I Got a New Job

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 139 People

    I was so depressed without work.

    I couldn't find the right job for me. My career went down the wrong path. But I didn't give up. I kept pressing on and somehow I got a job I never thought I'd be considered for. God has truly blessed me even though I thought all hope was lost. I'm glad I didn't give up.

    So I used to have a job

    Fast Food . . . Again

    I rushed to find a new job after my husband quit his.  I hope to become a manager there and pay for my hubby to go to school.  Although fast food doesn't pay well, I enjoy doing it.  I think that this company will be a fun place to work.

    So Happy I Could Just About Die. Or Scream. Or Scream and Then Die.

    That title pretty much sums it up. I'm going to be making more money doing something I love, and I don't have to do selling of any sort and I don't have to do customer service. To hell with Rollaids. Relief is spelled J-O-B.
