Telling my boss I’m leaving
The newspaper world, you may heard, is going through a savage depressive episode. My company is no exception. In fact, the paper I work for is now on sale as the parent company braves creditor protection.
I have an exciting job that pays me well. There are young journalists who would commit public arson to have what I have.
And yet, I’m putting it on hold for one year.
And it might not be there when I come back.
I must be insane. That’s certainly what I expected my colleagues to say when I informed them of my decision.
This is what they said.
