@SummerGirl21:  Just say that you had an amazing opportunity come up and that while you appreciate the experience you’ve had at [insert current workplace], you must take the new job.  I think the ladies will be understanding.  You shouldn’t be harrassed by the doctors, seriously–that’s incredibly unprofessional if they do so.

Don’t let those emotions cloud your judgement for a better life and future. True friends will be with you regarldess or job or location 🙂

I know its not an easy thing, but you will look back and this challenge will be a blip in time.

What field are you in?

It’s always a little awkward when you leave a job, but anyone will realistically understand that if there’s more money and a better opportunity elsewhere, you have to take it. Darling Husband is going through the same thing at his work right now; while his boss was disappointed and even gave him a counter-offer, she told him she respects his decision and he will be missed. I’m sure you’ll find the same sort of situation. PPs are also right that you don’t have to tell them you have been looking for a new job; tell them the opportunity arose and you just couldn’t turn it down. Good luck!

@SummerGirl21: congrats on the new job! I know it could be awkward, especially with the concerns you listed about the other ladies, but don’t let that stop you. They might not show you the same consideration if they were the ones leaving for a new job. 🙂

I totally get you..when I left my old job for my current job, it was super awkward. And yes, the doctors I worked with acted like huge babies, but really, Im making 25% more money at my new job and they didnt counter offer me, so I said buh bye.

You know….you gotta do what works best for your career. I learned that through trial and error. No one else will worry about you and you have to drive your own career. It may be painful for all but within a month of quitting your job, no one will think twice about you leaving.
