Update ... YEAHHHHH after 5 hours of interviewing

Update:
I got the job ...... I just got off the phone with the recruiter and she verbally extended the offer.
I can't believe it. It was the first one I interviewed for after deciding I wanted to leave. It is a great company and the offer is outstanding.
I can't wait to go in and resign when my boss returns from vacation.




I am exhausted but feel empowered.

My current job has not been going well lately. My boss pretty much wants me out so she can replace me with someone more like herself (uber political). She has been setting extremely unrealistic expectations and have on several occasions told me I was not a good fit for a client facing role.She went as far as telling me if I didn't start producing more work she would not be able to justify my role. The job is stressful and I realized I was beginning to internalize her opinion of me which would mean death to my career.
At first I was quite freaked out as I am the only one working right now (DH is a SAHD) and I need the job. After got done though I decided I would beat her to it and started sending out resumes left and right.
Well today I had final interviews for a job with a bigger scope and more money. This is less than 2 weeks since I sent my resume in. It would be working for an organization which is growing and values my role. I loved the general manager I met today (he would be my main client)

So the recruiter said she was certain this would go to offer and we discussed pay etc.

I am so worn out right now but excited. Interviewing for executive jobs is hard work. I hope to have an official offer next week and then can resign the following Monday when the boss comes back from vacation. Sometime it feels really good to take charge

Good for you. Better to make the move on your terms on your time. Maybe you can dump some work back on that boss of yours, too
