Well I like hearing that because I agree that I can't think of a good reason why they wouldn't hire me; in fact, there would be no learning curve and I would see the position as mutually beneficial to myself and the company.

You can put me down as a reference if you give me Halladay.

Does that mean you're considering it or...?

So an update:

I applied for the job and told my supervisor. I didn't want to make it seem like I was trying to pull a fast one. He agreed it was a good opportunity for me.

But, I signed a non-compete contract and that's coming back to bite me. The company I applied to would have to pay a 20% buyout of my offered salary to my current company. My company could also deny the buyout outright. This has me nervous enough.

I also heard they interviewed someone for the position today. This might be something to worry about, or it might be routine.

Anyway, I'm pulling my hair out enough over it.

How old is your contract? Check to make sure the area where you live has not made any rulings that non-compete clauses are no longer enforceable - it happened recently where I live

Yeah, that funny thing is that the company I work for is in Pennsylvania, but the client company I applied to, and where I work, is in Maryland.

The raise will be brought up if I don't get this job, but I'll mostly likely relocate back to Harrisburg
