OMG, this morning, boss (who had no idea was interviewing), came up to me and offered a lateral type of move into something really great sounding.  Gah!!!  Had to tell him about this interviewing I have been doing though.  So now, so torn.  MY HEAD HURTS!! Guess I will see if/what they offer me next week.

Ahh, nevermind, decision was made for me, didn't get the job in the end!!! Wonder if my pay scale put them off, said I performed quite well in interview, but found someone with more 'relevant' experience. Oh well. Nice to be considered anyways.

On the bright side, you don't have a tough decision to make.  And now you can focus on the new opportunity at your existing job, right?  :)

Exactly!  :) I'd be relieved, I think, if I were in your position PB!   :)

Bummer PB.  But I'm soooo glad you already have a new position in your back pocket.  You do need out of your current situation.   :D

I'm one week into this new role and I'm quite pleased actually that I didn't get the other job. This one it's full of everything I have been wanting.  Hard and exciting interesting and high profile projects that make great use of my skills.  Win ,win, win.
