I sent my resignation via email to both of them on Tuesday. This is certainly not how I wanted to give my resignation, but I also didn’t know when my boss was returning to the office and I couldn’t wait for him to return.
Yesterday, two lead managers in the office were notified and it was then announced to the rest of the office. We had a meeting to determine who I’d be training on what. It’s funny; no one has asked what I’ll be doing, though two people did ask if I had another job lined up.
My new work environment will be a production environment, entirely different than my current job. And no, this job isn’t a tech writer, but my job title falls under the tech writer umbrella. The title is less significant, as this job is a ginormous step forward. Yes, there’s also a bump in pay, but the job has potential to lead to so much more opportunity and that’s priceless.
I don’t care if it sounds corny, I can’t even begin to express my gratitude for being chosen. As crazy as it may seem, I feel a weight lifted off my shoulders. Not that I’m going to start slacking – hardly, the real work, correction, the real fun begins in two weeks. My last day at this job is November 16; I start onboarding for the new job on November 17.
Monster goal for 2016 accomplished. Happy dance commencing.
