I must confess – Patience is something I am not good at. So for me to take my time to find the right job is not in my nature. I can proudly say now that I have a job that I think will take me places and advance my career in an amazing way.
I have been unhappy at work for 12 months now but decided to stick it out and see if things change. Well they didn’t and started to get worse. The day I found myself sitting on the floor at work, crying like a child, I knew I had waited long enough.
I must confess putting yourself back out on the market is not easy. You set yourself up for rejection – time and time again. I have sent my resume out to a variety of places and had a few interviews. After each job interview I would talk myself into this is the PERFECT job for me. When I didn’t get the job, I would feel deflated and rejected once more.
I am a big believer in things happening for a reason but after a few knock backs, I hit the negativity hard. I am not normally a glass half empty person but too many people were drinking from my cup and I was drained.
Until this job. When I applied for it I thought it was beyond my capability but it is what I want to do as it supports my studies. Then I got a call for an interview. After the first interview I told hubby that I don’t think I would go any further because there was too much in this role I hadn’t done yet (I told the truth in the interview about everything I was capable and not capable of doing).
I get a second call back to meet the owners.
In shock I met the owns and we had a pretty good interview (minus a couple of awkward silences). Once again thought I was done until –
I received a call offering the job. Everything I asked for I got and now I need to go shopping for some new ‘work’ clothes.
I must confess, taking myself out of my comfort zone has paid off and hopefully everything this job changes my life forever.
