I put in my 2 weeks notice yesterday with Oracle. I have had so many ups and downs with this job. But I think I have tried so many times to make it work, that I am leaving without regrets.
I am going to work for Hearth and Home Technologies. The offices are in Lakeville, so it will be a much better commute for me. I will be traveling quite a bit for the first 9 months or so, but I think the travel will do a lot of good in my career development there too.
This has been such a long process. I applied for the job in August. I interviewed twice the end of September. They offered me the job end of October. I hemmed and hawed and decided not to take it. I found out that I wasn’t able to move departments at my current job, so I went back to them and met with them a couple more times and finally they offered me the job again. Again I thought about it and gave my boss a couple options in retaining me which they were not able to do right away.
Ultimately I think it has been a well thought out decision and I’m very excited. My last day with my current job is the 25th, and my first day on the new job is January 30th.
