“It’s your last couple days, Dan.”
“Yeah, it feels surreal, Bob. My first job . . . coming to an end. But, it’s for the best. Moving on to another opportunity that is better for my career.”
“Well, good luck with that Dan. Stay in touch and let me know if I can be of any assistance.”
Common dialogue that occurs every day in the workplace. The very dialogue that happened to me several decades before. Bob, the senior sales person in the firm I joined right out of college, was the star performer. He had been with the firm 6 years longer than me. Bob had done so well that the firm had recently made him a partner.
