The long awaited job

Well, now that I have finally had a very successful first full week of my new job, I thought I would finally talk about it.  This looking for a job thing has really been a pain this time around.  However, I have to say that once again the Lord pulls me thru according to my faith.

I really thought that maybe that last job with the Social Network Marketing company was gonna be the job for me.  I put my trust in the Lord and figured that this is where he wanted me to land. However, I was not happy there but I was happy to have a job.  Luckily after 3 weeks they decided that they did not need me afterall and I was let go.  So, there I was on the hunt yet again.  I started to get a bit frustrated as I hate sending out my resume to companies and waiting to hear from them.  I firmly believe in Networking and getting myself out there in front of people.  But there I was searching the internet!  Yuck! 

I started to seriously consider looking into going back to school and even borrowing the money to try and land a job in the Healthcare industry.  There seemed to be a lot of jobs there.  However, that was becoming a discouraging pursuit since any way I looked at it it was gonna cost me a lot of mula!  But the thought of working in a Healthcare environment sounded like something I thought I could really enjoy.  So, out I went again to seek for employment and a way to get my foot in the door at some Healthcare facility. However, I kinda decided to put that thought on the back shelf of my mind.

The Temp Agency that I had found the last job at told me that they didn't have anything for me.  So, come Monday I was happy to be home again with my kids taking care of things at home.  On Wednesday I decided to follow up on a couple of leads out in Provo and Orem.  Those proved to be a waste of time too!  So, on my way back home to search the web again.....I decided I would stop by one more time at the Temp Agency and poke my head in and just remind them that I was still looking.  Well, once again they told me that they did not have anything at the present time.  Then the gal in the office said she might have something coming up and that I should stay in touch.  So, I went home.  About an hour later I recieved a call from her and she told me that she might actually have a job for me at a Chiropractic office.  That was very interesting to me as I had worked for a Chiropractor when Michael was just a baby and I really did enjoy that environment.  So, she sent my resume and set up an interview for the following day.  Well, needless to say, I got the job.  And....I LOVE IT!  It seems to be the perfect fit.  They hired me on permanently as the Office Supervisor. I am learning a lot and I feel right at home there.  Great people to work for, Great Doctor, Great customers!  I love working with the general public and talking to new people every day and serving them.  I feel so blessed to be working there.  They are compensating me well and it's a Healthcare facility!  Not what I originally thought it would be, but it is a familiar environment and it fits me perfectly..... It is both challenging and fullfilling!  I am hoping that this is a very long term relationship. So, wish me luck!
