A Tweetable Thank You

Because I blindly assume that every person that I have contact with is a dedicated reader of my blog, I trust that you’re familiar with my recent, and exhaustive, attempt at finding part-time work. (This is a blatant lie.  I realize completely that out of my 430ish followers, about 20 read this.  Sometimes I still have a hard time figuring out how that number is even that high)  Well, I’m happy to report that I FOUND A JOB! 

Before I do any kind of pimping, I’d like to thank everyone who sent me tweets, direct messages and emails.  I know that I didn’t end up getting a job directly from any of my tweeps, but indirectly all that support really kept my head up through the process.  I got a couple of requests for my resume, I got a few very intuitive leads, and I got lots of support and encouragement.  A heartfelt thank you goes out to @BillableBarbie, @AHGinCLE, @TeamPribisko, @JoeG2001, @itsallgoodsara, @Jukebox65 and @joyfully_e specifically, but also to everyone I had conversation with about job hunting.  Everything from a resume request to a “Just keep trying, you’ll get noticed soon” really kept me in the game.  Thank you.

Now that the “thank you”s are taken care of, here’s a small bit of pimping.  The place that hired me is called Rooms Today Outlet, located at the corner of Pearl and Brookpark Roads in Cleveland.  I’ll let everyone know when I’m done with training, in case there are any tweeps out there that need some fancy living room duds.  (Don’t worry, it’s NOT a commission sales position, so I won’t running customers down and begging for business.)  Hopefully I can hook you up.

I’m happy as a clam.  One that isn’t about to be ripped apart and cooked at the Olive Garden.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS! I know how hard it is to find a job in this economy (it took my husband almost a year) and it’s hard not to take the rejections personally. With so many viable candidates for any one job you just can’t take it personally.

    I’m super happy for you.

    • Thanks! It was a little like a #firstworldproblem because I was looking for a supplemental income job, but still a ginormous pain in the ass.

      Also, I’m aware that ginormous isn’t a word. Neither is ORLY or STFU, but you get the point. ;-p
