Exactly what I will do - finish up well, and leave them with some positive feelings.

The criticism began this is how
I would have proceeded: “ as I mentioned in my letter thanks for all the opportunities to work on projects that helped my personal growth. But this conversation is not helpful. It sounds a lot like blame, shame and playing a game. We’ve talked enough about what was and I don’t need your input or permission to feel good about being hired for a better position because I have the skills they were looking for. I will be expecting a reference letter that is truthful and accurate and positive before my two weeks are up. If you can’t do that please tell me so I can pick somebody else who will honestly assess my qualities as a personal reference. Now if you don’t mind “F**k you f**k off and go f**k yourself “. But that’s me.

The thing is, I couldn't plan for what I would say to the CEO because it all happened so quickly, and I wanted to give my notice on that same day. I practically couldn't help myself - before I knew it, I was telling him I was burnt out. But what's wrong with that, anyways? It's the truth!

@Molinit, thanks so much.

It's been a LONG HAUL.

I really struggled to obtain this one, after months and months of interviewing. I almost feel like I have post traumatic stress from it all.

And yes, onward and upward!
