Last Wednesday, I gave possibly my worst ever performance at a job interview, for a job in Business Analysis for a fast-growing local Financial company. Didn't expect to hear anything back from them, but they offered me the job on Tuesday after I had left work for the day. I have accepted and, all being well, will be starting on 12th November.
I phoned my Boss to let him know and he was genuinely delighted for me, given that our funding runs out in 6 months.
So this is a Laugh/Cry post because I am leaving the best job I have ever had (Youth Work, Mentoring) after 4.5 years. I have loved every minute of it and have never woken up thinking "Bloody work today" sort of thing. A stark contrast to the previous 9 years of near-constant hell in Local Government. Yet I am finally back into full time work (after finishing my Degree in June) working for a very progressive company on a decent salary (for Hereford!) and career development.
I think my last day might be a bit drunkenly messy
