Shaking it Up in Another Way
Yesterday morning I gave my 3 weeks notice at work. There was a lot of stunned disabelief, with my boss asking repeatedly if something had happened to upset me that had made me mad. No, just time for a change. I like the company, the job and the people. I just need to see what else I can do.
Have been talking to a non-manufacturing company for a couple of months, got the pre-pre offer, then the pre-offer, took and passed the various tests (background, drug etc), got the official offer and officially accepted the offer.
As I told my current boss, "I would like to think I can come back if things don't work out for me."
He said he would be happy to have me back any time.
I hope it doesn't come to that, but it is nice to know there is a fallback position available.
Now the work of trying to train someone on how to run several different computer programs, not to mention the processes that are used in my job.
Just trying to shake things up a bit, and succeeding.
Congrats on the new job! I did the same kind of thing when I left the employ of a defense contractor back in 1996 and headed to a small firm that was entirely different from what I'd been doing before.

Bogie--Sorry to be late in commenting. Don't know whether my memory is at fault or whether TypePad hiccuped and failed to save my comment (as it did on my blog a day or so ago).
Congratulations! You're getting to take on a new challenge without burning any bridges. Wonderful!
