After graduating college I gave myself a couple weeks to find a job. I wanted to wait till after the Holidays to start looking so that I could spend time at home for the Holidays. Well boy.. that was dumb. Everyone else started before the Holidays so when I went looking I found nothing. Living in Rexburg is very difficult. I look at other towns like Boise, Utah, California or anywhere ELSE and there are TONS of opportunities. In Rexburg maybe like 5 options.. So I applied everywhere almost. it didn't even matter what it was for..
I got interviews.. I got job offers. But nothing I really wanted.
First offer.. Alfac.
ME sell insurance.. I could of done it..
Did I want to? No. So I turned it down.
Second Offer... Home Care Pulse.. quality control center..
Did I want it.. no but it payed decent and was in Rexburg. So I decided to take it.
First few weeks.. TERRIBLE.
I hated sitting at a desk all day.
I hated not being able to be social with my coworkers.
I hated being stuck inside.
I hated talking to rude people.
I hated it. PERIOD.
It got better.
I got a $50 bonus one pay check. That was nice
I always got my Average for Interviews.
It was an easy job.
Still didn't love it.
But I went to work because I needed a paycheck
I have a DEGREE I should be able to get a good job right?!
So I kept looking..
I Interviewed at..
Pain specialist of Idaho
Sleep Inn Suite (got the job here.. the pay sucked and it was far away, so I turned it down)
Then I got an interview at Nauvoo House Apartments. I used to live in these apartments. I had one interview and got called back for another. I thought it would be perfect to get this job! Free rent, utilities and everything plus a paycheck. Two days later I got a phone call. I GOT THE JOB! I was so excited and happy. Then I mentioned Sampson my puppy and everything came tumbling down. I wasn't able to keep him if I wanted the job.
Koop and I decided we would give him to my parents for the year. That night I came home and Koop was out of town for the weekend and Sampson was the only thing I came home to.. I couldn't do it, I cried. I couldn't give away my baby. So unfortunately I turned down that job.
At this point I gave up.. I thought that I would just stick it out at my job now..
I saw a post online that Rexburg Community Care Urgent Care was hiring. They needed a Full Time Admissions Clerk working with Mountain View Hospital. I applied.. Only to find out they already filled the position. :( A week later I got a call about the same position available in Rigby, I never applied but it seemed to be perfect. I had an interview, the lady was so nice and said she would hire me right now. It wasn't her place to hire, so she said she would tell them and I would get a second interview.
The next day I got a call to come in for a second interview in Rexburg, the position opened up again! Lucky ME!
Long story short...
I GOT THE JOB!
It is perfect! It pays great. I work three 12 hour shifts and have four days of the week off! I get benefits! Its flexible! And best part.. I don't have to dress up! (For those of you that know me, I hate dressing up, and wearing normal clothes, I like sweats!) I get to wear scrubs!
