I have been with my present company a little over nine years. I have been going to school for 9 years on and off. I'm almost finished with school. I have been and am taking Office Technology. My teacher says I'm ready for an office job. I have a contact person who I can talk to, to find out what kind of office jobs my company has. Well, that contact person showed up at my job today. My back is aching and my legs hurt and I'm ready for that sit down job. I told my contact person my teacher says I'm ready for that office job. I also told him I would bring in my portfolio next week to show him what I am capable of. I don't have to do that because he called one of the office's and they have a receptionist job open. He asked me if I could answer phones. I told him I could. I start Monday morning.
I will be there for a few weeks it sounds like. It's a start. My foot's in the door. This will tell me if I like working in an office and if the people I'll be working with like me. They want to see what I can do.
I don't loose anything by doing this. If I like the job and the people like me, the job is mine. Or at least I hope it's that way. They will be leaving my job open for a few weeks until whatever is decided.
I really hope this works out. I can go back to my old job if I don't like this new job. I want this new job very very badly. I want a sit down job in the worst way.
