In an effort to reduce stress in my life (for a variety of reasons), I have been looking for a new job and I found one! I have been praying for a new position. I had been at my previous position for over five years. While it’s not the longest time, in today’s job market, it’s still considerable.
I left a company that had HUGE turnover (seasonal workers ‘n all) and went to a company where there is just me and another lady in the office. The entire company has less than 20 employees. Talk about a difference!
I do have to learn an entirely new industry, but so far it’s not too bad. Seems I have the most technological information here. My boss just learned to check his own emails within the past year. Yea, I said “wow” too. I’m so used to chaos, reporting to three or four managers, keeping all their stuff straight and keeping up on my own work.
The chaos of my Human Resources (HR) job is now behind me. Now, I’m an office coordinator/dispatcher. I still drink coffee, take notes and take all the new information in stride.
The best part of this job is I believe it’s an answered prayer. My first day, my co-worker and I were speaking. She’s a believer in Christ as well. She told me she believes that she doesn’t follow religion, but a relationship with Him! That’ what I, and the church I attend, believe. This position is truly a blessing.
I have put on my HR hat already and assisted with a disability claim. I’m reviewing their job applications for compliance and ordered some necessary documentation for the office. I will eventually be putting a benefits program in place for the owner (one of the reasons I was hired).
My commute is 15-minutes shorter; each way. My hours have changed, but that’s ok. I am home two hours later every morning. The furbabies love the new relaxed schedule. A bonus is I am spending a third less on gas every week too! This may not been the exact job I was looking for, however, He knew what I needed and led me to my new employer. For that I am grateful!
