Okay this is probably going to be the most boring (and slightly cheesey) blog ever, but I just had to shout it from the rooftops – I’VE GOT A NEW JOB!
Yes after umming and aahing for the last 6 months wherever to leave somewhere where I really wasn’t happy, I can’t believe how quickly I’ve found employment! And thank goodness before I was due to leave work.
I really couldn’t tell you how many jobs I’ve applied for through the various job alerts and employment site opportunities I’ve replied to. All I know is since mid May I’ve had a casual chat which resulted in a near job offer, an interview which fell through as they reduced their budget and weren’t pursuing the role anymore and then another interview – whereby I was successful, was called back for a second one and then got offered a job the next day. Pretty speedy work if I do say so myself (I’d only resigned 15 days before). Just seems utter madness I held off resigning for so long now.
Anyway I’m not going to go on too much about this, but I really do feel I need to put down in words how supportive, committed and caring some people have been to me throughout this whole process. You really do learn who your true friends are and I was blown away at how much people cared and were there for me.
I can’t even say thank you enough to my boyfriend and parents to how far they’ve gone and how much comfort they’ve brought me from their amazing ways, but on top of that a few close friends and work colleagues have really made me close to tears with their help and support. So, just really wanted to say a humongous thank you to them all, from the bottom of my heart.
The next step now then is that I begin my new role at the start of August and I’m lucky to have a break of 18 days from when I leave work to when I then start my role, a-mazing!
Of course I’m nervous and scared about the responsibility involved in this new position and it will be so strange not being the one who knows it all, but I know it’s also a fantastic new chapter in my life.
Now I’m just filled with dread for the leaving do – my poor liver is already shaking with fright!
