Changing Jobs

Friday, February 21, 2014

Wow this is a different expereience all together.....

When I finally got the job offer after the long wait, I kind of deflated. It was all I wanted, but instead fo being Happy I was just tired. Must have really been under tension.
At my old job, everything was going crazy as well, so i was more sure than ever that the move is the best thing for me.
Well the happiness did set in after a while.
Now I am winding up at the old job. Only today & Monday left, then I am done. But I am glad that yesterday I finally had a feeling of success:
We finally did the presentation of the PM Methodology we developoed to the Senior Management. It had taken me for ever to figure out how to put it on graphs. But it was worth it! We had the full attention of those present, but did not get all to attend. There were lively discussions, but in the end they agreed with us, only suggested some minor changes. Yes! A buy-in! Now I can leave in the assurance that all the hard work was nto in vain and the team I am leaving behind will have the Senior Support they need to take things further. I know it will not be smooth sailing, but at least it is a start.

I am also glad that I decided to take my leave days next week instead of having them paid out, since I need a few days to compose myself and get internally ready for the new job.
