I know I've been away from here lately and I can't really post much on FB yet until details are finalized. I had been in a state of depression due to my current job. We've gone from 100+ people 3 years ago, now to about 6. Three people quit and their last day was this week. All of our IT and development talent are gone. They don't seem to care about who's left, won't tell us anything, promising us "details to come", etc. It's all a bunch of BS. I feel bad for my clients who are unaware of whats going on and my fellow employees that have decided to stick it out until the bitter end. But two weeks ago, I submitted my resume' to a very large nationwide bank. I got a call a few days after submission for an interview. Interview went amazingly well. Everything I do currently, is what they're looking for, for the position they're trying to fill. The lady to interviewed me and I got along SO well, laughing and joking by the end of the interview. In fact, it didn't feel like the typical interview. The next day I had a call from the recruiter and asked when I could start. I'm going through all the typical background checks, employment and address verification, finger printing, etc. I should have the final word that everything checked out ok by end of week or next Monday. I'm already going through the onboarding process. I haven't turned in my two weeks until the checks come back ok and they tell me to turn in my two weeks to my current employeer. Five months of serious depression, almost gone in an instant. The company has the most amazing benefits package that I've ever seen. The two biggest things is that I got a nice pay increase and I get to work from home! Two things I honestly didn't expect, especially being able to work from hom. They're very big on the work vs home/life and balancing the two. Now I just sit and bite my nails until the background checks come back as OK. Waiting is killing me. Anyhoo....felt like it was a reason to come back to the forum and share.
