To recap, in case you haven't been paying attention: a little over a year ago I started a job as an Administrative Assistant to a Wealth Management Advisor with a company I'll refer to as Southeastern Shareholders. I accepted the position because my temporary gig at Dannon was coming to an end, I didn't want to have to collect unemployment, and I figured it could be good for me. I should have listened to my misgivings. Less than four months later, I was certain I wanted out.

My boss is out of the office again today, so I won't be giving my notice until tomorrow, at least. I want to do it in person; I feel it's the right thing to do. If I'm not able to do it face-to-face by Monday, I suppose I'll just have to do it over the phone.

He's actually working on my performace review right now, supposedly. He's already postponed our review meeting twice, because he wants to "do it right." Too little, too late. In my observation, his desire to "do it right" prevents him from getting anything done at all. Also, his personal life keeps getting in the way of him accomplishing anything. A few months back, I didn't see him for two and a half weeks because he took his car apart and couldn't get it back together again.

I've been here a year, and I haven't been fully trained. I don't feel confident in my position, and I'm still not entirely clear on what my duties actually are. Bossman's been claiming for months that he's getting his act together, but it has yet to happen. So when a friend of mine posted on Facebook that her mother's company was hiring for office help, I jumped at the opportunity.

The company is a reseller of commercial/large format printers and such. They were looking for someone with my exact experience and skill-set. I e-mailed my friends mother, she requested my resume, I sent it, we scheduled an interview for this past Monday, and I was hired yesterday. I'll be starting out with basic customer service, and then moving on to purchasing and invoicing.

I'm really very excited about this new opportunity. I think I'll be a really good fit for this position, and that I'll be happy to stay with the company long-term.

My only concern right now is that my boss is going to get super-cranky about my leaving. He seems to take it really personally when his assistants move on to other things, and he's currently under the impression that I'm definitely not going anywhere. Oh, well. I'm not responsible for his feelings, and I have to do what's right for me.

I do hope he comes in to the office tomorrow, so I can get this over with.

(Coming soon: a post about mine and Rich's recent vacation, and the kitties!)
