Default Cross your fingers for me!

Hey everyone,

I haven't been real happy with the work I've been doing lately and have been looking for something else within the company. (Background: this is a huge company developing many different products, aka programs, and people move around to different programs all the time.) Well, I got a heads-up about a job in a different program, doing something more along the lines of what I want to do. I am about to schedule a meeting with my functional manager (hopefully he'll be available before I leave!) so I can discuss it with him. Wish me luck!

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Good luck, Michelle. When I saw your posting I thought about how fortunate some of us are to be retired & out of the rat race. As for those of you who aren't, all I can say is go for it and take no prisoners! On the good news side, it looks like your countdown clock is now corrected. Mine is still 3 days off.

Thanks, Jack. I actually fudged the date on my countdown clock to fix it.

Meeting is at 2:00... I'm actually excited because I'm so unhappy with my current work situation. I sure hope this fixes it! *holding breath, crossing fingers and toes*

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Thanks everyone. Meeting went well. My functional manager was sooo helpful. I may not go for the particular job I saw, but my days on this program are definitely numbered and he'll help me find something different I'll enjoy better. Yay!

My next hurdle will be telling my supervisor about my impending move... he will not be happy.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Hoping for the best for you Michelle. Not liking your job is really rotten.

Good luck and I'm hoping, wishing real hard for you! If something comes along you think you'll like better, go for it, don't hesitate!

I know how not liking what you're doing anymore feels and that is not a good thing at all!
The very reason I took early retirement!

There's nothing worse than hating your job - believe me, I know, but there's also nothing better than LOVING your job, and super co-workers, which is where I am after many years of struggling elsewhere. Best of luck Michelle, I hope you find what you're looking for!

Good luck Michelle. The problem with being in the rat race is even if you win you're still a rat. I think I've picked up a few first place finishes myself. <wink>

Regards,
Thomas

Marc - been there, done that already this year! Everyone is saying that in next year's video they'll have to put something about "remember, it is unethical to shoot your coworkers." Although apparently they already did everything they could to keep that guy from going nuts and nothing worked. What a senseless tragedy.

Cheers,
Michelle B.
