The Lord has truly blessed me…
I was struggling for the last year being without work/income and unable to pay certain expenses. Without any job prospects on the horizon and the house I was renting being put up for sale…it was time to make a very big and important decision. Do I stay in CA and tough it out (for who knows how long) and rack-up more unwanted debt, or do I pack up and move to WA where I can live in my parent’s basement for free while looking for work up there. As you all already know from previous blog posts, I decided to head up north to Eastern WA.
I moved up here in November, spending the days with my mom having fun during the holiday seasons. But come January, it was time to get serious about finding a job! The holidays were over, no more excuses. So I applied to a few more places locally, but I wasn’t seeing anything here either…except trucking jobs – NO THANKS! LOL! So I went to an employment agency, Express Employment Professionals. I interviewed and within a week I was placed in a temp job! Thank You, Jesus! It wasn’t an ideal position, but it was my foot in the door with a GREAT company! The job was only for a week and a half of employment, but on the third day I was called into a meeting with three department managers and the director of operations. They were interested in hiring me on and they were to decide what department I would fit best in and wanted to know my thoughts. That was pretty exciting!
Initially they felt I would fit best in Customer Service, so I started sitting with one of the reps watching and learning, while also doing the temp job I had been hired on to do for that week and a half. By the end of the week, some decisions needed to be made. They knew I had an interest in Accounting and had experience there as well...and it just so happened that a position was going to be opening up. Luck or God? I think God for sure!! Within a couple days I was moved into my new position in Accounting!
What a blessing this job has been so far! I work with 4 wonderful ladies in my new department, who are so nice and very sweet! Everyone in this company is awesome, so friendly and welcoming…including all of upper management! It’s definitely a great atmosphere here. Usually I have a hard time waking up in the morning when I have a job, but I’ve been up early and to work early everyday! The drive is nice; it takes me about 20 minutes to get to work but its farmland and very enjoyable…with NO TRAFFIC!!! I just think I’m a very blessed girl to have this job. After so long searching in CA for work with no luck…and then to find this company/job so fast when moving out here…its truly a blessing! I have met some wonderful people up here and will hopefully make some awesome friendships. Thank You, Jesus, for always providing for me and for blessing me with this wonderful job!
