In my department at the bank we recently had an employee leave to attend law school. He was going to move to a different town so his position came available. It was a little bit of a different position and it was one that was dealing in a different area of international banking than I was currently. So I jumped at the chance for a better job. And they snatched me up! I didn't even have to apply. They just moved me into that position and posted my job. I was so stoked. After everything I dealt with at my previous job and not feeling appreciated at all it was a welcome change. When I told my supervisor that I was interested in the position she was so excited and told me how pleased they were with how quickly I picked up on my job and how they thought I would fit well in the new position and how if I moved into that position it opened up an easier route for promotions. So really this was a no-brainer. I even threw in how I would really like it if I could have a schedule where I worked 7:45-4:45 instead of 8-5 for carpooling and picking up Leo. And they agreed! So this is definitely a win in my book! Things are looking up!
