Good news. I have a new job, starting next month. It's a 33% pay increase, with extra vacation. Different kind of work too, hoping I'll enjoy it more. What's more, my wife works in the same building.

And yet, I handed in my 2 weeks notice to my boss today (who, by the way, is a nice guy). He tried to negotiate a little bit, and I could tell he was surprised. I think he took it personally, and was upset that (if I was dissatisfied with my job) I hadn't come to him sooner. There were plenty of other positions in the company, he was already negotiating a mid-year raise for me given my performance, etc. So he (I think unintentionally) guilt-tripped me, and now I feel like crap.

yaay.

speed its easy to feel that way and I'm sorry its putting the damper on your celebration. Talk to your boss tomorrow and make sure he/she knows its got nothing to do with them. If they are a good person which I'm sure they are they'll put aside their hurt and be happy for you. I am so glad for you getting such a whopper increase and increase in pto. Woo hoo!

Congrats, speedchuck! :yay:

I echo juliets's sentiment. I've also been in your exact position before, speed. Sometimes it's difficult not to take things personally from either perspective, but most sensible employees and employers rationally know otherwise. This is especially true if the other person in the arrangement makes a sincere enough effort to emphasize that fact.

Just finished writing my personal statement. I'm letting it sit for a day so I can reflect and review and review and review before I officially submit any applications. But the heavy lifting is done. My brain is melted.

Naturally I woke up this morning and felt like the whole thing needed to be tweaked.

I'm done again and this time I feel downright confident. And also a little terrified.

500 word limit, so the challenge is just squeezing everything in there.

I sold my first homemade soap... im fairly excited about it. Probably going to invest more time into this & make it a daily hobby activity, valentine's is next month & that would be a well productive idea planning.

So today and yesterday were big days for me in terms of finding out assistant professor job market stuff.

I applied to 12 universities over the holidays. Since the Spring 2018 semester began, I have received phone interviews with 3 of those universities.

I now have campus visits/interviews with 2 of those 3, and for the third one I am a first alternate (which means I will be interviewed in the event that at least one of the candidates falls through).

I'm definitely pretty stoked about all of this, but also suddenly a lot more nervous.
