I'm telling you the truth...
In this industry, I've seen more people drag their feet, than squirrels eating peanuts in Central Park. That's a fact!
Folks, when you want results in the job industry or in life (in general), you have to implement principles that make you move. Therefore, you MUST be:
Be like the squirrel as illustrated below; wake-up with a purpose in life; "don't drag your feet" in choosing the best peanuts that gets results.
Then, everything else will fall-in-place.
Choose to learn, choose to earn.
I Believe You Can...!
Working for 2 spine doctor's and sitting their clinics, scheduling appointments,tests, surgeries, taking patient calls, covering for other secretaries kept me busy from 6 am to 5 pm. Then when the work comp clinics started and I started helping there, I was working Saturdays. So I didn't have any down time.
I had the perfect job just land in my lap (was through a temp agency, I was called on a Friday to start the next Monday (no interview)). (I never posted as I didn't want to jinx myself) The company was behind since January 2016 so I went in and did what I do, all of their books/accounts (all in about 6 weeks even though I was there almost 3 months but I was suppose to use a tablet/phone to do bookkeeping at the start so I bought a computer and a 10 key). While there they started a side company and setting that up found out the original company was behind in their business licenses since 2013 (they had no idea). I really thought I had a job there especially after saving them from the government agencies not once but 3x, I get the dreaded call from the temp agency last Friday that my contract was up on Thursday and I wasn't suppose to work on Friday and they are going to keep the college intern (working on an accounting degree but had no idea what Adobe was and didn't know how to set up a chart of accounts or make journal entries). OK their loss!
While crying in the parking lot (as I really liked the place and no one mentioned to me about not being hired directly,) I get a call from an actual CPA to interview Monday (interview went great and has even emailed me that I am one of the top candidates) AND while in that interview I missed a call from the temp service....My folder is full of impressive reviews and the work I can do, I was offered a position as Salaried Professional (Basically I work for the Temp service full-time but have to be sent everywhere to get whatever done)...I still have to do an interview again tomorrow and take tests. I am good at what I do, love what I do and my in-laws have talked me into going back to college to get a degree.
God does work in mysterious ways! Just keep doing what you are doing and things will happen! I am XX fingers for myself and for everyone out there looking.
Good Luck to Everyone!
