So it begins…
However, there are a few things I am going to miss if my job hunt results in a successful transition. I do like most of the people I work with, my commute is not too bad, and I like having a window office. So if I am able to find a place that offers me those things and better pay, then I am out of here faster than that damn roadrunner. There will be a cloud of dust from my tracks that spell out, “C-ya.” (Beep! Beep!)
I have already gotten a call back from one potential employer. This company is very large, reputable, and nearby to where I live. Plus, they are hiring for a position I am currently occupying and totally qualified for. I asked for a salary bump of about 24K (I told you I had been screwed). I know this might seem greedy since some people make that much a year, but if I am going to make the move, then I am going to make it from a “sure thing to another sure thing” (to quote my dad). I do have it pretty good where I am at for now, so the pressure to get a new job is not as great as it would be if I were unemployed. So I have nothing but bargaining power and time on my side. Besides, everything I do is art (my mantra) and I am worth it, goddamnitthankyouverymuchhaveaniceday.
So I have the interview scheduled in the New Year. It will take up an entire afternoon with various people grilling me. Time for me to grow those big balls and strut around.
