Going to apply for a new job!

August 6th, 2014 at 07:42 pm

So I like my job enough, and I make good money (about $69K)but I don't have enough work to do and there are a lot of aspects of it that just don't interest me. I look at my boss and can't imagine ever wanting her job - so much tedious & boring work. She's in her early 60's, so it's extremely likely I could have her job when she retires if I stick around.

I've been with the same hospital system for almost 9 years now, and 2 years ago I left being the lab supervisor to go to infection control. So a few months ago, my old boss resigned from her position. After a lot of thinking, I have decided to apply for her job. The lab director seems really excited that I have shown interest. HR can't talk to me about the salary range until I officially apply, and the job just got posted online, so I will apply and then see what they say!

If it is less than I make now, then I will just stick to what I'm doing. I have a lot of flexibility (good to have with 2 young kids) and I have a big office all to myself where I can do whatever I want to when I don't have a lot of work to do. But I am just not all that stimulated by the work. It's by no means a bad job to have, but microbiology is my first love! Smile

Wish me luck and let's hope the salary is much more!!
