My Job Hunting Finally Paid Off

For several months I have been applying for different positions within Kroger that I could transfer to, but nothing was working out, so I decided it was best to go outside the company in hopes of finding the right fit for me. I applied for several positions, but the only interview I got was with Vanderbilt University Medical Center. I worked there the first time I moved to Nashville back in December 2009. I had tried several times to get rehired, but nothing ever panned out until now.

I applied on May 9th for several positions they had advertised, but only received a call back on one position. My interview was on the 21st. On the 24th I received an offer that I couldn’t say no too. The salary and benefits were more than I had expected. Because the supervisor would be out of the office for almost the entire month of June, my start date was put off until July 1st. Now I had to decide how much of a notice I would give to Kroger. I ended up giving them a three-week notice, which I didn’t have to do, but I try not to burn too many bridges when I leave a job.

Now I can go through the rest of the month with ease knowing that I have a new job to look forward too and a world of opportunities waiting for me.
