A week before my maternity leave ended, my boss called me at home to tell me about an opportunity.
He knew about a job opportunity I was interested in and submitted my name as a candidate. How cool is that?
I went back to work Monday, had an interview on Tuesday, busted my butt Wednesday and Thursday wrapping up a few follow ups for the ongoing projects I was working on before my maternity leave (just in case), and on Friday I learned I got the job!
I started my new job the next Monday.
My new job is… it’s keeping me on my toes.
Actually, it’s kicking my butt. But I think that’s a good thing. I’m always happiest at work when I’m challenged. A month from now when everything isn’t brand new and I’m caught up, I’m sure I won’t feel so overwhelmed.
But right now? Right now I’m paddling furiously to keep my head above water.
