I work for a small rural hospital. I recently applied for a job with the home health agency that is an affiliate of the hospital. However, they function as seperate companies so I have to go through the entire process rather than just tranferring to a different department. With that said, I interviewed on Friday. I received a phone call on Monday that they wanted me to come in to the office to discuss a job offer. I went in today to discuss the offer and was told that they would not contact my references or anyone else until I had gone to administration at the hospital and made my intentions known. They will not go as far as tell me I have the job, but it they want me to make it known that I plan to resign. I was told by the hiring manager that she doesn't know why I leaving so she won't call yet. I told that I am not leaving with hard feelings and that I do not want to make any moves until I have another job, but I was still told to talk to administration. What do you think of this?The hospital cannot hold me in my current position. I will be resigning and hired as a new employee of a different company. Nothing transfers over.
