As some people probably noticed I tweeted last week about having a job interview. While I do like my job, I occasionally check job postings to see what is out there. Well the other day I had been browsing through CraigsList job postings when I came across one for a Mac Operator. At the time I wasn’t sure what the job was, but the ad said it provided full training, all they wanted was someone with experience in the Apple OS and Adobe Software. So I applied and I got called in for an interview last Wednesday.
I went in and found out that what I would be doing is working in the Art Department of a production plant on a Mac, loading company logo’s onto templates in illustrator, checking them for accuracy, and then sending them to the production floor for printing on things like keychains, luggage tags, coin purses, etc. Needless to say I was stoked. The interview took about an hour, and at the end they told me I should hear from them by the end of the week. I got home and not even 2 hours later I got a call offering me the position!
I am so excited for so many reasons about this. While I don’t mind working in retail, I despise the hours, and holidays, and mean customers. Going back to working in an office monday through friday is what I’ve been hoping for. I want to be home every night to cook dinner. I want to know that I have holidays off with my family. I want to know what my schedule is every week, so that I can have a schedule for myself at home.
My last day at Piercing Pagoda will be May 27th, and I should start at my new job the following week I believe. I’m so excited about this, I can’t wait!
