You see, I have been applying on and off for new jobs. Not because I don't like my job quite the opposite. I am grateful to my co workers and the job itself...I have learned alot!
Point being...I want to learn more, so I have randomly been applying for jobs at other facilities. then I forget about it.
Well, low and behold...last week I had an interview. This time I was determined to not flub the :
" What do you do when you have a problem with a co-worker?" question.
and to answer, without laughing:
..."what is your weak point?"
I practiced in the car. I spoke out loud.
The interview only had a few quiet times and I felt ok, but didn't put much stock into it.
Went home, cracked open a beer, yelled at the kids...you know a normal day...and forgot about it...didn't even tell anyone.
Then a few weeks or so later I got the call:
"We would like to offer you the telemetry job"
Total panic set in. I freaked, I kept quiet, didn't tell Bobby. Called back and asked about the benefits. I asked what the pay was. I did the math and made a check list.
Things happen for a reason.
Would I have rather transferred within my own hospital to the department I want to learn? Yes...but they wouldn't transfer me or give the chance to learn something new.
I had to change, life is change. I vowed to keep my doors open. I start July 25th
What I want to remind people is if you crave change just keep trying. Reformat and try again...and don't forget when you have applied for a job...you may just get it.
