I first heard about the opening several months ago but wasn't able to submit an application for it until the beginning of October. I was given an interview last Tuesday and on Friday, was offered the job. I didn't mention anything about it until now because I wanted to let my boss know about it before I said anything publicly. She knew that I was applying and had been one of my references so she wasn't exactly surprised when we met this morning. I do feel a huge sense of relief right now, being able to tell folks about it and actually knowing that I have the new job.
The few folks I spoke to about it while I was going through the application process kept telling me that I would get the job. I don't like to be too confident about these things though because I have had the rug pulled out from under me in the past. The job is still under the umbrella that my VP holds but in a different functional unit. I'll actually be moving to a new building entirely (and will have my own office!). I've worked in the same building (although I've been in many different offices) for 11 years now. It's a big change for me but I'm excited about it.
I have some vacation booked around the holidays. My last day in the office will be December 14. When I go back to work on January 7, I'll be in my new post. It's going to be a very nice way for me to start the new year!!
