Hivemind, please help me choose a career direction

In short: PMP? CISA? Dev? Or all of the above? I'm working at a small IT company (30 people). I have a CompSci degree. I went from programming to business analysis to project management with a side of information security thrown in as I'm responsible for ISO 27001 policy compliance. I'm not a "rockstar" or expert in any of those fields, but I can do them competently. (There certainly haven't been any complaints from the management.) Basically I'm a "jack of all trades, master of none". So where do I go from here? [more inside]

Want to quit but don't want to look like a jerk on my resume.

I was going to write a long explanation of why I want to quit, but really, none of it matters. I'm a PM in Advertising - I have worked at small agencies and probably never want a long term, real FT gig at a big shop. I would be okay contracting at a place like that. If I decide to quit this job, I will likely do so in favor of a contract, and will likely avoid a real FT gig for some time due to agency burn out (unless I get an offer from a known quantity, which is a possibility but not a certainty). All in all, I'd much rather be without anything to do and the option to do what I'd like instead, rather than where I am now, which is nothing to do and ready to lose my mind. [more inside]

Go for the gold! Or, you know, don't.

I left my last job to move and to find something a step up from where I was. Now I found that step up, and I’m scared to take it. [more inside]

Should I doubt my awesomeness?

Okay, okay. I started sending out resumes. Now I need some help separating the wheat from the chaff, so to speak. All of these emails about consulting and contract positions - are they worthwhile, or just recruiter spam? [more inside]

Ok, this has been fun, what's next?

I think it's time to look for a new job. The problem is, I'm not sure what I want to do next, and I don't know how my skills translate. Long explanation inside. [more inside]
