I asked for it and here it is!!!!

I GOT A JOB!!!
Italic
I've been at home since Sydney came home last November. It's been great and since she went to "school" in May to help with her development and socialization, I have been ready to go back to work. With the summer upon us and many plans already made, I decided I'd just have to wait until school started back.
After our beach trip in July, I looked and looked. I applied and applied. FINALLY!! An interview and it went great --- oh shucks, not enough hours and it was 35 minutes from home. So, I started again. ANOTHER INTERVIEW....never heard anything, although it went GREAT too.
Suddenly, a job literally lands in my lap yesterday!!! HOW EXCITING!!! It's back with interview company #1 and it's 40 hours a week. Going back in FULL TIME right off the bat. I'll be working for a local mortgage company as a "pre-pocessor"(for lack of a better term). As the files come in, I'll be ordering title work, appraisals, pay offs, etc. I'm excited - I've never done this type work but they are more than happy to train me!!! How cool is that!! :-)
If I don't blog about my "first day of work" then you'll know I'm exhausted and have fallen asleep........

Kristi,

Molly here from CB. I was an admin for a mortgage company for almost 3 years. It's very tough work (I'd never do it again I don't think)and at month end when all the loans close it's very chaotic. Usually a lot of overtime is expected at month end. However you can move up and get to where you get a commission/bonus position which can be good. It's a tough industry to work in (nothing prepared me for it) and I wish you well in your new job, it can also be fun. The company I worked for had a lot of younger people working there but there was also a lot of fun types of activities to motivate them. PM me on CB if you want more info.

Best of luck on your first day!

Molly
