Episode 474: New Horizons

I mentioned before in a previous post that something might be on the horizon work wise for me, but at that point I didn’t want to elaborate in case I jinxed it! Well, I can now reveal that today I went for a job interview – and I got the job!

I had been feeling a little disgruntled at work one way or another, as some of you know, I have tried to address these issues but decided that it might now be a good time to spread my wings and look around to see what else is out there for me.

Despite being a creature of habit and having a fantastic group of friends that I work with, I decided that I need to challenge myself a little more and do something new. So when a job came up for what I am qualified to do (they are very few and far between), I decided to apply for it, and was delighted to be invited for an interview today.

Despite being very nervous, I managed to reply appropriately Β to all of the scenarios I was given, and the interviewers were pleased by the massive portfolio I took in (Well I thought they might like to flick through it)which they did.

I thought I might not hear anything until Tuesday as we have a Bank Holiday on Monday, but I got the call 2 hours after my interview offering me the job. Β I am now going to be part of the District Nursing teamΒ visiting people in their homes. This will hopefully be a new and exciting side to my career and I am really looking forward to it.

  1. Congratulations on the new job!

    We’ve got something similar here, where a nurse will come to your home for wound care and such. It really is nice for the patient to avoid the stress of the Emergency Room, and the one time we used the service the nurse seemed very happy.

  2. Congratulations. A change can be wondrous at times. My daughter is a nurse also and decided to try ‘travel nursing’ in remote communities in Canada and loves it. She makes her own schedule and can play tourist on days off. Hope you enjoy your new journey! It can be more rewarding and intimate working in clients homes.
