Following on from my post about Ireland’s slowing Celtic tiger economy, today let’s turn to the small nation of Iceland where banking collapse now seems to be triggering increasingly angry protests.
(For an insight into the developing social unrest see this article in Thursday’s UK Guardian newspaper: Iceland government collapse.
A while back, one of my American friends in Japan relocated to Iceland for a dream IT job with an Icelandic computer games company. He&‘s still there and, as far as I know, still gainfully employed.
He’s also an experienced IT professional and I’m fascinated (now wearing my career coaching hat) to find out how white collar folks are coping / surviving in Reykjavik.
I’ll be sending him a list of questions and we’ll see which ones he can answer without getting sacked 😉
