When I read the job description, my heart sank. It fit my current description to a letter. It would have been silly for me not to send in my resume. I dragged my feet for a few days. I worked on my resume and cover letter for hours, just procrastinating really. And finally on Sunday, I submitted them, hoping deep down that they had already found someone. I include in my cover letter: My husband and I are moving. This alone is the reason I’m thinking of leaving my current job.
Monday morning, and I get the call. “You’re just what we’re looking for! We were just about to offer the job to someone else, but then we saw your resume….” Shoot. One day too early.
I’m a creature of habit. There. I said it. I like growing roots. I like stability. I’m 27 years old, and I’ve lived in 3 houses in two different towns. I settle in.
I don’t feel ready to leave. But it feels inevitable.
