Plusses on the new job: better opportunity for promotion without a higher degree, and it's something she's wanted to do forever.Based on TheWife's experience, I'm making my own career plans. First, TheWife needs to get promoted 2 or 3 times, until she's raking in the really big bucks. Then, I'll just retire and start working on all of those projects that keep piling up (the sci-fi novel, etsy & ebay selling, photography, gardening, geocaching, surfing the internet, and napping). Personally, I think it's an excellent plan!
Minusses on the new job: it's a lateral-ish move, and there's no extra money, but she'll have to wear better clothes to work. And there'll be some travel which is more of a negative for me than for her. If this had happened a year ago (with an infant in the house), I'd have gone into complete panic mode.
Congrats to TheWife!
The big news this week is that TheWife has accepted a different job at Head Monk Pharma. Starting November 26th, she'll be working in the Clinical Research department. Not sure of the actual title, but she'll basically be a Clinical Research Associate (althought it might be Associate or Assistant or something).
