In my current job, I do public relations and outreach for a state agency. My one-year anniversary is in July. I really enjoy my job, but lately I've been thinking about moving on. If I did this, it would be in August, after my 10-day Keys vacation or September. Or whenever something would come along. Thing is, I'm not sure if I could find the same great work environment and benefits at another workplace. My office environment is pretty relaxed, my co-workers are great and we get along well, I have good vacation and sick time, I can ask for a day off and pretty much always get it. The state employee health benefits and retirement plan are both great. However, I am getting some sort of "itch" to move on. My main goal is to do media and public relations in a Media/PR manager type position. My workplace now does not really a great place to "move up", seeing as how the PR team consists of our PR Manager and me. I would also like to make more money :shame: My salary is good, but I can do better. Thing is, I hate the thought of giving up my great, low-stress work environment! I kind of like the thought of getting back into private industry and kicking some corporate butt and earning a great salary. But, at the same time I don't want to be working 70 hours a week and sacrificing my sanity, all while wishing I had my easy job back Has anyone been in this situation before? Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated!
