I think I just did... I'd really like some input, but first a brief history. For the last month or so, I've been considering switching employers. I am currently in the mortgage business and have been having a roller coaster year (financially speaking). I've been weighing the option of taking a position with steady pay, benefits, the whole shebang. The only thing is... I'm HAPPY where I am. I am being sought after by a local consumer finance operation as their assistant manager. This particular office's parent company is one of the top 100 companies to work for in 2005, according to Fortune Magazine. After getting into the mortgage biz, I told myself that I'd never work in a large coporate enviornmet again, but feel the need to out of neccesity at this point. I would be gaining a steady paycheck, insurance benefits, etc... On the flipside, I'd be giving up the time and effort I've spent in developing the local relationships I've come to aquire in this industry. I'd also be giving up the ability to have above average income during the months when my business is good. Friday, I bit the bullet and scheduled an interview with this particular company for 2:00 this afternoon. As noon approached, I started becoming very aprehensive about going. It wasn't the fear of the interview that started to make me feel this way, but the fear of perhaps making a HUGE mistake regarding my career. As I left for the interview, my heart started pounding and I became more anxious about the situation than just about any other experience in my life. I became flush and wanted to go anywhere but to the interview. I could seriously feel my blood pressure skyrocketing. I have never felt anything like it. Upon arriving for the interview, I was told that the manager was not even in the building and had left an application for me to fill out. I was told to bring it back in tomorrow, when I would be interviewd by the regional manager. It has taken me nearly an hour and a half to come back "down" from this... Sorry for the novel, but hopefully I can get some good advice on: 1) Did I have an anxiety attack? 2) What should I do about my job?
