First of all, wishing everyone a belated but VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR and thanks for reading my posts, I appreciate each and every one of you. Wishing you a Great and POSITIVE 2012, the underlined word being my word for 2012. My thanks to Lynette of A Work in Progress for providing the inspiration to choose my word for 2012.
On a very positive note, I have finally become employed, having completed my first day at my new job today. After having gone for many interviews in person and having conducted several telephonically, to no avail, this position was finalised very quickly. I went for an interview with the consultant last Wednesday, with the employer on Thursday, the decision to employ me was also finalised on Thursday, received my Offer of Employment on Friday and started working on Monday, chip chop and its done.
Okay, as with all positions, today was spent feeling really stupid as I didn't know anything and made a big stuff up with the big boss when I didn't record a phone message properly (yes, switchboard is part of the job). There are a lot of bitsy details to learn. The lady I am replacing is busy training me and it was stressful but I am gainfully employed. So that is a positive start to the year.
