I have heard from other people all kinds of different things...
...don't take the first job your offered.
...Do take the first job. The goal is to gain experience.
...Take whatever your offered even if you don't think you can handle it.
....don't bite off more than you can chew..challenges are good but take your time.
OMG....it's all too much!!!!
I've decided to go with my instincts.
I shadowed one place....I knew pretty quick it was not the shift/place for me.
I interviewed for another...but am concerned two 16's back to back would be too much for me in my 40's. But I'll take it if I have to.
I interview for a position tomorrow that is what I consider ideal. overnights. four 8's and 2 off. My mentor says I'll be wasting my skills but I feel like it's right for me. I'm going w/ my gut. Right or wrong I'll have no one else to blame if I'm wrong...but no one knows me better than I do....so I think this is the one for me. And I love the facility too. Location is awesome...no drive time. It is literally less than a mile from my house...a residential mile...not a main traffic filled road mile. LOL.
I've been excited ever since I got the call today. I want THAT job!
It's good to know what's right...this feels right.
ok so I hijacked...guess I needed to really give myself permission to go against the grain and be happy with getting what I wanted where I wanted. LOL.
