Today I gave my notice

This morning I resigned from the agency where I've spent the last 7 1/2 years. I started here as a copywriter and I'm leaving as an Associate Creative Director. I've learned a lot, worked on wide variety of businesses and made great friends.

Leaving is bittersweet, but it's time to move on. I've been given an opportunity to work on brands that excite me and become an expert in a rapidly emerging field of marketing at another agency in Chicago.

I'm energized.
And terrified.
But I'm confident this change is good.

And since this is only the second job change I've made in my adult life, I'm curious: how long did it take for you to feel competent at a new job?
