So, 2 weeks ago today, I gave my 2 weeks notice at work. My last day is April 15th (so the 13th really).
From the announcement email that went out to staff from the CEO.
It is with a sense of deep regret that I have accepted effective April 15th, 2007 the resignation of Mike Creuzer, Webmaster. Mike has been an influential member of our RAGFL staff and we wish him the very best in his new endeavor in Tampa as a software programmer for iMapp. Mike has agreed to do his best on the projects he has started and we are grateful for the contribution he has made in making www.R-World.com the “go to” resource for our members. Please join me in wishing him the best of luck on his journey. Thank you Mike for all that you have done.
I am going to work for iMapp in Tampa as the email says. They are a vendor for RAGFL (The Realtor Association of Greater Fort Laduerdale), so it was kinda a touchy situation, a company hiring one of their larger client’s employees. That is part of my extra long notice. I will be in Fort Lauderdale for probably another 2 months working on and learning one of the products that iMapp sells. And then it’s packing my bags and finding a new place to make a mess of in Tampa.
I am going to be doing primarily programming, which I have slowly drifted towards really liking in my time at RAGFL. I should be able to take my knowledge and experience from RAGFL and bring a lot of insight and skill to iMapp. I am excited about the new opportunities!
My new job is significantly closer to Katie, my girlfriend. I will only be 25 miles away from here she lives. She works halfway between where she lives and where I will live, so that will be a lot more convenient. I must say, I had never had a relationship that turned into a long distance relationship work out. I am really hoping that this long distance relationship holds together once it isn’t long distance anymore. Another bonus with the new job is that, well… Lets just say I will be able to dig myself out of the hole a whole heck of a lot faster.
It is really tough though. Staying focused at my old job when I really want to get started with the new one. I am working on some pretty cool stuff, so that hopefully if I get it all done the way I want it to be, I go out with a bang.
