I appear to live in a void. A void between the various roles I can very well perform, but which I am apparently deemed uncapable of. I have spent 15 years as a top-performer, yet I’m apparently:

  • “too senior” for Head of IT roles
  • “too broad and experienced” for Solution Architecture, Enterprise Architecture or Head of Architecture roles
  • “not coming from a CTO title” for CTO roles
  • “too technical” for CIO roles
  • “not a software developer” for Head of Engineering roles
  • “too corporate” for corporate-owned “smaller” businesses

I’ve considered farming, but I’m “too urban”.
