Leaving the Rat-Race?

Post  RUSS74GHIA on Mon Aug 05, 2013 5:52 am

After 14 years of not being appreciated in banking I've decided to call it quits and look for something else.

I've just been interviewed for a job as a mechanic at a Type2 restoration specialist. The interview/tour took 3 1/2 hours and they've asked me back for a half-day trial next Saturday, eek. Fingers crossed!

Thanks for asking.

I had to cancel. After carefully doing my sums I came to the conclusion that I couldn't really take a hit of what would have been about 40% of my annual salary.

One thing I had to consider is that I'll probably be made redundant at the end of next year, which might provide a large enough chunk of severance to enable me to postpone this decision and try again in 2015.

It was a tough call.

Russ.
