I'm headed out the door soon, but just thought I would share the great news. Remember my interview Tuesday morning? Well....... I GOT THE JOB!!!!!!!!
I'm going to be the Development Coordinator for a swim team. They've completely re-done the structure of their team to make it much more competitive. They want a "feeder system", to make sure that there are always swimmers ready to move up into the competitive ranks, which is where I come in. I'm in charge of the feeder program, and I get to monitor progress and lead a team of 9 coaches. It's no where near as many hours as I was hoping for, but the pay per hour is great, and it's exactly the type of work I want to be doing. So, I'm not going to complain about the lack of hours...getting this type of work experience right out of university is enough for me!!
When I first heard that I'd gotten the position, I hesitated to accept because I was worried about the financial problems of working a low-hour job, but I shouldn't have doubted God. Less than ONE HOUR later, I received yet another phone call. Some of you may remember that I had an informal interview with the department I worked for this summer to discuss the possibility of me returning for a higher position in the fall. They were interested, but there weren't any positions open. Well, there are TWO open now, and I get my pick!! That's right, I get to PICK which one I want!!! They're only part-time positions, but the woman I spoke with said that most employees that they have started as part-timers and then moved up to full-time, so the potential for advancement is there! I'm debating which one to take, so please pray that the Lord guides me to the right decision.
I can't say enough how grateful I am for the prayers that were sent my way this week. I was so nervous, and knowing that I had people praying for me really calmed me down! The interview was stressful, and I kept saying " exactly". I met with the board of directors, and as they were explaning the new structure and the new goals, I kept saying "exactly, exactly". I could hear myself saying it and I kept trying to stop, but I was too nervous!! Haha- oh well, it's over now and it ended well!!
