A Bipolar II girl trying to make sense of the world.
I Got The Job! : )
I got the job! A part time job I can do while going to school that is actually in the field that I'm studying which will look awesome on my resume once I graduate. It's in the law enforcement/legal field, so they are doing a criminal background check, no big deal, but I have to get a fingerprint card and send it to them? I've never heard of such a thing. It sounds so interesting! I'm used to ho hum boring finding/getting people jobs, trying to get them to take jobs they don't want, or telling them they didn't get jobs they do want, after they've called every day for two weeks and breaking their hearts. And catering to difficult candidates and difficult hiring managers. Or difficult account managers in an agency setting. And finding candidates with skills that EVERYBODY wants and they know they're in high demand and they have huge egos and attitudes. Can you tell I got really burned out on recruiting? Sure, it's been great getting calls again to be a recruiter, it was awesome feeling wanted after I had looked for a job for about a year when the economy tanked and couldn't find anything, but I loathed thinking about going back into that field. I've missed having my own office, working in the corporate world, but at the same time, it's just too stressful and boring to me. I do NOT miss "corporate speak" - "forward thinking", "move the needle", "drill down", "world class", "actionable", all these stupid terms that no one uses in the real world that people say that really means nothing but makes it seem like people are really saying something. And I "drank the kool-aid" and said the same stupid words in meetings all the time, such a follower. No more! Never again!
So as soon as I complete training, about a week once I start, then I'll begin my new job! What awesome experience to have on my resume once I do graduate and look for a job in my field!
