I have worked two jobs in my life. The last job I had I worked almost 35 years and did every task. Even so much, my boss compares my giving notice to basically amputating his right arm. I knew he relied on me for many things but he never stated or compensated.
Tomorrow I start training for my new job at the University of Oregon. My official full time start date isn’t till mid August.
I am embracing this new challenge but am also very nervous.
I am not going into the field I’ve been working hard in school for. With one year left at school I’m hoping that being a UO employee will allow me to make a lateral move or even work part time doing what I want to do.
