I got a JOB

February 25, 2018 | Midlife

A few weeks back I wrote about searching for a J-O-B and how difficult it was to get interviews. Well I’m happy to report that I finally got the winning interview.


I start my new job on the 26th working for Kroger. I’ll be in the corporate office in Nashville working in the accounting department. I am so excited for this opportunity. When I walked into the interview I felt the job was mine before we even started talking. There was just a peace I felt and I had been praying for days that God would send me to the right place that he had for me and the feeling of peace I had told me this was going to be my opportunity. There is opportunity to grow with the company and I could end up moving across the country if something presents itself in the future.


The only downfall so far is I will have to drive an hour each way to get to work, but after a while I’ll get use to it. Not sure if working 9 hour days is a pro or a con, but having to only work 4 hours per day on Friday is definitely a con. That way I have at least one day a week to take care of personal stuff without having to take off work to get stuff done.


I really was beginning to think I would never get a job, but as soon as I walked out of the interview I knew the call was going to come that I had this job. When the phone rang two days later I knew I was going to be getting good news. I can’t explain the excitement I felt when she said the words, “we want to offer you the job!”  I’m looking forward to seeing where this job takes me.
