On the Job Front

Thanks to Gir, Violet, and Eden for your comments on my last post regarding my Seattle-area job that didn't happen. I did some crying, talked with my Mom and my husband, and came to the realization that this job just wasn't the right one.

Today I gave the Washington District Manager a call and we discussed the job possibilities up North. She surprised me by describing something I wouldn't have thought possible; not just a transfer, but a promotion! She has offered to create a position almost identical to my own in the store closest to the area we plan to move into, then promote me into a District-focused (as opposed to store-focused) role once the kinks are ironed out in the near future (Corporate hoo-ha and whatnot). The job would be created specifically for me, and I would be based out of any store I would like, as well as working from home much of the time. Hello, possible dream job.

We also discussed a store management job that would propel me toward a future as a General Manager, so I'll likely apply for that and see where things take me.

Finally, she asked what my timeline is for moving to Tacoma. I told her I wasn't sure, since I was anticipating moving when a job happened, not moving whenever I wanted with a job waiting.

I feel a real sense of possibility right now.

Is this maybe what they had in mind from the beginning? Why you didn't even get the interview for the transfer? It sounds like it could be.

YAY! That'd be so cool! When do you think you'll find out? I know it's your life and all, but I hate not knowing! : )
