I heard back today, my background check is back and looks good, so they offered me a job. I’m shocked, ecstatic, nervous, and I still feel like it’s a big joke. But it’s not. I’ll have an official offer letter on Monday (the recruiter wasn’t exactly sure what my pay was going to be as no one had told either of us). My last day at current Big Box is the 20th.
No, they don’t know yet. I couldn’t find the resignation form at work today, so I’m going to have to go Old School and write a legit resignation letter and deliver it on Monday. Seeing as how they just gave me a slight promotion, I honestly feel bad for leaving. But this job is a huge jump in pay and responsibility and actually *gasp* uses my education.
I know I’ll feel better once I do it, but I hate feeling like I’m letting people down. They’ve done a lot for me in the last year – gave me 40 hour weeks even though I was part time, working with and around my personal schedule when needed, and then finally giving me a new position with a slight pay increase that’s full time.
This is one of those things that’s really not good for my mental health. I’m dosing up on the CBD all weekend because this is prime Panic Attack material.
Ugh, this is the part that I hate.
(But I’m still totally excited. I’ve been looking for a job for two years. And finally – FINALLY – all of that work paid off. It’s vindicating.)
