I quit!

Well, only temporarily.

In all actuality, I did quit my job, so technically I'm no longer an Evil HR Lady, but I hope you'll allow me to still play one on the internet. My PHR certification is still valid, anyway.

I didn't just quit to be lazy (ahh, laziness). I quit so that I could accompany my husband to his new job, in Switzerland. (Technically, I am legal to work there, but I'll be too busy eating chocolate and cheese to hold down a job, don't you think?)

The movers are coming today and they are packing up my computer. I will not see the computer again for two-three weeks. And it's a desktop, so no I couldn't carry it with me on the flight.

So, if you send me e-mails or comments or whatever and I don't respond, it's not that I don't love you dearly, it's that I have no internet access.

I'll "see" you in a few weeks. Send me some interesting questions.

Ask a manager--in theory. As long as I can write while eating cheese.

So you're saying telecommuting wasn't an option? ;-P

Have a safe journey, Switzerland is going to be gorgeous this time of year!!!

Congratulations! I hope this opportunity provides all the happiness you and your family deserve!

Olivia said...

In which region will you be? I'm just trying to figure out if you'll have to defend yourself (for being an American) in French, German or Italian :)

I'll look forward to interesting takes on what creative things the EU does in HR....

Have fun. If you get a job while you're there it will be great to hear about Swiss HR.

Lisa Rosendahl said...

Awesome, how unbelievebly wonderful will that be for you and your family? My advice - travel, travel, travel and see everything you can.

HR Minion said...

WOW!! Good luck!

Doctor said...

so if a non-hr employee quit work to go to Europe I'm sure a year long gap in their resume would be no big deal to you HR types, right?

Stone Caster said...

Too busy eating choc and cheese? No, you'll be too busy cleaning and choreographing your own movements to fit in with everyone else.

MEG31 said...

I'm totally jealous and will miss you terribly. Thanks for your candor and we'll see you on the other side.

Swiss HR intrigues me. I try to be Switzerland in HR, but the truth is, I know who I work for.

talentedapps said...

how do I get your job (the chocolate and cheese part). Have a great time!

Good luck. This would be also a great opportunity to dive into more international HR topics - particularly for global companies dealing with and managing through cultural differences.

Who says HR doesn't have a sense of humor?

AWESOME FUN! Congrats!

Am I the only one that caught that you did QUIT on Friday the 13th (as opposed to April 1 :p).

Very happy for you - enjoy your time overseas... it will be cool to see if your posts have a more international flavor to them!

Soon you'll be able to just stay in Switzerland as Europe and the US become indistinguishable. Switzerland might still have better chocolate, however.

Sounds like an amazing opportunity!

Congratulations on the move and good luck!

Do try some glacier skiing in the springtime.
