In case you missed the good news, I finally got a job! Last Friday afternoon, I was offered a position as a server at a fine-dining restaurant, and I gladly accepted it. I had my orientation the following Monday and I start training this weekend. Once I’m done with training, I’ll be working anywhere from 3-5 nights a week. The restaurant is only a 10 minute drive from my apartment, so that’s awesome. Oh, and the best part? Since the restaurant is fancy and expensive, I’ll be making
fat stacks really good tips.
I know this job isn’t as great as a full-time Big Kid Job, but I’m still super excited about it. For one, I will be making WAY more money as a server at a fine-dining restaurant than I make from my unemployment benefits, which means I can start working on my goal of paying off my debt. Second, having a job to go to means I now have a reason to get out of the house more often. No more cabin fever for this lady!
Even though I have a job now, my job search is not over. I mentioned before that I want to work two jobs this year in order to expedite the process of paying off my debt, so along with getting a job, I want to get a side hustle. Since I now have a job where I’ll be working nights, I need to find a day job (ideally some kind of office job). I have a phone interview today for a part-time, entry-level, contracted job at a non-profit that I’m hoping to get. Not only is this job very similar to the contracted job I worked over the summer, but it would be more relevant experience to add to my non-profit resume. Wish me luck!
I really can’t express enough how happy I am about my new part-time job. I plan to blog in detail next week about the wrath that is unemployment, but for now, the important thing to focus on is that I have a job again, and that means things are finally starting to look up.
When was the last time you got good news? What was the news?
