Personal current event--finally found a job!
Been trying for over a year now to get a job, and NOTHING was working out. I had really bad hours that I could work, and I haven't worked in a few years. Stay at home mom/home educator do not count as "jobs." Understandable, but still irritating of course.
So I started to do some volunteer work at my church's recreation ministry to buff up my resume until I found a job. I have been there about six months now, and really impressed my coworkers I guess. They kept telling me to put an application in, that the person over the ministry wanted to hire me.
Soooo, I took the chance and did it. I go to finish filling out paperwork on Monday! It is only a part time call in type position, but even one shift a month would bring like $20 or $30, which would STILL be a huge help. And one of the regular workers will be out for most of January, and she told me to just tell her what days and times I want to work, and she'll make sure I get them.
The job is PERFECT
I can work when I want...if they call or ask ahead, and I can't/don't want to work (which is unusual, I LOVE working there) I can turn it down.
If need be, I can bring the kids with me, because they are well behaved. Specially if it is an afternoon shift, because Ben can pick them up early in the shift as he gets off work.
They know that I'm a SAHM/home educator and that we can't afford child care, and want to work around that.
I love working there. It's been my church home for over 13 years.
THe people that work there are pretty awesome, a fun mix.
And it's just in time for the holidays....
Patience, and being selective paid off! I found the perfect job that I love working....and the irony is that I didn't need to even submit my resume lol. Which is why I started there in the first place, to buff it up.
Okay, announcement over lol...I'm just so excited that I can't stop thinking about it. I'm super proud of myself. It's been so long since I had real employment, this feels so good!
