I've been employed in a UX position and I found out that this wasn't for me and I am pursuing work that is more front-end and coding-related. So i handed in my notice at the company, since I became very unhappy. I've not got a new job offer yet at a new company.
The development manager asked me about it and when I said I was looking for something within development she seemed to react to the fact that I hadn't asked her. I've since learned that she is in fact looking for developers.
What are the disadvantages or pitfalls in applying for these positions? At this point pretty much every one in the company has gotten word that I have handed in my notice, and I am set to leave this company at the end of next month.
