Beach & Turmoil

Zandvoort aan Zee & Financial Crisis...

This weekend Shosh and I went to Zandvoort aan Zee. And even better, we brought Piggy :-) A nice walk on the beach and some strolling around in the shopping area is a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. We even decided to buy some drinks and snacks and have a beach pre-dinner... Unfortunately it got pretty cold when the sun started to go down, but it kind of added to the "Dutch" feeling.

Besides fun in the weekend and evenings, my job keeps going on as well of course. And as you might have noticed there is quite a bit turmoil surrounding ING these days. a massive loss and a lay-off of thousands. Will it affect me? To be honest, I don't know, but I am pretty confident I am in a safe zone. ING spends a good deal of money and effort in recruiting trainees and I don't see why they would lay us off... But then again, these are unpredictable times and anything can happen.
Besides these uncertainties, I am still enjoying my time at ING and get to know the company better and better. I also am still working on the "merger" between the Postbank and ING Bank, which is pretty cool since the results of our efforts become ever more visible. Time went by so fast that I am already thinking about what assignment to do next. What it will be..? Time will tell!

That's all for now. Hope all of you are doing well in these turbulent weeks!

Ruudje, Shosh & Piggy
