Several hours ago, I received a call from a hiring manager who let me know that she was offering me a job. I checked out the details in the firm’s offer letter online and accepted it.
So, I landed a job ! YAY !
I go in on July 9th for new employee orientation and then start paid training on the 16th. Basically, it’s the entry-level version of the job that my late wife held during the last 5 years she was alive — I’m going to be an Import Coordinator at FedEx Trade Networks. This means I will be handling the paperwork for some of the companies that ship goods into the USA through FedEx.
The training will teach me about the regulations I need to know and the systems that I will be using to accomplish the goals that they set for me. Between that learning curve and the open floor plan at the job site, I know there will be challenges — but I’m up for them.
FedEx is a great company to work for, with some excellent benefits. Having those benefits and a steady income will relieve many of my current worries.
When I start training on the 16th, my focus will be on that, so all my notary work will have to take a back seat until I am settled into my new job.
Once I’m doing well there, I will see how much time I can spend on notary work, as I do like to help the public. Between now and the 16th, I have some projects to complete.
Of course, I will continue to write, as I am a writer.
Thank you to everyone who helped me or supported me during the past 2+ years as I lived through my grief and mourning.
