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...
