Chit Chat: A New Job

Chit Chat: A New Job
I have news that I am so excited about to share. I have a new job!

Since graduating law school I have been unhappy with my job situation. I cannot even begin to count the number of hours and days that I have spent worrying and crying because I was just plain unhappy. I tried numerous times to approach my former employer about my position and in hopes of creating some plan that would make me feel better about my job. After many discussions, my boss made it clear that she was very happy with how things were and that she had no intentions of anything ever changing.

Knowing that there was no way for me to grow in my job, for me to be happier, or for my position to improve I knew I needed to make a change. I kick started a job search a very long time ago and let me tell you it was hard. For months and months I felt like a complete failure that no one wanted. I sent out dozens of resumes, tried to look at it from every angle possible, approached everyone I knew and many people I didn't and absolutely nothing came from it.

I had largely given up. I felt hopeless and had really began to believe that I was completely stuck where I was. Then less than a month ago the secretary for an attorney that I had tried to get to meet with me for months called on a Friday afternoon. She said her boss asked her to call me to find out if I knew any attorneys looking for a job. I immediately replied, "Me!" After asking if I was serious she asked a few other questions and said she would pass the information on to her boss. The next Monday she called and asked me to come to their office that day. When I arrived at their office they began immediately telling me what I would be responsible for at their office, the office schedule, and we discussed pay. It was also decided that on December 18th I would give my two weeks notice.

Today marks my seventh day at my new job. Maybe it is the newest of it but I am happy and excited. I have been told that there are many possibilities for growth here and that is what I want. I want the opportunity to grow, to be successful, and to always improve. This new job serves as a reminder that if you work hard and are kind great things will happen.

P.S. This is a little freaky but when I visited a psychic over the summer she told me I would get a new job opportunity in December!
