I am nearing the end of an event filled year as an "AARP My Dream Job" winner in the 'New Worker' category. I am grateful for all of the blessings I have received as one of the six winners. I have posted my story in the form of journals both on my page and the Water Cooler and New Worker group pages. I apologize both to AARP and readers for the gaps between entries. As much fun as winning this contest has been, the past year was filled with personal sorrow as people I loved faced illness and death. Life takes many turns and at times it feels like a roller coaster ride with more downs than ups. I am nearing the end of my "reign" and the requirement of journalling, but, I plan to continue as I find that putting things in writing is a great way to ascertain if I'm moving forward, just treading water or falling behind. I thank you for showing an interest in my journals and pray that all goes well for you in the coming year. It is supposed to be a year of "change" so let's all pray that it is change for the good.
As for my current situation with my 'dream job' search...
When I received my fifth "Thank you for you interest in our firm/company/organization" letter, I became more than a little discouraged. I began looking (again) at what I could 'do' to make myself more marketable. As a result, I have decided to continue with my education with the goal of earning a bachelor's degree in business management. I am also in the process of registering for mediation training to earn certification as a Community Mediatior. When that initial training is completed, I have the option to receive more specialized training, which I plan on pursuing. I have also decided that I will resume my job search when the mediation trainings are completed and added to my resume. I will continue journaling, so if you check this site from time to time there will be updates.
Have a blessed Christmas/Hanukah/Kwanzaa!
My journey continues........... Stef
