I only vaguely mentioned that I interviewed for another job last week. The interview lasted about two hours and I left feeling really good about it. I think it would be a job where I could be creative and autonomous, and have lots of patient interaction witout the fear of bathing myself (or any future babies) in chemicals. Not to mention mucho denaro (and supremely better benefits packages), at least compared to what I'm being paid now.
So now I'm waiting to hear back from them. The Hater and I are partial and think they should hire me. We think I'd be wonderful. But like I said, we're partial.
Waiting. And trying not to be too excited... but, for the record, if I were offered this position it would be a good move to a place that would encourage me to grow, give me options for further rungs up the ladder. It would also play into all of the survivor stuff I'd like to do in conjunction with LAF. Essentially I could have my cake and eat it, too.
Which brings me to the plot twist...
Yesterday at work my boss (who knew I was going to interview for the other job because I wasn't about to lie to her) pulled me into the hall and asked me if I would want to stay with my current company if she gave me her job. Management. She said she didn't want to retire, but she would be willing to swap with me and work full time on the floor. I told her I'd have to talk to The Hater about it, but that I would consider it.
Pre c-bomb I know I would have jumped on this opportunity. It's what I wanted to do. The Hater and I talked about it, and there's really no question... I'm really hoping to hear back from the other people this week with an offer. If it doesn't work out, I'll probably take the nurse manager job.
Either way it spells big changes for us this Spring... stay tuned as the story unfolds.
