|A Time for Celebration!|
Do you remember I had said there was an awesome job opening that I was so excited about? Do you remember that I had two interviews and I was waiting for a response? Do you remember that the position was newly created and I would not start until January.....so I would not hear back until probably mid-November if the job is mine?
I went in for a third "chat" earlier this week with the lady I would be working directly under and .....
I HAVE THE JOB! :)
It has not been cleared yet with HR so it is 99% sure, I guess you would say. I am so so excited....and I will be starting in mid-November!
I will be working directly under a district manager of a Fortune 500 company and will be teaching classes as new updates are implemented. I will travel around the district working with individual managers and their staff. Did I mention that I am excited? Yes, I am very excited! :D
now don't laugh....
I have to really really brush up on Excel :( I took a course in college, but I have NOT used it enough to feel comfortable with using it frequently. every day. Taking stats from other spreadsheets and incorporating them into a new one. I know this is something a lot of people use every single day. Everyone has told me....it is NO big deal. Easy to learn. But I want to MASTER this computer program....I want to EXCEL in Excel! I want to walk right in to this position and manipulate this program like it was second nature. I don't want anyone within the company to wonder and second guess their decision to bring me on!
|Study, study...practice, practice, practice!|
So what does this mean?
Well..... it means I will spend less time in blogland for a few days or so. I will update with new posts as I can...but I won't be able to visit with all of you like I want to and make comments. :( ....I will be dedicated to learning this computer program in time for my start date at my new position!
I know it won't take forever to learn.... and with God as my source of strength and my provider, it is not a concern! :) I thank Him for being my Father, my Provider, my Shepherd, and my Counselor through my journey!
"Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup;
you have made my lot secure.
The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance."
~ Psalm 16:5
I will post with updates and be around soon to comment on your posts! :) Thank you again for all your sweet comments of encouragement and prayers! Blogland has the nicest people ever!!!
