Today I Resigned...

After 2 years with Hudson I bid farewell to take on an opportunity as a Graduate Recruitment Coordinator/HR for Sydney & Canberra with an international Law firm.

In 4 weeks I will be Here! Lunch anyone?

---------------------------------------

The news has just been broken to my team and a few people burst out crying, I knew this was going to be hard...really mixed feelings, excited and happy but so sad at the same time.

Welcome to the city! You can even see my building in that photo! *points to the donut* Congrads on the new position!

Vivien said...

whaaat you've been keeping this a secret for how long!?

CONGRATULATIONS!! Remember to bring along your glass jar to put the interviewee-sweets in :p

PiCkLeS said...

matty: !!!! indeed!

Ken: I guess that it would be a bit weird to ball your eyes out if a guy left? It was really sad!! and one of the girls kept walking up to me and just rubbing my back..which was a little weird.

Tash: drinks it is!!

Riss: Thank you! My core hours have been reduced by 7.5 hours a week! and i've cut travel time by 10 hours a week? and for all this they pay me more! After some tough years it's a big relief...

Lils: you gotta come meet me for lunch then =P

Viv: hahha you've actually helped me more than you know. Remember that time i was asking you about law firms and you sent me the unsw link? the site gave me a great summary of who the players were and i did all my research from there.

and on the downside you'll have to deal with lawyers and law students all day!!! hahaha..ok im just kidding =P
that's awesome em..congrats!!

M1NG said...

congrats emo!

thats just like next door to me now...

DJ Ho said...

for some reason i think you'll suddenly have a lot of friends studying law.........

On the flipside, you'll have to deal with people that are built for arguing and examining fine detail (note: anal).

I'm not sure what lawfirm it is, but I know the HR people in Deacons and Clutz. Or if you are going to Corrs, I've got a few mates there as well.

Bosco said...

Wow... awesome, it's great that you've made the decision after all the difficulties. And now, you're in the city like you've always wanted to be. yeeh.

Hope it all goes well. That's Circular Quay right? that's pretty close to me.

petals said...

When do you start Em?

I'm across the road from Lil's donut...but i cant decipher which is my building in the picture! *LoL*

Mind you we'd have to do lunch soon, cos I'm moving to the Ernst & Young building at the end of February.

Dianna said...

to be honest, at first, for a nanosecond, I thought it was melbourne.
hehehehhee *blush*

yui said...

is that the gateway building?

lil_lamies said...

good on you ems... im so happy for you. You got my email right?

PiCkLeS said...

Cynth: You must let me in on the secret world of law students!

Mingo: didn't you know that I moved to the city just so I could hassel you all day long?

Ho: Recruitment has fine tuned me for arguing.

Bosco: don't be a stranger if you see me in the street, cos i might not recognise you without a towel around your head.

Christine: 13th Feb. remember that day that you saw me on the train looking fully lost? i was having my 2nd interview that afternoon and i was all in a panic cos i looked and felt like shit and couldnt believe i had to go the way i was. I'll email you before you move.

Di: Thanks Di! aww i'm gonna miss you when you go melbourne, but the twins and i decided that we're gonna come visit you. we're just going to crash at your place! =P

yui: I'm not sure which one the gateway building is..but i don't think so?

Lisa: yeh thanks Lisa! sorry i didn't reply i was a bit stressed out because i've never resigned before.
