I’ve been working in my current company in my current position in HR for 8 months as a temp and just got hired on as a permanent employee about a month ago. I absolutely love my boss…she’s literally the best boss I have ever had! We get along so great and she’s always there if I have questions – we’ve become friends while still retaining a healthy respect for each other’s positions. Here’s my “dilemma”…she came to me last Monday and told me that our VP of Marketing wants me on her team. She said that while she would be terribly sad to lose me, she would never want to hold me back from a great opportunity if it’s what I wanted. So I spoke with the VP and the 2 people that I could potentially be reporting to (I get to choose which I’d rather work with) and after a lot of weighing the pros and cons and going back and forth over the past week, I told the VP yesterday that I wanted to accept the position. It’s a fabulous role (completely different from what I’m doing now) and will be new and challenging, which is something that I feel is lacking in my current role and I will be receiving a 15-20% salary increase.
I’m just having a hard time telling my current boss! I went into her office this morning to do some filing and chit chat a little and I totally chickened out!! I think she has a pretty good feeling that I will take this new position, but I know it’s going to upset her. I’ve left jobs before and this is almost always the worst part, but this makes it extra hard. She’ll still be here so I can still go chat with her and hang out and will be seeing her around, but it’s just hard to voluntarily leave the best boss I’ve ever had! But who knows, this may turn out to be the best job I’ve ever had 🙂 I don’t really know what I’m looking for in posting this, except maybe just to get my feelings out there! 😛
