As a teenager we were all asked to write about where we saw ourselves in 10 years. When I was a sophomore in high school, I’m pretty sure my answer wouldn’t have been “underemployed (but working two jobs) and living with my parents”. Yet just a few weeks ago this was my life. Our lives don’t always go as planned, but being in the right place at the right time can change everything in an instant.
About a month ago I attended a job fair at my alma mater and met a representative from WhereYouShop. The same day I received a call and set up an interview. Within a few days I was interviewed and offered my first full-time adult job. That Wednesday will always stick out in my memory, because in the space of a few short hours I got a brand new job and was approved to move into my first apartment, with my kittens of course!
In the past few weeks I’ve transformed into a new person, and many of my friends and family members have commented on it. I’m happier, more confident and much better dressed. I am thrilled to have an opportunity to work for WhereYouShop, one I couldn’t have dreamed of just a short while ago.
