I Got A Job!

Yippee!!!!! I got a job! First of all, I need to fill you in on a little back story. On Halloween, we went to my parent's ward Halloween party. While we were eating our soup, we sat next to Bill and RaNae McKee and their family. I told him that I was on the job hunt and that if he had any openings to keep me in mind. I decided to sell myself and tell him I had an associates degree in Medical Office Technology. He seemed impressed by that but that was how our conversation was left.

Much to my surprise, Bill called me this morning! He had an opening for a part-time receptionist and wanted to know if I wanted it. I said HECK YEAH! Well, actually I was a little more professional but still really excited. I went in today and started getting trained. For those who don't know, Bill McKee is a counselor and has his own company, Center Counseling. He has several (and I mean several!!!!) other counselors who work for him so it is a BUSY and HOPPING place!

I'm really overwhelmed by it all but I know I will learn it all eventually. I'm pretty pumped. I was really close to accepting a minimum wage job at ShopKo when he called. Hmmm ... I think the Lord might have had something to do with it! ;o) ShopKo would have been fine but I really did not want to work Sundays and holidays. Now, I don't have to!

Anyway, I'll stop blabbing. I just had to share my good news.

That's great, Kjerstin! At least you're working for someone that you know. That's got to be a plus. Keep me in the loop as to how it is!
