Big Girl Job
I was offered my very first big girl job several months ago with an entrepreneur I met while serving at a local Mexican restaurant, a job I've had for the past 2 years. I was excited to further my business experience and jumped at the opportunity to meet with him and see what he had for me. We met in October for a quasi-interview. I was surprised to get an e-mail from him after leaving our meeting that day asking if he could refer me to a friend who also needed help with his business. This was definitely the first job referral I've had by a person I had just interviewed with. I was excited, humbled and a little stressed out at the thought of juggling 4 jobs, full time school and our own business. It was easy to leave the restaurant I had been serving at and my decision was made for me to narrow the jobs to only 2. The guy that I had originally interviewed with, sort of fell off the face of the earth but the job he had referred me to is ending up to be the best job I could have imagined. I'm so blessed by this new opportunity and can't wait to see what's in store for me as the new office manager at Agate Alley Bistro.
