    2 Weeks Left

    Just thought i would let anyone who is interested that about 2 or 3 weeks ago i had an interview for a university local to myself for position of IT Tech and i had been offered the job.
    My school knows and i have handed my resignation in and all the contract forms are all signed and ready for me to start on the 16th June.

    I am very excited and kind of sad at the same time, i have been working in my school for nearly 4 years now, i liked the job but as you all know schools and IT have there issues and i have wanted to get out.

    This job pay is far greater for roughly the same amount of work. But again thats schools for you.

    I guess i will be nervous about everything being different but thats life.

    I will still be on here as often as possible. Wish me luck.

    Well done mate, I know you had a load of grief at your old place from reading on here. I'm sure you'll love your new role. Good luck and don't be a stranger

    Congrats on the new job, sure you'll like it. The best thing about working at a College/Uni is the team that you work in

    Sweet work mate. I felt the same way coming here from another school after six years. Believe me though the change alone is worth it.

    Have fun!

    Well Done. Congrats and Good Luck.
    Have you posted a Heads Up on your old job in the jobs forum? or would you not recommend it...?

    Thanks everyone, i am looking forward to working as part of a team who have similar interests.

    I know it is a bigger step up but i think if i can survive here as i have i should be ok there.

    Of course i will still be on here, my future colleagues may already be on here. If not i will definitely let them know.
