My original post got marked as spam. Anyways….
I applied for a new job this past Monday and I haven’t heard back yet. I’m going to give a friendly call on Monday 01/28 to “make sure my resume was recieved”. I’m so worried about backlash from HR/management. Our company has a history of “cutting off dead ends”, so to speak. Some Bees may remember my previous posts about Fiance not getting reviews/raises for 3.5 years – that ended in him brign called into the head office and pressured not to leave/intimidated by the CFO. I’m very scared that the same will happen to me – and if I don’t get the new position, all this emotional labor will be for nothing.
My current job isn’t terrible: I work normal business hours, I have my own office, I’m paid okay for someone without a degree (yet). Alas: there’s no room for me to grow when I do finish school in a year and a half, I also haven’t gotten a review/raise in 2.5 years, and HR keeps decreasing employee benefits. The position I applied for is WFH, and lots of room to grow.
The wedding is 1.5 years away (same month as graduation wth), and we plan on TTC soon afterward. I figure if I were going to look for new employment, the time is now so that I’m fully settled when a baby comes. I guess I’m just venting/looking for advice/want to be sure I’m doing the right thing.
Any thoughts, Bees?
