I have some big news today...yesterday I accepted a new position within my current company.  I am not sure how long the transition period will be, but I am hopeful it will be short so I can get started sooner than later!

I have been at my company for over 5 years.  I started off as a temp-to-hire with a staffing agency and was luckily hired on full-time once a new position was open.  About six months after, I moved over to Finance in accounting.  I have been there ever since.    

My current group is like a little family.  It is always hard to make a change, but especially so when you work with a great group of people.  The good thing is that I should be working with them somewhat in my new position.  And they will all just be a floor down, so I can always go visit.  

I am so excited for a new opportunity, though.  New people, new work, lots of learning...

I am very nervous, too.  There are always those thoughts, like, will I do a good job, will I be able to do the work I am given well?  I don't want to disappoint my new group!

I was lucky enough to have lots of support from my loved ones.  I don't know how many times I brought up the job situation, but they were always there to listen.  Thank you!!!

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind...interviews, jobs offers and big decisions.  It has been STRESSFUL!  However, now it is all over and I can't wait for this next chapter.
