A year ago today, I was still in my training rotations at my (then) new job. I had just attended ball and started a new job and was terrified. I had left a job after some terrible experiences and you know what they say, “Once bitten, twice shy.”
It’s crazy to think it’s been a year at my job. It definitely doesn’t feel that way. Not in a bad way mind you, just that time goes by so fast. I have met some really amazing people, had some really great times and made some truly awesome friends. I feel very fortunate that a year ago, I was contacted out of the blue for an interview. I had applied for a job there in the past and I don’t even remember what it was. I didn’t get it, but they remembered me and asked me to come in for an interview. At my working interview the whole team seemed to really like me and told me that they were going to recommend me for the job.
Just a few weeks later, I was hired and working my training rotations. Crazy!
Now, I help train the new staff and feel like a family member. I’m very fortunate to have found such a great place to work and to have found a place that feels like I belong. Let me tell you, it’s tough in a female dominated field to find a staff that isn’t full of petty girls who talk crap about each other. We all get along for the most part and I couldn’t ask for a better employer.
