Should job promotions suck?
Am I the only one who dreads a promotion?
Its apparently time for me to move up the ladder but I'm not sure I even want to. There is a job open, I've been groomed for it, I have my boss's blessing, it pays more than what I make now, its great resume candy, its the next logical step in my career, ect.
But, Im not looking forward to it at all. Im pretty comfortable doing what Im doing, life is pretty easy as it is and I dont think I want to take on the BS of a new position right now (alot of BS in this new position compared to the present one), although now is probably the best time to do it.
I've done alot of different jobs in my life and Ive regularly and eagerly taken on challenges with open arms in the past, Ive actually thrived on challenge. For some reason, I just dont want it right now. I feel guilty about that because I should be reaching for better opportunities and this is definately a better opportunity that will open up alot of possibilities in the future. In this economy, does a sane person turn down opportunities when they knock?
Anyone have any promotion stories, good or bad?
