Need some thoughts. (Shows analyst on FB, but I've since been promoted). Basically I have had all amazing reviews since at my firm.

Does anyone have any advice on managing this / perspectives I should have? I am pretty worried that I will get fired and if that happens idek what I would do.

Thanks

I have worked at a company since January that pay is about $21/hour. A recruiting agency recently contacted me via LinkedIn about a job with pay starting at $60k.

I know I shouldn’t get ahead of myself because it’s just an interview. But I wouldn’t know what to say if they asked why I am leaving.
