Another job opportunity.....

I didn't get either of the other two positions I applied for, but that's ok. I try to keep my mind on the thought that if this opportunity doesn't work for me, some day another one will. And that philosophy has stood me in good stead. I didn't really want to leave NP Branch Lib. when I did, but I needed more hours & more pay. The customer service experience I gained working at a local bookstore, and at a local craft store have served me well in my current position, and though I was unhappy for a while, I was given the chance to get the position I've got now, which was what I wanted all along (as a stepping stone to a library assistant position, but without my current position, I wouldn't have a shot at a lib. assistant position at all).

So, I didn't get either the acquisitions position, or the Regional position. *shrug* Ok. No problem. That just means that there's something better out there waiting for me. And it looks like I'm right.

One of the library assistant's from NP Branch got the Regional position, which means that HER position out here at NP Branch will be opening up. It's a Lib. Assistant 3 (only available at NP Branch because they have to deal with reference questions & ILL's as well as regular Lib. Assistant duties like Noel Wein's assistants have), pay is un-listed (which means GOOD!), it's 20 hours a week (more time for Tay, and hopefully schooling!), and it's a 7 minute (summer) walk from home!!!!!! That's the absolutely best part. I'd be HOME!!!! I'd be in my neighbourhood, in my town, around my neighbours. I LOVED IT here before, and if I get this position I'll LOVE IT here again!!!!! (Only, I'll be loving it with more money and the same benefits! *grin*)

Soooo.... Anybody for keeping your finger's crossed & sending lots of P&PT???? *grin* I really, really want this job, and I AM setting my heart & my sights on it! And I believe I've got a fair shot. I'll keep y'all posted!!!!

Blessings!
