I am quitting my full time job as a graphic designer with more than 3 years experience with this company. They snatched me up when I was still in college because they were in need of a designer. It has been a good job, however, since I have been working full time, I have not been going to school. I tried to go to school and work full time there, but my grades were so bad, that I had to drop the classes. I only have 1 full load semester left, 15 credits. I am going to put my 2 weeks in at the end of the year, and have my last day be right before my birthday, January 13th. The company has no idea I am quitting, and this is going to be like stabbing a knife in their heart. I literally ran the prepress department and nobody else knows how to do my job, without training. This is going to be a huge lifestyle change for me, as my income will be dropping by half. I hope to find an evening part time job once school kicks in
No more modding, no more eating out, no more casual spending. Oh well, as long as I get my degree I (and my parents and girlfriend, and future employer) will be happy. I really hope the PA sells soon, as some of that money will help feed me for the next 5 months. Once graduated, I plan to look for a higher paying job in a larger company that I can actually advance in. The company I am with now, has gave me a $.50 raise in the 3+ years I have been there. Wish me luck!
