I did it. I applied for a new position and just got out of my interview. Why is this such a big deal? Well, let me tell you. I’ve been in my department for the past 5 years. It’s my comfort zone. I am soooo comfortable here, you have no idea. Once work is done, it’s good times. Like right now, I don’t have another report due until about 12:30pm. So I have a bit of time to write and maybe even visit another cubicle I take time off when I need to, no problem. I don’t have anyone hovering over me while I’m working and that’s a huge plus! No one really bothers me much. Sometimes it does become crazy, just sometimes. Other than that, I really like my comfort zone.
BUT, after a while you become complacent. That’s me. I need a change. And more money LOL. I’m the kind of person that needs to grow. I do a lot of other things outside of work so I do feel like I’m always growing. For whatever reason now, I feel like it’s time for growth at work. To be totally honest, the universe brought someone into my life and made me…I dunno…a little more brave…? I’m not even really sure…but I know I had some help. See, there’s good in every bad. Not saying it was bad. That’s a whole other story I won’t even get into.
I should know by this afternoon if not tomorrow whether I get the position or not. If I do, LA here I come! Just for a week…hey free trip If I don’t, that just means I’m meant for something else. I’m glad I had enough courage to get out of my comfort zone and apply. I needed to freshen up on my interview skills. Good to know I still got charm, haha. I’ll let you guys know what my score is to as well. It’s a panel interview with 3 people. I have to score high enough to even get through to the next step. I feel pretty good now. I soooo needed this. Now that I’ve taken the next step, doors will continue to open for me . I guarantee you
Here’s a before interview pic…yes I’m a dork. I know, I know, LOL.
