There have been and will be so many life changes in the next week or so. If you remember, a couple of months ago, I posted about a possible promotion opportunity at work. Well, that didn’t work out for me. However, I believe that things happen for a reason.
I’ll admit, I felt defeated when I didn’t get the promotion. Like, really really defeated. I sucked it up for the most part and went on with my life. I started to look outside my current employer to see what sort of jobs were available.
I applied for a handful of jobs and had some interviews. I didn’t leave a single one feeling confident in my decision to leave my employer and the benefits that almost 9 years of employment gets you.
However, that all changed last week. It was a whirlwind of process. I received a call for an interview on Tuesday for an interview on Thursday. Had what I thought was an awesome interview and left feeling very confident in my decision. I had a call for a 2nd interview that very same day. My follow-up interview was scheduled for the next morning. By the end of the day last Friday, I was offered the position. I accepted the offer right away and couldn’t be happier.
I’ll be working in the IT department for the city that I live in. Not only does the job hopefully allow me to use some of my IT background, but the pay, hours and benefits are awesome!
I’m sad that I’ll be leaving a group of people that feel like a 2nd family to me. I’ve made some great friendships and I hope they continue through the years. But this new opportunity just feels right. I have no regrets and I’m not second guessing myself at all. For the first time in what feels like quite a while, I’m excited about the future and can’t wait to see what happens!
