I just have to share with more people besides my Fiance and parents because I am sooo excited! I got a verbal offer today for a job I really want. I’ve been very unhappy in my current position. I’ve been at the company for the past three years doing employee communications, and I find it so unfulfilling and a bit boring. The company is also a mess – 3 different bosses in the past 4 months plus a bankruptcy and a merger!
Last week I interviewed for a position in the philanthropy department at a city nonprofit. I thought it went pretty well and was super excited when I got a second interview. I went in for the second interview today and by the end of it received a verbal offer for the job! I should get the formal offer next week and I’ll start January 6. It’s a raise and a 20 minute shorter commute!
I am just so thrilled. I’ve pretty much been having a quarter life crisis, complete with crying and anxiety for the past year on what I want to do with my life because I knew I was so unhappy in this field. I really hope this is my calling, because I want to have a job I am passionate about.
I was getting really down on myself because I had several interviews and even some second interviews that led to nowhere. If there’s anyone else in a similar position, just keep trying. I was actually not qualified for this position – they wanted 5 years experience in an area I had about six months experience in lol but I guess they saw the potential in me!
Anyway this was way longer than I expected, but I’m just so happy!
