Well, I got the call today. I got the job. I start on the 24th. I am excited and sad all wrapped into one. The good thing is - I don't have to fill out any more stinkin' applications. I hate doing that.
I guess I should tell you about the job. It is with this agency that contracts with Children's Services. They have traditionally worked with Portage County but within the last year they hooked up with Summit County - which is where I will be working. I will be a Case Manager. I will have families assigned to me that have had their children removed but the children have been reunified. I will be helping them with their parenting skills and what not. I may be driving them to appointments or helping them get food stamps - among other things. Like I've told some of you...she said (my new boss) I would be doing a lot of telling people what to do. Perfect for me, right? Ha. I get to make my own schedule but obviously I need to work around the families I am going to be working with. Get this...I asked her what time I needed to be there on Monday and she said 9-ISH! If you know me...you understand that this may be the PERFECT job for me based on that alone. I get to wear whatever I want and my office will be in one of my favorite cities, Kent! I am going to have to go in people's homes and I am a little nervous about that but I think I will get over that pretty quick. Also, I won't be able to talk about what happens at work much because it is all confidential.
So that is it. It has been one month today and I got a job. That wasn't so bad. Thanks for all your prayers!
