  • I have been offered a new job. It was not a job I even knew was available. When I learned about it, I promptly got off on the wrong foot by mixing up the interview days and completely missing the originally scheduled meeting day and time. They were kind enough to meet with me again, at the time I had stuck in my head.

    I assumed they were being kind. But, do people really interview folks they aren't interested in hiring? I don't know. I assumed because the Interviewer is friends with my former boss, he was going to see me because she told him that they really should talk to me before making a decision.

    The interview was on a Thursday. They offered me the position on the following Monday. I accepted and put in my notice.

    The last two weeks have been like some crazy super slide to the last day. I have been so busy handing over documents, information, finishing projects, making sure someone knows where my files are, and so on.

    I actually have meetings scheduled up until the very last second that I walk out the door. Something about that seems insane! I'm L E A V I N G. I will no longer be there. Buh-bye. Hasta la vista. Why does anyone want my last thoughts about a process in which I will no longer play a part?

    But, I'm moving on to a new adventure and making a career advancement move, at that. The super slide is coming to the bottom.

    The question is, will I be jumping on another one or will this new venture be a completely different mode of travel all together?
