I was going to write about this earlier today, but I was being a coward. I needed to tell my current boss that I was going to be resigning from my full-time position, and I was afraid to do that. I like my current job, and I feel bad about leaving. But sometimes opportunities come along that can't be ignored.
I have now talked to my current boss, so I can post this here.
Last week, the company that I work for part time made me a very generous offer to come to work for them full time. Not only that, they offered me the position of Director of Information Technology. For now, it's mostly a title because the company is very small. It's so small that I'll have a title and still be writing and testing software on a regular basis.
But, it is an exciting opportunity - the kind of offer that doesn't come along very often. Even with a shaky economy, I'm going to take the job and see what happens.
It's exciting and scary at the same time. But, it's also a small company of very smart and focused people, and I'm looking forward to working with them full time.
