BIG change happening...EXCITING NEWS!!! :D

Friday, April 13, 2012

no, i'm not preggers (ahem, not possible!). not moving across the country or anything like that....but....

I GOT A NEW JOB!!!!!!!! emoticon

for those of you who didn't know, i've been working in accounting at the same company for the past 4.5+ years. my background? communications and theatre. (yeah, don't know how that happened, either.) i've been trying to find another job for a really looooong time and have had a few close calls, but no luck.

well, sometimes i think things happen for a reason.

a friend from high school that i recently reconnected with just got hired at a hospice care company as community relations director. she told me there was a position open for volunteer coordinator, and that it's something i might like. i applied, had an awesome interview (and i'm sure she kind of promoted me, too - she'd be my boss!), and got the call yesterday that i had been hired!!

i just put in my two weeks' notice. not everyone knows, yet, shhhh..

this new position is RIGHT up my alley. the more i found out about it, the more i wanted it! i'll be going to companies and events to speak about the hospice, i'll be organizing events like craft nights (which i LOVE ... one of my interview questions was "are you crafty?" ummmm......YES!!!), i'll be coming up with new creative ideas for ways to spread the word that we need volunteers. but best of all, i'll be helping people. hospice is near and dear to my heart, because my grandmother was in hospice care before she passed away, and they did a great job. i firmly believe that more people should pay attention to people near the end of their many people get wrapped up in their busy lives, they forget about their elders.

i feel like this job will be rewarding and i'll be making a huge difference in people's lives. i can't even TELL you how excited i am about this! none of the other positions i've applied for over the years can even COMPARE to this!!!

and, i'll get to work with a friend. how cool is that?!

happy dance!!!
