    Question New Job Opportunity....Should I Stay or Should I go Now?

    Hola peeps!

    I have a job opportunity that I have recently learned about that sounds kind of cool. I met today with the hiring supervisor and she was really cool, and the work seems interesting, and definitely different then what I am used to. In addition, it pays around $5,000 more a year, there is lots of travel (which I like), and it seems like a fun change. It looks like a go, and the hiring supervisor said she would hire me on the spot after our informal interview, we just need to go through HR.

    I am pretty sure I want to take this step, but I am a little scared to leave where I have been for eight years. The new job is a cubicle, as opposed to my nice office, but I can also work from home, alternative schedules, etc. I would lose a ton of sick time; my vacation time would be paid to me.

    Have you guys changed jobs? Was it hard for you? Anything I should be considering that I haven't? I am not sure why this is so hard, but I have been here a while, and know everyone, etc.

    Thanks!!

    Hmm... I think you need to take a "mental health day" of your sick time to think it over

    ...Maybe a couple, since it's such a long drive to DL!

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    I say go for it...If it sucks you can always look for another. Nothing ventured nothing gained. I have moved to different areas 4 times. One place has been just as good as the other but for different reasons. No matter where you go you will always miss someone. If they are truly friends they will stay in touch. Good Luck!

    Thanks very much. I wouldn't have to move, I can still live in the same place, it would just mean traveling more, which is cool with me.
    It would just be such a big change!

    It all comes down to whether you are a bird in the hand kind of guy. Do you like to gamble?

    ^ Sometimes, but only when talking about re-using dirty needles and other harmless stuff like that...

    I guess I wish I could try it for a month, and still be able to change my mind. Too bad I can't.

    Max - Go for it. What do you have to lose? Worst case scenario, you don't like it, it's not for you, so you'll have to find something else. Easy. Best case scenario? You love it and are thrilled with it and the opportunities it presents to you. Everything in life is a risk.

    It would depend on what you want.. and how much money would you really earn and what you want.. (think about gas and other things.. make a list of pros and cons..)
