One of the best things my brother said to me when I was worrying over all the things that changing jobs would mean was “you don’t even know if they want you yet!”. True… I was worrying about this that and ther other and what decision to make and I hadn’t even gotten a phone call. For now, go through the internet process, see if you are given an offer, and THEN make your decision. Don’t worry about what to do about it until then.

And I think you should take a chance and go for what you really want to do. Don’t stay and get comfortable… You become me when you do that, and end up working somewhere for 8 years too long.

Based on only the information you gave us, I don’t know why this is even a question.

@Mrs. Mustang:  Of course, you can never know what a job & job atmosphere is going to be like until you get there. Maybe it will be better, maybe it will be worse. But, I think it’s better to take the risk and try something different, than to stay where you are. No regrets! Good luck! I hope you get offered the job.

@julies1949:  Agreed!

OP, if you get this new job, I don’t see a single reason why you shouldn’t take it. If you are worried about missing your coworkers, go out for dinner or drinks every once in a while! Any job that makes you want to curl up into the fetal position on a regular basis is not worth it. Run away.

It’s scary to change jobs but it sounds like the new one would be better. Try not to worry now though. Just focus on making a good impression at the interview and decide when you (hopefully) get an offer.
