So as I was going on my merry way and usual life yesterday, things changed suddenly when I stepped into my office at work.
My Boss called me into the conference area to “chat”… and meanwhile, here I was thinking I was 1. going to get in trouble, or 2. going to have to do another photo shoot for the company (yes, they use me lol not a fan thou because I’m on various websites)… but turns out he caught wind that I have an interview this Thursday.
And I know what you’re thinking… WAITTTT we didn’t know about this!!
Well, easy friends, I was too preoccupied with a certain boy
But yes, it’s true. A company contacted me last week and asked if they could interview me for a bookkeeping position.
So naturally I said yes, and figured it’s always good to see what else is out there (said everyone in this economy)…
Backing things up a bit… during the Holiday Party, the accountant at my current job was asking me how the job search was going and told me to send him my resume in case he saw anything.
So I did, and when this position came to my attention, I asked if I could put him down as a reference.
I didn’t realize this would make him think he could go tell my BOSS!
Well… Mister Boss sat me down and told me that in a small company there is always someone who is a blabber mouth and people always talk… and you know what he did????
>>HE BEGGED ME TO STAY<<
He basically asked me what he would have to pay me to keep me here, and that they love me and he loves the work I do, and he’s not ready to lose me as an employee.
Anything I want… any pay I want (of course reasonable), benefits, 9-5, lunch… all that jazz.
So I sat there in shock and told him that I did have an interview and I feel it’s good for me to see what else is out there since I am still young.
And that pretty much brought tears to his eyes….
So, let’s just say, I have a lot of thinking to do…. a whole LOT of thinking. I wasn’t planning on staying where I am much longer, just because my dream job is to work for an Arts Organization in the communications department, but his offer really does sound good.
I’m just so confuseddddd
Not to mention I was very emotional yesterday lol I actually cried on my drive home!
Ok, not that dramatic, but you get the idea haha
But that could have also been because I was listening to a sad Tay Swift song
Either way, I have lots to think about, and honestly work yesterday was so awkward… like BEYOND awkward. He was being way wayyyy nice to me—my sister said he’s in panic mode lol
So that is my life right now…
Question of the Day:
What are your thoughts on this offer?
PS: I’m in the process of getting a camera, any suggestions? One that won’t leave me poor
