I have been tossing around the possibility of changing jobs recently and have been sending out my resume to local businesses that have positions available in my line of work. I just got off the phone with a potential new employer and have set up an interview for Thursday evening after I get out of my current job. I'm excited because the aspects of the position that I am interviewing for, is right up my alley. Multi-tasking, computer work, management, etc. While there will be a longer commute (35-45 minutes) than my current commute (15-20 minutes), the pay is greater than the measly peanuts that I'm making now.
After discussing the position and getting details on salary ranges (mid/high 30k - low 40k yearly), it would be a giant step in the right direction for me. Not to mention, my wallet, household bills, wedding bills, FI, DS, and dogs would thank me. I would be able to help out MORE and still have money left over...rather than living pay check to paycheck, pinching every penny that I bring in. I'm sure I'd still be a penny pincher, but still...it would be nice to see money, still in the bank, 2 days after pay day.
Only worry I have is this - I didn't disclose that I am in getting married in 7 months. It really isn't any of their business until they actually offer me a job. I did say that I had taken the first week of September off (FI is having his wisdom teeth removed), but that would only help THEM if they offer me the job because then I wouldn't have to take the full week off....just one day for his surgery. I'm sure they'll ask if I have any future dates that I would need to take off for....but March is 7 months away. Do I disclose that now or wait? Part of me thinks it should be mentioned since, even though we're not going on a honeymoon, I am taking a partial day on Thursday, and the entire day the Friday before and possibly the Monday after the wedding.
Is it ok to change jobs 7 months from our wedding day? Is it a wise move or something I should stay away from? I mean, this opportunity may not present itself later down the line......
