Hired


At this particular moment, I am feeling nothing shy of blessed. As I mentioned previously, I got let go of my job. Exactly three weeks later, I got a strike of luck. After being let go, I began applying for jobs. MANY jobs. I applied at Zions Bank for a teller position (realizing I couldn't be too picky if I don't have my degree yet) and got an interview the next day. I went and interviewed and it went wonderfully. However, when I left the building, I didn't have that great of a feeling about it. So I kept applying for different kinds of jobs, especially ones that struck my fancy.

About a week and a half later, I got a call from Zions Bank to tell me that I had received the teller position. Still, not feeling that great about it, I turned it down. WHAT? I turned a job down? I thought I was so silly, but I couldn't explain my feelings toward it. Then, then, then, I got an interview (and I totally wasn't expecting to, either!) with one company that I had always dreamed of working for. I was so incredibly nervous. I had a phone interview, which resulted in a second interview at the physical location. One week later, I got a call from the hiring manager to tell me that I got the position if I was still interested. I accepted! 

After the phone call, I couldn't help but cry, just a little, and say a quick prayer to thank the big man upstairs for all of his help. I am so happy. The company I will be working for is an online marketing company. I never would have expected to get this job as well as have so many opportunities to grow! At my last job, I felt stuck. I started to become unhappy simply because there was absolutely no room to grow, and now my opportunities are endless. It took me three weeks. Right now, right this very second, it can't get better. Now, I understand the quote by Dalai Lama. "Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck." I really didn't want to lose my job. Per contra, it's now such a wonderful stroke of luck.

  1. There's a Hilary weeks song where she sings about how she asked god for all these things not realizing his no's were actually yes's to better things for her. I love it and have found that to be so true in my life!!
    Congrats!!!

  5. It makes me happy that you go a job you are excited about! I think you made a good decision about not accepting at Zion's, my husband worked there for a year and while he was happy to have a job, the job didn't make him happy (and that's putting it nicely haha). Congrats again!

  6. Woo hoo!!! So excited for you lady!!! The Lord always has great plans for us, we just might not see them in the beginning. That's what I've learned this semester.

  11. I love how things like this always work out! I've been stressing about jobs so much since I'm graduating in April, and received a really, really great offer that would give me more money than I can imagine knowing what to do with right out of school, but for some reason I just can't bring myself to accept it. I'm crossing my fingers for a similar experience!

    1. That's so interesting!! It's crazy how the spirit works though. I never would have known WHY I didn't feel great about accepting the job, but I don't know if I want to know anyway. Best of luck to you, Brittany!

  15. Stumbled across this post and can't help but feel a little bit of jealousy/ excitement for you! I've been trying to get my "dream job" for about 9 months now with no avail. However, throughout all the tears, discouragement, and feeling defeated, I know that there's something coming that'll be greater than what I could imagine! I've always said I'm an impatient person- here's to improving on that!! Good for you for following your dreams and turing down a position! I'm sure that was really scary but it's obvious you're doing something right and Heavenly Father was directing you!
