A friend and colleague of mine is leaving the construction program I work on and I’ve decided to pursue his soon-to-be former position. It has a much higher pay, more responsibilities, and more prestige than my current position. It is highly unlike me to be writing about this on here, but I’m long past the person who keeps his head down and doesn’t want to share his goals and dreams.
I love my job, and the worst thing that could happen is for me to remain in my current position. So I really have nothing to lose. So I stopped making my usually cost/benefit analysis and decided to just bite the bullet and send my company and email that this opportunity is coming up and that I’d like for them to propose me to the client for the new position.
So I’m going for it and I’m putting it out there.
