If anyone has read my blogs in the past, then you will know that I have had tremendous struggles at work over the past few months. I finally came to the realization that the stress was undermining all my efforts at good health, so I began my search for a new position a couple of months ago. I wanted to go into sales again, but unfortunately, I haven't been able to get more than two interviews; the first one I didn't get hired and the second one I turned the job down because it had absolutely no benefits...
Well...I applied for another job recently with the state government...and surprised even myself when I was one of the top candidates! I went and took their skills verification test, thinking I wasn't going to be in the top four, which would get you an interview, and surprised myself again...I got a call for an interview...Unfortunately, it was during the week my boss was on vacation, so I ended up doing a phone interview. I thought for sure this would disqualify me...but they hired me! I am so happy! It is at a higher salary, with better hours and I start the 29th! With the different hours I will be able to get to the gym more easily during the week.
Thanks for all my Sparkfriends who said a little prayer for me and supported me when I was down!
Thank the Lord in Heaven also for all good things come from above!
