Giving my 2 weeks notice today....
I don't know if any of you will remember or not, but I posted a question about needing advice with a job interview waaay back when the Chit Chat forum was brand new. I'm too lazy to do a search on it, but I did get lots of helpful info from everyone at the time, however close I came at that time, I still didn't get the job.....but I've always been looking....LOL. Anyhow, I've recently had a couple of interviews for jobs that I applied for back in Nov-Dec of '02, and if you can believe it, I've actually been chosen by both companies to be hired, and will be getting a "letter of offer" from each of them today. The cool thing is, and I don't know all the details yet, but one of the jobs includes travelling all over the world, and being away from home for as many as 120 - 130 nights per year. Yes it would be nice to see the world on somebody elses nickel, and its a technical position doing what I like, but do I really want to be away that much? The other job, to which I've already accepted a conditional (over the phone) offer, is also a technical position, but is a Mon to Friday job, and is only about 15 min drive from home. I guess I'm just looking for some input on what I should do....without knowing all the details yet of course.....I will know the salary of the travelling job in a few hours, and a lot of it depends on the money, but do I want to travel?....or do I want to be home every night? I may never get another chance in this lifetime to see the world. I'm gonna have to weigh the pros and cons I know, but its already bugging me. Whatta ya think folks? Any thoughts?
