    Got a new role

    I am now a systems officer, which means I will be looking after a VLE called blackboard

    Still technical as I will be resolving issues but in a slightly different direction.

    We will see where it takes me

    Yeah, extra pay. One of the reasons I went for it to be fair, that and its going to be a bit more challenging. I think I am getting stale here

    Awesome!

    Have you handed in your resignation yet?

    If so, what was your boss' reaction? Did he say anything?

    Not told him yet

    I am waiting for confirmation in writing first......just in case ha ha.

    If he matches the wage and the grade I would probably stay, but he wont

    But if he says he will match the pay etc.

    He could be lying to keep you.

    Congrats mate, and yeah do nothing until you get it in writting. Upon joining my current employer I made it clear I wont be handing in my notice until I get confirmation in writing, a nod and a handshake means nothing.

    So told him and handed in my notice, didnt get much of a response, which I expected.

    I have about a month left where I am, one week of that will be to the new guy. He will need to hit the ground running
