I trust you all had a great Thanksgiving. I did. I was blessed with having friends in the DMV who were providing a SPREAD, which meant I did not have to cook a thing! 🙂 And of course, since my part-time job is in retail, I was working on Black Friday.
I haven’t posted in awhile due to a number of things, but mainly because of my work schedule. I’m working in the mornings, which actually works better for me (at the moment). And by the time I get home, I don’t really feel like posting for the next day. But here I am, and I have some updates!
I have an interview on Thursday! Thanks to one of my sorors, she forwarded my resume to an agency that she has worked with, and they contacted me for an interview. I’m hoping this leads to some good news in the near future. And my part-time job was flexible enough to change my schedule.
I recently heard from a representative that I interviewed with last month. Honestly, I had given up all hope regarding this position. But I got some news that I was still being considered; I just have to complete the “official” application. And I’m guessing the next step is just me hearing back if I have been selected. In the meantime, I am still applying for jobs. Nothing’s guaranteed until I get an e-mail or phone call saying, “Ms. Elle, you have been offered a position with a salary of X amount per year. Do you accept?”
I know I’ve said this before, but I’m really thankful that I have people looking out for me and steering me in various directions and websites to go to. It’s very appreciated, and I’m learning new places to look at each day. I have to admit, it’s hard being so perky and cheerful and optimistic all the time, but I have to have hope. Trouble don’t last always, and I’m really hoping to hear some positive news soon.
On another front, even though this has nothing to do with job hunting, things are going fine with the New Boy. So much so that we hung out together yesterday. He took yesterday off and I had yesterday off, so I decided to bless him with my company. 😉
So, that’s all I’ve got. I ask you to keep me in your thoughts and prayers, and send your good vibes my way! 🙂 Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
