Changing Jobs

So for the past few months, I’ve been looking for another job. All my spare energy, what little I have, was focused on finding another job. In the end I did find one, after many selection criteria and an interview. The process was a good way to find out what I wanted to do, and where I wanted to work.

Reflecting on what skills I had, and what skills I wanted, was another great opportunity for me. But the process of writing applications, sending them off, was so time consuming. I’d get home from work, cook dinner with my partner and child, then hop on and apply, and apply and then apply some more. Do some housework and then apply some more.

But I’m now moving into a new role, working for a specialist library that supports Languages and Multicultural resource provision. It’s so exciting, and a jump back into a field that I’ve enjoyed working in – Education and Training.

But the flip side is leaving so many new friends I’ve made over the 17 months I’ve worked in my now old job (today was my last day, so I’m on the reflective side). I’ve made plans to catch up with some next week and in the following weeks, and I hope that the friendships will live far longer than my time working at the old job.

So stay tuned as I boldly go, where no me has gone before.

    Thank you! I’m looking forward to my self imposed reading….to try and tackle the out of control pile of books I have beside my bed.
