UK :)

The past weeks have been used to find a place to live in Newcastle, waiting in offices (there is a lot of waiting when you try to get all the papers and stuff you need) to get a bank account and so on. Everything is now settled, I think :P My new home is being wired next week, so then I’ll be able to get online from home. The only thing missing right now is a UK mobile phone, but that will be sorted out in the beginning of November.

Now I am back in Norway to complete my last month at Derdubor AS before I go back to the UK and Orange Bus

PHP Vikinger

I attended the PHP vikinger unconference in Skien on Saturday. Rather than writing my own wrap up of the unconference I choose to link to the wrap up written by Mats Lindh and Derick Rethans

I’m looking for a job in Newcastle (UK)

without comments

I’ve started to look for a job in Newcastle Upon Tyne since my girlfriend and daugther are moving there in September. I’ve posted my resume and profile on totaljobs.co.uk, monster.co.uk, cwjobs.co.uk and justengineers.net. I’ve also set up a few job mailers which sends me the most recent IT jobs registered on the sites mentioned above.

So far I haven’t found any perfect matches, however, I’ve applied on a few jobs that sounds interesting.

Please take a look at my linkedin profile or resume If you are hiring and looking for a web developer or software engineer, and do not hesitate to contact me.

It is a bit sad that I have to resign from my position in Derdubor AS, because I got a couple of really good colleagues there and I learn a lot working there. However, I’m looking forward to new challenges in Newcastle.
