That Tuesday an HR person called me asking if I would do a phone interview. I set up one for the following day. She told me a little bit about the job. Of course, by this time I had googled the company and read everything I could get my hands on, so I already know quite a bit about the company. This company packages and distributes berries to stores like Publix and Walmart. They have contracts with independent farms for the berries. That's where I would come in. I would be a liason between the grower and the company. So, if the farmer encountered any kind of berry problem, I would help him solve it. Also, I would be in charge of inspecting various farms in the south for quality and safety. There is a lot of travel involved with this job.
After the phone interview, HR wanted to know if I would come in for another interview with the person who would be my supervisor. I jumped at the chance and had one scheduled for Friday. The interview went very well as far as I could tell. I found out that I would get a company car, a cell phone, lap top and company credit card. I'll get to go to trade shows and possibly travel internationally!!! Everything is sounding very good, but I am now worried that my family is not going to be happy with me traveling so much. When I got home, I explained everything to my husband and he suprised me by being very supportive, as were my in-laws. So that was a load off my mind.
On Tuesday - yesterday, I recieved an offer for the position!!! I am so thrilled. This is an awesome opportunity for me. At my current, job my supervisor is retiring in 3 years and there is no opportunity for advancement. Unfortunately, it is a dead end position. I knew I would eventually have to leave, but change makes me nervous. I am still nervous, but I have very good feelings about this job change.
I wanted to share my news with all of you because 1. I am very excited about it and want to tell the whole world and 2. I may not have as much time to blog as I once did. I certainly still have plans to continue, but I will have to make adjustments to my new schedule.
As soon as my hubby gets home I plan on celebrating! (waggles eyebrows)
