It's been a great ride...

There was a high level meeting this morning, and my manager was sequestered away for hours. We've accomplished a goodly portion of our goals, dragged this little account back from the brink, shored up the walls, battened the hatches; we've gone straight up, up, up in customer satisfaction, climbing 18 points since I came on board and started an intensive outreach campaign to disgruntled customers first, new buyers second, and anyone else who looked like they might need a little extra intervention in the meantime.

When he came out, I finally got the word. The higher level folks have decided that the strategies and processes that my team (yeah, MY TEAM - man, I feel kinda warm and fuzzy about my boys) have developed are going to be deployed across the entire interactive department, to be implemented in all the other online accounts as well.

Who knew the project would succeed so well?

Sadly, this means that my job here will be ending. Anywhere from 30 to 60 days from now, I will be unemployed again, but I will have the fantastic experience of having worked for a fabulous company and top rate people, and I am so grateful to have had this experience that it literally moves me to tears.

Moving on is going to be doubly hard because I can't even imagine another place being close to this. This job has really been the pinnacle of my job experience thus far in my life. I'm even going to be writing up a training manual and flying back down to the states to train the team that will be taking over my job.

HA! A whole TEAM is taking over MY JOB!

*giggles madly*

So yeah. I kinda rock. And I'm happy even though I'm sad. We did good. We are awesome. I succeeded beyond my wildest expectations and I didn't even do everything that I wanted to do for this account - I have plans and dreams for where it should go that the bigwigs haven't even touched!

On the down low, there is a very *VERY* tiny chance that this transition could parlay into more work, but it's so vague and slight that I can't even consider it, hope for it, want it - cuz it'll kill me to build up hope and then lose it.

Okay. There it is. Huh. There is a certain relief in knowing that there is a more specific end time.

Train your replacements? That's just so wrong...

Go you! What a shame they don't decide that you did such a good job that they should take you on permanently to help with other problems...!

It is pretty bad-ass that a whole team is replacing you. But maybe you'll move on to something even more awesome?
