Ok, as previously stated, Company C offered me a position. I did in fact decide to go for it. While I’ll be making slightly less then my previous job, I think I’ll enjoy the opportunity to learn new technologies and to finally walk away from end user support. Also, a major bonus is that the position is only 4 and a half miles from my house. I will save a significant amount money in commute costs over the year. This will more then help to offset the salary difference.
I am glad to be done with the job search. As long as this company is a good one, I plan on settling with them for a long haul. They provide incentive for obtaining industry certifications, so that will help to raise the salary significantly.
Thanks to those who prayed. I will let you know how the first few weeks work out. I start after Thanksgiving.
