I packed up all of the company devices and stacked them right by the front door as I await shipping information to return everything to the office. Two weeks ago, the team and I sent our departure reminiscent emails and ended them with contact information to keep in touch. I shared two years with an amazing team. It was quite the bittersweet moment, but it really made this business decision easier to accept. I’m beyond grateful, but it’s time to move on.
I’ve been reorganizing and putting some of the final touches on my mom cave/home office these past few days as tomorrow starts a new adventure. After 3 interview rounds and presenting a counteroffer, I accepted an offer to work for a company as a 100% remote employee. I’ll essentially be doing the same type of work with a few variations here and there but I’ll be in a completely different industry from oil and gas. I’m transitioning into healthcare analytics (a goal of mine) and I’m excited to see what awaits.
It’s so funny how everything worked out. It’s been a beautiful journey seeing how everything worked out just as I had faith it would. I turned down an offer in January due to a company’s maternity leave policy and stayed with my current company at the time. After uncertainty became the buzz around the office, I interviewed with another company to work as a business analyst, received an offer, but then the position was put on hold because they weren’t necessarily equipped to support remote work during this pandemic. And now, I’ve been presented with an offer to work for a company that allows 100% remote work — an ultimate goal of mine since 2016.
My faith in God is something serious. And because of my faith, I put my complete trust in knowing that things will work out. They always do. They always will.
And they did.
