Hey all, I just wanted to give you a quick update on my potential new job.
I’ve not yet been called to schedule a 2nd interview (which will be with the president of the company – corporate HQ is in Albuquerque, NM so he’ll have to take a day to fly down to interview me) but HR at the Sweetwater, TX branch called Wednesday to have me fill out the consent form to run a background check.
I thought that was a very good sign. Things are looking up! In the meantime, as I have two weeks and change of unused vacation time I will have to take before my official termination date, my email will not be deactivated for some time (it won’t be deactivated until after my last official day of employment) so I’m pre-writing an auto-reply so that if someone within the company emails me they will know the situation. I’m posting a draft of it here so maybe I can get some feedback and suggestions for improvement. Please read below:
It is with a heavy heart that I inform you that (day/date) was my last day at the office and my email has not yet been deactivated. Though I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at (company), I have accepted an equivalent position in the Abilene area so I could move back to be closer to family.
Perhaps someday we shall cross paths again. In the meantime, I am positive that my successor and/or another one of (company)’s fine draftspeople will do as great of a job for you as I hope to have. It has been a real privilege working with you for the past two and a half years.
I wish you all the best.
Lynn Blair, Former Draftsman, (Division name)
