For those who don't know, last week I was offered a Database Administrator job in the Pittsburgh area, and I decided to leave my current position for that new job. Now halfway through my two-weeks notice period, I've been having a very interesting experience. I've only been at this job for a year and a half, and I'm amazed at the amount of knowledge I have to impart on those I'm leaving behind. It was only 7 months ago that I was on the getting all this extra info as my supervisor left for another job, but this is much different for me this time since I am passing on the information.
Some of the things have become so routine, I almost forget I do them. Other things come up so rarely that I can barely remember how to do them. I'm going over everything I can think of, but I know I'm going to forget something.
However, my mind keeps drifting to the fact that I am moving on, and how I look forward to it. My time here has been a great experience as I've learned a lot and improved myself as a worker by leaps and bounds, but I'm ready to do more that is inline with my career goals, and that's what the new job will give me the chance to do.
Well, I'll just keep the countdown timer rolling in the meantime…7 days and counting.
