How My Job Search is Going.

Everyone keeps asking how my job search is going.

I am happy to announce that I have been offered a part time job at a local Plasma Center.
The bad part is that it’s part time. I have talked to them about my need for full time and they plan to work on granting me that soon. 
The pay is less than half of what I used to make but at least it gets my foot in the door and some experience with my Phlebotomy training. 

I accepted and I start the first of February.

I am not as excited as I thought I would be. I’m scared and nervous. This is going to be so much different than what I’m used to. 
I also do not feel the support from others. 
When I mention I found a job, their face perks up. When I mention what and where, their face drops and they usually say something like, “oh, ew” or “why”. supposedly, plasma centers have a bad rap around here.
This makes a part of me feel less proud while it makes the other half of me want to go for it harder.

I am trying to keep a positive mind and do the best I can do. I want to be a great employee and do my job at it’s best. 

There is more going on too with my job opportunities, but I am not ready to talk about that on my blog just yet.  Let’s just say “While one door closed on me, two more have opened”.  
Stay tuned...


  1. How exciting! More to come too! It seems really great things are in store for you. I pray so and have actually prayed for you and your search. I hope you enjoy this new part time, who knows it may be a surprise to you and all as to how it will be. I wish you luck and blessings. I already know you'll be a great addition to their team. There is no doubt about that! You go get em' girl! I'm proud of you.

  2. Good luck! Ignore negative comments.

  3. I am one who can understand the hesitancy on your part. That job is very intimate. Maybe it is (as you say) a foot in the door to something you evidently have 'leanings' to. I know i sure appreciate the person being 'nice and friendly' when they are about to invade my body with a needle. If you adjust, I think you will be great at it.
    Just look at it as if I don't fit there are others that will work.

    Love you lady and hope it works to your advantage..... If not, heck there are other avenues......

  4. Hi Lisa!
    Best wishes on your new job. I am always appreciative when I get blood taken that the person knows their job. I had one girl who tried to stick me with a needle 3 times, then my hand, at which point I fainted. It sounds like you will do great.

  8. Follow your instincts - you will do well ♥

  9. It's one of those jobs that someone has to do. It's needed. You never who you will meet or what it will lead to!

    Today is Feb 1. How was your first day?
