    I had the best day at work on Friday... I went in and quit. Not that I hated my job, but I had a great job offer presented to me and I couldn't pass it up. I am currently working in a manufacturing setting and now I'll be moving to a straight engineering setting...and a 10K raise doesn't hurt.

    congrats....i'm currently in a Manufacturing Tech position and was thinking about trying out for the Engineering Tech position but by future goal is set in another type of work so i figure i'll just stay where i'm at.


    and yeah, a 10K raise really doesn't hurt, just dont go too crazy with it.

    That's awesome for you man. Congradulations!

    The place I'm working at now I was originally a contract artist for them. Since they weren't hiring for permenant positions, I looked elsewhere for a salary+ benefits job. I found one, and told the place I was contracting for that I was going to be leaving them for a permenant position. Later that day the place I was contracting for made an offer for a permanant position AND at a higher salary then the other place was going to give me. I stayed, and it was truly a great day.

    PUT HALF OF YOUR RAISE INTO AN IRA.

    Also, big ups, guy. Life's a journey--making progress on it is always a good thing.
