Back to work

I know I’m one of the lucky ones.  It only took about three weeks to find a job.  After having nearly 4 years off I wasn’t too sure what to expect – or how the job market is at the moment.  Activating the Seek profile again wasn’t something I was looking forward to, especially after being self employed for the last few years.

I was open minded to what I could do – but narrowed it down to wanting to work part-time… which cuts out most of the job listings anyway.  I sent my application off for five through Seek, and decided to get in contact with Carmel from Asset Recruitment to find out what she had on the books.

I went in – we had a chat about what I was after and she consequently set up two interviews for me last week.  I was offered a Recruitment Coordinator role today.  It’s a temporary role for a Women’s health project up at the hospital.  The beauty is it has flexibility to fit in with Ella’s school hours with the added benefit of being a 10 minute bus ride from home. No hunting for car parks.  I’m really looking forward to the change… new routine… and SALARY!

Gotta admit – I’ve already started “work wardrobe” shopping – I’m loving it too.  Even though it’s frustrating when you can’t find your size, I am so glad I op-shop.  I found the most amazing dress for $10 at the Hospice last week, 2 other retro dresses (for $1 each) and a 50s style red cardi for $6; I’m just going to add vintage buttons to it.  Talk about guilt free shopping.
