I did it!

After a few months of hunting, I finally landed a job! Yay! I totally thought I butchered this interview but turns out I got a offer. I don’t want to go in too much details of the nature of the job, but it’s pretty much your basic, entry level office job. Pay is a little better than my previous positions (which is great). Best thing about it is that it is located in the heart of downtown so thank god I don’t have to relying on a car to get to work. The only difference that it will make if I drive to work is that I can leave my house 15 minutes later. Fifteen minutes is a long time in the morning but if I were to drive, the entire commute will just be me listening to the radio while paying attention to the road. On the other hand, if I wake up 15 minutes earlier, take a walk to the bus stop, hop on the bus and do whatever I want. I can listen to music, read a book, play games, and even nap if I wanted that extra energy (or grogginess LOL). I don’t think the commute will be an issue for me since I used to commute to school in Seattle all the time. I’m pretty excited!

I start work this up coming Monday. So Soon! I know.. I was supposed to start on Monday the 23rd but it just happens I will be out of town that weekend. So I asked if I could start later or earlier. They have to do the HR stuff on a Monday, and since the Monday after the 23rd is Labor day the only option is left for us is to move it up. I really don’t mind starting earlier. I’ve been pretty bored at home. I want to go out, but sometimes going out requires you to spend money which is something I don’t have right now. Thus, starting my work ASAP is no problemo.

I really don’t know what is up ahead for me with this job, but I really hope it will be something I can stick with for several years. I’m a little sick of seeing my 1 year jobs on my resume. It makes me look like I can only tolerate a job for 1 year and I need a break lol. Honestly that is half of the truth, which is why I want a job that will not burn me out too fast. A job that will respect me when I need time off to spend with my family, to travel, to play, to live my life. In return, I’ll be your hardest worker! Which was the issue I had with my previous job. We were all overworked, and as a contract worker you really feel disposable and under-appreciated. Especially when you’re working hard and doing so much better than the full time employer *cough cough* yes I am talking about you who used to sit next to me. And yet his position is in no where near termination. While I was threaten to be terminated when I needed 1 day off to attend a family member’s wedding. I understand that it’s the nature of a high demand job but really now? We’re all humans…

Then again, I learned a lot from my old job. It was very disciplining and eye opening. I met a lot of great people and learn a lot about what company culture means. Now I know how to move forward on not only looking at what I do as my jobI was being a little bit more picky about my job search this time around merely because I don’t want to see the same thing happening. Plus, being honest about this fact is the best for both me and my prospective employer right?

Hope everything goes well!
