Ive been an engineer by profession for almost 3 years now. I graduated from an institute of technology, so if i take that into account its been 7 years ive been in the engineering world. A specific branch of it, software engineering. I build my career on it and so far, it is pleasant and exciting journey.
Few days ago, my manager handed me an unexpected news. I will be transferred to another department. Ill tell you more about this department later when its official but i can tell you that it is waaaay different than my background.
Somehow i took this in a very negative way. Its like being forced to leave everything i settled myself with. Engineer is how i define myself all this time and now i had to take that off. Fear, uncertainty and doubt which clouds my mind can be boiled down to one simple sentence :
Will i be able to survive in that new territory ?
Then i found this comic on zenpencils.com :
