Tendered my resignation this morning, even though I have yet to get the offer letter from the other side. I know, to be on the safe side, I should be getting the offer letter first, but I don't know why I'm so anxious to throw the letter today. My heart says, "yes, throw it throw it!". So I'm just following my heart.
My boss was rather calm & cool when I handed the letter the her. Guess she has expected this to happen. Just one word "OK", not more not less. I'm abit dissapointed though, because I expect a bigger reaction, after 10 years plus of working under the same roof. Oh well, that will be good also as I don't have to waste time explaining.
I was called into the discussion after about an hour. I was asked whether I can allow her some space for negotiation. However, I told her my decision is final & I'm moving forward. She accepted that & wish me all the best.
Rough road ahead
I felt happier after tendering. But right now, thinking of what awaits me ahead is making me a bit worry & tense. My future boss is giving me a chance to serve the new company, even though I have no hands on or experience in few of the their systems. I just feel that, I cannot let him down & I need to buck up by using all the time I have now to enrich my knowledge. He must have a good impression of me. He must acknowledge that, he has employed the right person for the job. I must not let him down.
