Got a job!

October 31st, 2007 at 03:09 am

I'm still somewhat in shock in having gotten a job, but... Yay!!!

The shock is because a part of my brain is firmly in the "why would anyone want to hire me?" camp. Despite my education and some years of experience I still feel like a little kid a lot of the time.

I had the same exact reaction when I got my last job a few years ago. Its happy shock coupled with a big healthy dose of sheer incredulity. Needless to say I am supremely thankful to the big guy upstairs .

The company I signed on with is small but growing, and their office was really cheerful and airy. It also had a good vibe and passed my Gut Reaction Test immediately - i.e. nothing in my gut screamed "you do not want to be working here!" while I was walking around their office. (Despite being a logical and sane woman, I'm a big believer in my instincts.)

To top it off, its more than what my old job had paid, which I am predictably ecstatic about (although I would still have taken it if they offered me less! shhhh...)

Its sort of a new industry for me, although the job scope is something I have had experience with. Most importantly, the work looks to be a lot less stressful - a point that was really important for me since I want to avoid getting into the same situation as my old job.

I will start officially in about a fortnight so I still have some break left.

I'm excited and happy and thankful and humbled all at once.

And oh yeah, I can't wait to start earning so I can start saving again!

    I am trying to do a little research into my surname
    and came across your website.
    I am a UK resident with family connections in Austria
    and the Czech Republic. I began the Sindel generation in
    the UK in the 1970's and are now in our 3rd generation.
    If you have the time and interest, maybe you could tell me something about your connections to the Sindel family.

    Hi John, there's no relation at all, sorry.

    I was just a *huge* Mortal Kombat fan growing up (Queen Sindel was a character)

    Best of luck in your family tree search! Smile
