Today is my last day at Sun Life. I was recently offered a new job at a local pharmaceutical company, and I took it.
The whole thing was unexpected and happened so fast. I heard about the position, sent in my resume and had an interview just a couple days later. The interview went very well, despite the fact I went in totally unprepared. I didn’t dress up, didn’t even shave that day, and basically just winged it. Surprisingly, it seemed like everything I said was the right thing to say. I left the interview with a feeling they would offer me the job, but also thinking they wouldn’t offer me the compensation I was looking for. I was surprised when they made a very competitive offer.
I had just one day to consider everything before giving them an answer. It was a really tough decision, but in the end I realized making the move would be in my best interest, so I accepted the offer and gave Sun Life my two weeks notice.
It’s a bit of a sad day, saying goodbye to all my friends and coworkers. But it’s the start of something new, and I’m looking forward to that.
