Oh, Yesssss….

Oh, Yessssss….

I'm feelin' the LOVE !!!

I've been working contract positions for years now.  When you're a contract worker you're essentially disposable, and people sometimes treat you that way.  You often work short term projects, which means another job search just as soon as the project is over (the hours tend to be very long on short term projects, so there's no time or energy to job search while you're in the middle of the project).  

There are pluses…like learning new technologies and processes, meeting new people, and making new friends, but being a contract worker can be very exhausting and disheartening. 

I was going to keep the news kind of on the down low because my heart really goes out to those who are still looking or who have loved ones who are still looking.  I've been that "still looking" person so many times and I know how hard it is. 

After today though, I just can't keep it under wraps.  Today was the first day of my new full time job!!!  It was amazing….really, really amazing!!!  I have never, ever started a job where people have been so overwhelmingly warm and kind.  So many people told me how glad they were that I was there.  They said it like they really meant it too….not just being professional and polite.  This afternoon a guy named Robert dropped by to see if I had everything I needed.  He looked at my chair (it was old, but more than adequate) and said, "You need another chair.  We got to get you another chair," and then he brought me a brand new chair. 

I truly hope this good news stirs hope for those of you who are still looking or know someone who's still looking.  There is hope.  Today I was definitely feelin' the love!!!

BTW….the photo was taken in the Central West End.  How could I possibly pass up a cute monkey, a cute hippo, and oh, Lorrrrrdy, a cute bunny too??!!!

  15. jaklumen says:

    Yet is it true, as I've heard, that contract workers usually avoid office politics? I guess you can't avoid such entirely if people think "contract" means "disposable", as you say.

  16. Brown Suga' says:

    Congrats! Very happy for you!

  17. jaklumen says:

    Of course they hired you! You're awesome! Love the chair story. Maybe somebody did that for him once, back when he was new on the job and he is passing along the kindness.Jeepahs, six interviews!

  20. kira :) says:

    Yay!! I am so thrilled you got the job!!! 🙂 Congratulations!!!
    I have been working part-time too, however for me I feel that part-time work gives me the flexibility to attend to my monthly bazaars and have enough time to create handmade items. So I guess it's a case to case basis 🙂
    Good luck!! And I hope you still get to blog often 🙂

  21. Autumnchilde says:

    Huzzah and congratulations!
    My sister has been doing contract work for the last couple years, too, and she just started a new contract position this week. The company she's working for, though, is rumored to be good about hiring contract people into full-time positions. So we're crossing our fingers.
    Hope your job turns out to be everything you hope!

  27. LBeeeze says:

  29. LBeeeze says:

    When you're a contract worker you really can't get involved in the office politics. You have to keep your head down and try your best to keep doing your job no matter what, but it offers a lot of great learning experiences.

  30. LBeeeze says:

    I very much agree with you and count myself very, very lucky indeed.
