My Eventful Month Part II
I was driving back from lunch one day and anticipating working another 4 hours in retail hell before my day was over when I received a call from a very nice lady in a human resources department from a company I had applied with. A smile immediately came to my face and for a second, I forgot about the idiots and morons I would have to deal with when I arrived back at work. After asking a few questions and explaining the job to me, she scheduled an interview the following day.
The interview went well and after the person I interviewed with and the HR lady spoke in private, I was offered a position pending everything else checked out – education verification, criminal record check, etc. Not wanting to sound the desperate job seeker that I actually am, I told them I’d get back to them later in the day. When I did, I obviously said yes and accepted the offer.
Although the position is far from glamorous, it’s a start in my field. And I don’t mean far from glamorous in the delusional-recent-college-grad-job-seeker way (i.e. no corner office with a secretary, a signing bonus of $100,000, a complimentary gold watch, and a driver to pick me up in the morning with a golf tee scheduled everyday at noon). But hey, it’s better than retail and at least it’ll give me the ever-desired experience that my resume desperately needs.
So, without further to say, I GOT A JOB!!!!!
(P.S. Don’t worry, I’ll still be the same grumpy, negative bastard you’ve grown to love. Instead of bitching about not being able to find a job, I’ll bitch about others not being able to find a job, the economy, labor-related issues, and other garbage I feel valuable enough to post on my blog.)
