After 3.5 years at Cortexon I wanted to go back to more “brainy” stuff. I thought I wanted to go back to research. More specifically, I wanted to do CFD analysis as I’m fascinated by efficiency and optimization. MCA was of great help and support, as they guided me in my search. Eventually I ended up at Nordson, far from the scientific environment I was looking for. In the end though, it served me very well in growing my knowledge about company politics. I also learned a tremendous amount of how people are different and thus also need to be treated differently.
