Closing the door on the past

I've just phoned through my decision. We will have a meeting on Tuesday to hammer out the details, but to all intents and purposes, I am no longer an HP employee.

Well, it can't be any worse than my earlier career decisions...can it?

Well being an archaeologist seems like a mighty fine career decision to me!

But I'm not working in archaeology any more, am I? And before you ask: realistically, I can't see myself returning to it.

No I know, but you said none of your earlier career choices were good, and personally I think that was a great choice.

Now that you have taken action, things will become clearer and easier to sort out, so well done you: )

I see your mood is "relieved". Moving on to the future, good for you. You are brave and strong and good things are in your future. (I know, I sound like a fortune cookie or something.)

Just a random thought from out of no where: Have you ever thought about being a reporter for public radio?

Well done on making your decision - I think you have done the right thing, whichever of the two 'leave' options you took.

When I rang the HR representative, she was in the car; therefore we didn't get down to the nitty-gritty. I will be going for the outplacement option though, unless I change my mind between now and Tuesday.

Good for you. Completely sure you're doing the right thing, but I guess that didn't make the deciding any easier, but hopefully now it's a done deal, you'll be feeling like a loads been lifted.

We must drink a nice glass of bubbles to your bright new future at the weekend :)

Good for you for choosing to move forward! You're a smart chic and I'm sure you'll find something better in no time. *hugs*

Thanks for the vote of confidence...but I'm sure you're right: I will find something else. Don't know why I was dragging my feet over this decision so long...

Good for you! Outplacement will broaden your mind and help you find out what you really want to do...
May I suggest this site if you are allowed to pick your own outplacement professionals?

And yes, a friend of mine works there...

Bedankt voor de tip! Ik weet nog niet of mij de keuze gelaten zal worden, maar ik zal het zeker in overweging nemen als HP ermee instemt.

Exactly. I may be about to commit the biggest mistake in my career, but...what else can I do?
