Career Opportunity Arose!

I haven't been on here in a long time! I finally got the call for an interview regarding a Director level role in my field. I couldn't be more thrilled!!!!! The first interview is with HR, so that's just the initial screening before I can talk to the hiring managers. I had begun applying in January and received only one response that did not work out. This is the second response I've received in several months. AND, it's with a Web design company, just the type of company I've wanted to work for, so the role looks like a perfect fit!

IF I can finally leave my company, I would be beyond ecstatic. My boss continues to undermine me at work because he fears I could take his job, so he's trying hard to keep me from rising in position by lying to the CEO about my achievements. I began documenting my achievements with HR as a result, but it's essentially a no-win situation. My CEO really likes me and wants to see my rise, but my boss hates me because I'm very good at what I do. And he's the one who will keep me from rising, so I have no choice but to leave. I am not disappointed though, and I am more than happy to leave this company. They run things a-s-s-back-wards, they have very poor leadership, and they place people in management positions who don't belong in those positions. I am more than happy to move on after two years of service. 

So, I have to kick butt and get this job offer! This would also be a huge increase in salary, which I really want and need right about now. Yay!!!

So sorry to hear that.

Still rooting for you though! 

Thanks so much!!! It turns out they wanted someone who would move to Seattle, and I don't want to live in Seattle! And it was more of a sales role, and I have little sales experience in my field  Still a disappointment.
