Hey all, I wanted to start a thread as I am in need of some advice. As some may know, I work for a Hall of Fame football player at his charitable foundation here in Cincinnati. I've been there for nearly two years now, and had interned there for 8 months while I was in college. It's been a huge experience for me, and has provided me some great opportunities, both to learn skills and to meet people in the industry. However, given it's nature as a non-profit, we have a very small staff (3), and run a lot of events throughout the year (11) - so as you can imagine the workload is considerable despite it being a non-profit organization. I love the foundation and love working for the people I work for, but the current position I hold doesn't hold a lot of room for advancement. So, I have decided over the past few weeks that it may be time for a change of scenery in order to take the next step in my career. I've already started to let a few of my key contacts know and have actually heard back on a few positions with some major organizations such as MSG and ESPN in the last day. Obviously, I'm sure the interview process will take some time, as will transitioning if I were to land any of those positions as they're not in Ohio. I just figure the time is right. I'm 25, currently single, no kids, and the lease on my current place isn't too hard to pay off - a move just seems to fit as I may not have another chance later on. I haven't been as motivated as of late, and the work just isn't as fulfilling as it once was and I feel like I'd be happier not being there, as opposed to staying on and working for a paycheck despite not wanting to be there. My question is this: Given the current state of the economy, is it better to step down at my current position and look at other opportunities, or should I try and stay there until I've successfully secured new employment? I've got a decent amount of money saved up, and could probably afford to not work for a month or so, although that's a very risky move IMO just given the way things are. However, I really like the foundation I work for and there are several events coming up and I don't want to put them in a bad spot personnel-wise, as two of the upcoming events are ones that I directly oversee, and it would give them ample time to find a replacement and train them if I were to leave soon. Do I lookout for #1 and continue to stay until I'm able to find a new job, or do I give them a chance to make a move as well? Any advice would be appreciated.
