...quits her job at the courthouse where I also used to work last year. When we got hired, she was asked if she is going to stay. She's got a teaching degree and they are skeptical about her wanting to go back to teaching once school started. She said she have every bit of intention of staying forever. So when I received the news that she is quitting, I talked to her. She said she was inspired how I was able to get a much better paying job. She got a job to lead a new department at a car dealership here in our town and from the sound of it, it beats the pay and benefits being provided by the state. I felt a little sad and happy for her. She and her husband just bought a house and I know that every little bit of extra money will help. But she said that the boss was mad at her, and even told her that she's making a big mistake.

Everybody has the right to decide what is best for their careers so long as you do not violate any contracts.

That's is true. Unfortunately growth in that department is really almost nonexistent.

@Raine38 then it's time to leave if there are opportunities for greener pastures

@louievill I agree. Eventually we are the ones responsible for our own well being.

So do I. When I left, it was a very good one and I was told if I changed my mind, I should re-apply to my old post. It breaks my heart that someone as nice as she did not get the same reception.
