So I have been very unhappy as of lately. My job is not the ideal one. Sure it’s something that pays the bills and I am honestly not very bad at it, but my job makes me hate people. Customer Service has never been my forte. I get a lot of compliments on how well I am at it but I have to really ground and center between each and every call so that I don’t go insane. Sometimes one call gets through that irritates me in a way that I forget my manners and I am not very nice (but not near as mean as I can get). And let’s not even discuss how much I have been sick over the last month. That place is a hotbed of germs and I have been affected in a bad sort of way.
So with my unhappiness at the job, I continued to search for something in the financial field. Something that I would look forward to doing (like I feel about tax returns). I have continued applying and applying, hoping something would come through. I am very happy to announce that something did. The day after Christmas I had to go to Urgent Care. That same day I interviewed for an Accounts Payable position. The hubs thought I was crazy and that I would sabotage the interview with my incessant hacking but I couldn’t pass the opportunity. So I interviewed and I felt very good about it. I was told they would let me know by the 28th if I made it to the second rounds. I did. Then I sent in my references and those came back on a very positive note (bless my references!). So I was called to see about meeting my coworker this morning. I went out and met the most loveliest woman. I also spoke with the VP of Finance for the second time. He let me know they had one more person to talk to and then they would make their decision. I was a bundle of nerves for 5 hours. And towards the end, I convinced myself the other person was going to be Superman and hired on the spot. Except I got an email with the offer. I have accepted it and I am seriously on cloud 9000.
This is a job I wanted so badly. It has wonderful benefits and an increase in pay. But really? That doesn’t matter. The environment is one that I love. It’s quiet (the occasional loud noise but overall quiet). It’s number crunching. It’s Quickbooks. It’s money. It’s a set schedule with no overtime and weekends off. I love everything about this job. So much that I would do it for free if they asked. It’s going to feel good having a job I love again!
