I am happy to announce, I have secured a job for the new year 🙂
It comes with a great pay jump, health and dental and even has holiday days that I can take to go home for a few visits!
This really has taken the pressure off for a while and made me feel really good about myself.
It isn’t in a library though…
I am aware that I am qualified in the area of Library and Information Studies now, but after working in a Public Library for nearly 6 months, I do not think the setting is for me.
I understand office politics, as it was forced upon me a few years ago, but working for a public library run by the local government can be a bit stressful. I found it difficult to adjust from my retail job into a “traditional” library role. I loved it, don’t get me wrong!
I just think I have out grown it, as I prepare to leave.
Everyone I work with is lovely, so grounded and genuinely nice people, but the sense that there was something else out there that I could do has been itching at me for a while.
My boss was very honest and said that my contract was unlikely to be renewed due to budget and also the need to have a L.A on the floor for which I work, which I totally understand. Sometimes it feels like I am trying very hard to look busy, and other days I am rushed off my feet.
I have managed to get a job in the oil industry, which I am very excited about starting!!! It will open a lot of doors for me and also be internationally recognized for my future plans (my partner and I would like to move to Canada before we are 30)!
As you can tell from my other posts, I will not be revealing where I will be working, as that is a private thing, but I will discuss my experiences of my new position and the career I am going to take in this area!
I am having so much fun writing this blog, thank you to all my followers and I hope you and yours have a fantastic Christmas break, whatever your traditions are!
