Reflecting on a Significant Career Change: My Journey from QualityWorks to Konabos
Updated: Jun 16
In this blog post, I share my heartfelt reflections on leaving QualityWorks, expressing gratitude for the incredible team and highlight the reasons behind my decision to embark on a new professional journey with Konabos.
Making a career change is never an easy decision, especially when you have spent six years in a company like QualityWorks. The journey has been transformative, and I am incredibly grateful for the opportunities and the amazing team that I had the privilege to work with. However, there comes a time when we must recognize the need for new challenges and explore new paths.
Gratitude for QualityWorks and its Impactful Team
QualityWorks holds a special place in my heart. The six years I spent there were filled with growth, learning, and meaningful collaborations. The fantastic team that surrounded me, led by CEO Stacy Kirk, made a profound impact not only on my life but also on the lives of many others. Stacy Kirk's visionary leadership and unwavering commitment to excellence served as an inspiration, fostering an environment of innovation and personal development.
Despite the deep gratitude I hold for QualityWorks, I knew in my heart that it was time to embark on a new professional journey. Making the decision to leave was not easy, as it meant bidding farewell to cherished colleagues and a familiar work environment. However, I recognized the importance of embracing change and seeking fresh challenges to fuel my personal and career growth.
Embracing the Unknown and Overcoming Challenges
In December 2022, an exciting opportunity presented itself in the form of a position with Konabos. Their willingness and capability to provide me with what I required, combined with the chance to contribute my expertise to their QA practices, made it a wonderful synergy. With a mix of fear, excitement and confidence, I took the leap and joined the Konabos team.
Leaving behind the comfort and familiarity of QualityWorks was not without its challenges. Stepping into the unknown required resilience and adaptability. However, the transition to Konabos has exceeded my expectations. The supportive team, the collaborative work environment, and the opportunity for personal and professional growth have been remarkable. I have found a balance between my career aspirations and my personal life, experiencing a level of fulfillment that reaffirms the positive outcome of my decision.
As I reflect on my decision to leave QualityWorks and embrace new horizons, it fills me with gratitude and excitement. The journey has been transformative, and the experiences and relationships I gained will forever shape my professional path.
As I eagerly explore the future, I am reminded of the importance of embracing change, stepping out of our comfort zones, and seeking new opportunities for growth. Leaving QualityWorks was not an end but rather a new beginning, one that opens doors to new possibilities, perspectives, and personal fulfillment.
I hope this serves as an inspiration for those facing similar crossroads in their careers, reminding them of the transformative power of embracing change and pursuing new opportunities.
