I guess I am hirable.


The job interview with the tech job that I was really jazzed about? Well- six hours after my interview I received an offer letter. Huh.

It came as a bit of a shock, as I wasn’t sure they were all that impressed. Plus the speed at which I received the offer was unprecedented. I still am honestly reeling a little.

Since the current quality manager is retiring, it makes me think that I was just the right applicant at the right time. Either that or I had “enough” and they were all “meh. We’re running out of time— he’ll do.”

Either way, I’m not looking a gift horse in the mouth. I’m taking the job.

So today was my formal acceptance of the offer. And then the formal submission of my letter of resignation. Somehow I thought both would feel better than they did.

The offer I accepted is good- but not golden. There was one issue and it involves how much vacation they were willing to give me. (Spoiler: it isn’t much). Cutting my vacation by roughly 2/3’s felt a bit like a gut punch. But that was the only real negative.

Oh, that and I will no longer be able to bike commute.

Turning in my resignation should have felt better than it did. All the issues with management and the conservative views and the bigotry should have made me all “Suck it bitched! Peace out!” But instead the whole process just gave me anxiety. Mainly because I was not able to do them the courtesy of resigning in person— I had to call them because I’m home taking care of mom.

I know that by tomorrow word will begin leaking of my impending departure. And when I get back to work, there will be many awkward conversations, the biggest will be with the team I’m leaving behind.

Lastly, true to form I get no time off between jobs. The new company wants me to start mid May. So, right from frying pan to frying pan.

Anyway, suffice it to say I’m experiencing a big bundle of twisted up emotions. It’s like a champagne cork popped on a bunch of bottled up crap. I’m typing all this as I walk my old neighborhood, just to burn some restless energy.

    I totally get the mixed feelings. I hope the new job is a good one, and that you are able to transition out of the old one smoothly.

    I will admit to some anxiety over the incredibly quick acceptance, but I hope that is just my anxiety speaking.
