OHP

It's Hump Day, which also means it's OH HOW PINTERESTING DAY!!! But before I get into that, I have some exciting news to share...

So those of you who read my blog on the daily know that I am going to be losing my current job at the end of October. I absolutely love what I do and am devastated about this change, but we lost our funding so there's nothing much we can do. That's the life of a non-profit!

I've been getting really discouraged about the job hunt. Two of my co-workers already have new jobs and another has been interviewed and was offered a position, and lil ol me was just waiting and waiting until....

On my walk home from the gym last night I received a phone call from the county's Head Start! Head Start is a federally funded preschool program that promotes school readiness for low-income children. I am qualified for the Family Services Worker position, and which my supervisor highly recommended me for. I have my fingers crossed and am saying lots of prayers because I want this job so bad! It's exactly what I want to be doing after I leave my current position and the plus side?...a lot of the preschool children enrolled in the program I'm currently working in will be transitioned to this particular Head Start! The only downfall is that as of right now, the position is 25 hours a week. Obviously, I would prefer a full-time position, but begger's can't be chooser's. I will be getting paid quite a bit more than I'm making now, and there is potential for this position to be moved to full-time status once the grantee is changed. I have an interview tomorrow afternoon, so all you pray-ers out there, send up a prayer for me! And if you don't pray? I'll take all the good ju-ju I can get!  

Moving on...
