After spending 2 weeks at a miserable temp job, my connections finally paid off and I was offered a full time job in my field!
Since we are PCSing in December I didn’t think anybody would want to hire me, so I was settling with being an overqualified Secretary and trying to just appreciate the fact that at least I had a job and a paycheck.
But last Thursday my old supervisor emailed me and said that she had a temporary position (3 months) open up for a Case Manager position and she wanted me to fill it! I didn’t even have to interview and I got a raise!
I am now a full-time Case Manager working with domestic violence victims! It’s so amazing to be working in my field again and using my degree.
These last 2 weeks that I’ve been working at the City Hall, I realized how important it is to enjoy your career. I am even more grateful that I have the opportunity to work in a field that I love. I hope that I can find a job when we move, I am eager to start my career and settle into a job.
In other news relating to change: I completely changed my hair!
