in my stomach. I have been interviewing for a new position and I just got a call to expect an offer tomorrow. It would be a promotion, a shorter commute, a stimulating job, and, I expect, a good deal more money, but I am a bit nervous now that I will have to make a decision. Currently, I am in a very stable job that I have no chance of losing. Its reasonably interesting, and I have been over the learning curve for some time, so I don't have to try too hard to do OK. However, the pay is under my market value and the promotion opportunities are less than stellar. I also find that I am in danger of the hobgoblin of my career (and life): I am getting bored. In the past, when I have gotten bored with a job, I have done, shall we say, less than my best work. Not a good outcome for me or my employer.On the flip side, going to a new place would mean a fair bit of hard work, since I would have to come up to speed quickly with a new culture, boss, job, etc. It would also entail more risk than my current position, since the new employer is in less of an economic fortress.Hopefully, they will put together an offer that will make the choice pretty much a no-brainer. In the mean time I will be fretting, I suppose, given that I am a natural born worrier (in that I can't easily let go of something important that is under consideration).
